CHELSEA are interested in signing Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo after his fall-out with manager Erik ten Hag, reports suggest.
Ronaldo, 37,Â refused to come on against TottenhamÂ on Wednesday’s 2-0 victory and stormed down the tunnel with injury time still to play before leaving Old Trafford entirely.
As a result, United boss Ten Hag didn’t include the five-time Ballon d’Or winner in the squad for Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Chelsea and ordered him to train by himself at Carrington.
The star forward’s future with the Red Devils has become uncertain with reports suggesting the club is even open to letting him go for free in January if no offers arrive.
According to Sunday World, Chelsea are tempted to make a move for the Portugal international in the January transfer window.
The Blues were one of several clubs contacted by the 37-year-old’s representatives last summer after he decided to leave United.
The West Londoners’ new owner Todd Boehly was keen to bring the Portuguese superstar over to Stamford Bridge but former manager Thomas Tuchel opted against a potential deal.
But with Tuchel now gone, Boehly is keen to renew his interest and explore a swoop in the New Year.
Chelsea appear keen on a temporary deal that would see Ronaldo stay until the end of the season with an option to extend into a second term.
That would also pose as an ideal outcome for the Real Madrid legend and United.

The two parties are set to hold talks in the next 48 hours to resolve the ex-Juventus star’s future.
Ronaldo is reportedly prepared to take a pay-cut on his current United salary to secure a move away.
