Thomas Tuchel has made his decision for Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo

The Chelsea transfer window will inevitably be lively. On the one hand, the Blues have changed ownership, with Todd Boehly and his consortium succeeding Roman Abramovich and his teams. On the other hand, the Londoners have lost several important players at the end of the contract, such as Antonio Rüdiger and Andreas Christensen, or on loan, like Romelu Lukaku who returned to Inter.

Aware that the residents of Stamford Bridge have their work cut out for them, many agents and intermediaries are trying to place players. Thus, Neymar (30 years old, Paris SG) and Cristiano Ronaldo (37 years old, Manchester United) have been proposed to the new management of the club. Contacts already exist between the different parties as we have already explained to you in both cases.

TT not convinced

Yes, but now, a man hesitates. According to London Evening Standard, Thomas Tuchel would not be particularly thrilled by these two names. The German, who previously worked with the Brazilian during his time at PSG, doesn’t seem convinced his side need a superstar to have a successful season. Even though The Athletic explains that the German technician would like to discuss with Cristiano Ronaldo to form a definitive opinion on the subject. We will also remember that it was without any real reference that his Chelsea won the Champions League in 2021.

Reinforced by the new bosses of the club, the technician has a wider right to look at the transfer market this summer. For example, he was promised at least six reinforcements, recalls the English daily. But, presumably, TT doesn’t fancy Neymar or Ronaldo. He prefers to bet on Raheem Sterling (27, Manchester City), so as not to unbalance his locker room. It’s his choice.
