- Chelsea are reportedly out of the race to sign Cristiano Ronaldo

- Blues owner Todd Boehly has long been interested in signing the striker
- But Blues boss Graham Potter would have doubts about the possible deal
Chelsea are on the verge of not making a transfer after the World Cup for star player Cristiano Ronaldo who cancels his contract.
Blues owner Todd Boehly has long been an admirer of the 37-year-old and sought to bring him to Stamford Bridge this summer amid his Manchester United transfer saga.
Ronaldo insisted Champions League football was one of the main reasons for his desire to leave Old Trafford during the summer term, an opportunity that a move to Chelsea would offer him.

Ronaldo left Manchester United on Tuesday after his contract was terminated by the club
With United announcing on Tuesday that Ronaldo’s lucrative contract with the club has ended with immediate effect, there has been much speculation about where the Portugal captain will play his club football after the World Cup.
Boehly’s previous interest in the player, coupled with reports that Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes is willing to do business with the club, has led to Chelsea being voted the favorite of England teams to sign the star.
But a message from The sun has claimed that Chelsea are now unlikely to play a part in the striker’s future, but that the situation could change.
“Chelsea has become cold to him. But if Todd Boehly decided to change his mind, he’d have to stop for a while.’ A source reports this to SunSport.

Boehly’s ambition to sign Ronaldo after taking over the West London club earlier this year was well documented.
It is believed the 49-year-old’s desire to sign the former Real Madrid star led to friction between the American and then-Blues boss Thomas Tuchel.
Tuchel was unexpectedly sacked earlier this season after a poor run of form and replaced by Brighton boss Graham Potter.
However, like his predecessor, Potter would also not be interested in signing the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, despite his team scoring just twice in their last five Premier League games.
