It was claimed owner Todd Boehly was keen on landing Ronaldo but the deal was not given the green light by then manager Thomas Tuchel.

But with Chelsea struggling for goals they could turn to Ronaldo, report The Mirror.

However, the Blues will only make an approach for the superstar if he is sacked by United.

Red Devils chiefs are ready to rip up Ronaldo’s contract and have vowed to take action against the 37-year-old.

But first they need a guarantee from lawyers that they can terminate Ronaldo’s contract without having to pay him a penny.

Reports claim United could even file a lawsuit against Ronaldo over allegations his recent comments have damaged the club’s reputation and caused financial loss.

Ronaldo slammed the way the club has been run over the last decade in a bombshell interview with SunSport columnist Piers Morgan.

The Portuguese claimed the club has not progressed since Sir Alex Ferguson left in 2013.

He also criticised the club’s appointment of interim boss Ralf Rangnick last season and said he does not respect Erik ten Hag.

United responded by releasing a statement saying: “Manchester United notes the media coverage regarding an interview by Cristiano Ronaldo.

“The club will consider its response after the full facts have been established.

“Our focus remains on preparing for the second half of the season and continuing the momentum, belief and togetherness being built among the players, manager, staff, and fans.”
