As the 2022 transfer window nears its end, pundits have predicted a potential clash between Todd Boehly and his manager, Thomas Tuchel. Todd Boehly has been an admirer of Cristiano Ronaldo, while the Chelsea football pattern developed by Thomas Tuchel may be a forlorn desert for the Man United star.

Since taking over the reins from former Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, Todd Boehly has indicated an interest in signing the Portugal international after a complicated Man United condition.

Todd Boehly has reportedly followed developments at Old Trafford concerning the Premier League, La Liga, and Serie A icon. He is interested in signing the striker if conditions remain as they are.

Ronaldo has had a bumpy and uneasy ride in his second spell with Manchester United. Ronaldo returned to his former club, where he rose to stardom, in a dramatic deal that saw him leave the Old Ladies of Turin in the summer of 2021. Before leaving the Italian giants, Ronaldo has made 134 appearances for the club, scoring 101 goals and delivering 20 assists. He has won two Serie A titles, two Italy Super Cups, and one Coppa Italia.

Ronaldo returned to Manchester United in 2021 and has scored 24 goals for the Red Devils, dragging the club to the 6th position in the 2021-2022 Premier League table.

Midway into the season, Ronaldo admitted his desire to have Manchester United play in the Champions League though they could not challenge for the Premier League title. The Red Devils had a poor and disappointing season which earned them only Europa League football after finishing 6th on the league table.

The post-season drama that has unfolded at Old Trafford around Cristiano Ronaldo has been a talking point, making major headlines.

After a disappointing run, Ronaldo has opted to leave the Old Trafford club. He has also expressed concerns about Ten Hag’s dragging transfer plans and the need to sign other strikers.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils have slashed the players’ wages by 25℅ after the team failed to qualify for Champions League.

The arrival of Erik Ten Hag was expected to turn the tides around, but it was not to be. Two unexpected heavy defeats have shattered all hopes from a promising preseason.

Ten Hag is eager to work with Ronaldo, but the highly-rated forward has his nose where he can play Champions League football. He is ready to take a pay cut to join any club with a Champions League offer.

The Red Devils have remained adamant over Ronaldo’s call for the exit. With Bayern Munich, PSG, Chelsea, and Atletico Madrid linked to the player, they have maintained that Ronaldo is not for sale.

Save Man United’s inability to make it to the Champions League, Ronaldo is not having a good time at the Old Trafford club. In Man United’s two opening matches, he has shown that he is not impressed with the club’s setup.

Although he has recently remained silent over his Man United future, it has been revealed that he is unhappy at the club, and the possibility of hitting the exit door remains open.

Todd Boehly is reportedly monitoring proceedings and developments around the Portuguese at Old Trafford. He has planned a last-minute attempt to sign the forward if no other club indicates interest before the transfer window closes.

This plan does not sit well with his coach Thomas Tuchel, whose football pattern may be strange to the Portuguese.

Hence, more dramatic events are expected in this Cristiano Ronaldo saga as the transfer window closes officially on September 1.
