William Gallas thinks the 37-year-old may be Graham Potter’s ideal temporary solution, and he says that.
After giving a contentious interview to Piers Morgan in which he criticised Erik ten Hag, the Glazers, and the club’s facilities, Ronaldo quit United in November.
After Morocco’s unexpected victory over Portugal on Saturday, the veteran saw his World Cup aspirations come to an end.
Similar to his performance against Switzerland in the previous round, Ronaldo started the game on the bench.
For Ronaldo, who lost his spot at Old Trafford before leaving, it continues the season’s trend.
Gallas has advised Chelsea, a team that struggles to score goals, to pursue Ronaldo because he still has plenty to offer.
According to Gallas, Todd Boehly wanted Cristiano Ronaldo in his team, whilst Thomas Tuchel did not.
‘Perhaps it’s a nice chance for Chelsea to sign Ronaldo for the next six months. However, Ronaldo stated that he would retire if he won the World Cup.
Ronaldo would profit from moving to Chelsea since it would allow him to continue competing in the Champions League, and Chelsea would gain because they would need a striker.
Despite offers from the Middle East and Australia, Ronaldo is looking for a Champions League team.
The striker was making about £500,000 per week at Old Trafford, but if he wants to stay in Europe, he will need to drastically lower his wage demands.
