CHELSEA are no longer interested in signing Cristiano Ronaldo to leave the Manchester United star with NO offers.
Blues new owner Todd Boehly was offered Ronaldo, 37, by the player’s representative Jorge Mendes as he seeks an Old Trafford exit.
A summer move for the Portuguese star – who has 12 months left of a two-year contract at United – was briefly considered at Stamford Bridge.
However, after a discussion between boss Thomas Tuchel and American businessman Boehly, Chelsea have decided to end any potential approach.
New Man United boss Erik ten Hag has reiterated that Ronaldo is not for sale and still in his plans despite the player’s pre-season no-show in Thailand due to “personal reasons”.
But Ronaldo remains on the look-out for a new club after yet another rejection, with PSG and Bayern Munich also deciding against bringing in the veteran.

A return to Serie A is still an option, while it is believed it is unlikely he will head back to his native Portugal.
Ronaldo has also been linked with mega-money moves to clubs in the U.S. and Saudi Arabia.
But, he is desperate to be playing Champions League football again, and is running out of options before the start of the new campaign.
Boehly is currently taking on sporting director responsibilities after the departure of Marina Granovskaia and Petr Cech following the takeover, and is working closely with Tuchel.
