The rumours that circulated around the reason Thomas Tuchel was sacked this season involved Cristiano Ronaldo. Todd Boehly was interested in bringing the iconic player in to solve Chelsea's striker problem, but Thomas Tuchel reportedly disagreed.

Ronaldo is now reportedly allowed to leave Manchester United in January after he is becoming the lowest striker on the pecking order at the club. He was an unused sub in Manchester United 6-3 defeat to Manchester City yesterday, with Anthony Martial being preferred.

The player is now allowed to leave in January, and could that prompt Todd Boehly to renew his interest?
