‘Tuchel Struggled’ - Pundit Thinks Cristiano Ronaldo Would Not Be a Good Signing for Chelsea

With Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo being heavily linked with a move to Chelsea this summer, one former player thinks it wouldn't be a good move.

After David Ornstein confirmed that Chelsea's owner Todd Boehly was indeed interested in Ronaldo, the Blues fanbase was instantly split about the news.

One side thought it would be a good idea to bring the Portuguese forward in, whilst others believed signing a 37-year-old striker isn't the answer.

However, with no transfers happening so far this window, Chelsea fans will take anyone at the point.

Along with fans voicing their concern about signing CR7, there have been some pundits who also think it would be the wrong move for both sides.

“Maybe the owner might want him but I don’t think Tuchel will want him because of what happened at PSG.

“At the moment at Chelsea, he’s got players who is he bigger than, if Ronaldo comes he’s bigger than the manager.”
