Chelsea owner Todd Boehly recently held a surprise meeting with the agent of Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

Boehly met super agent Jorge Mendes in Portugal,  but nothing could be said about their meeting.

It’s yet to be known what transpired in the meeting between Boehly and Jorge Mendes, but rumours started to go round that they talked about the possibility of the Portugal legend, Ronaldo making a move to Stamford Bridge.

Former Chelsea right-back Glen Johnson has said that he does not believe the 37-year-old forward would be a good signing in footballing terms, but he would fit Boehly’s marquee signing criteria perfectly, with his commercial value.

“If he goes to Chelsea then he’d burn his bridges at Manchester United,” Johnson told GGRecon.

“From Chelsea’s perspective, he’s a massive brand and he may be expensive, but you’d probably make that money back in two weeks through shirt sales.

“He may cost a fortune, but the club would probably make more by just having him. Signing Ronaldo is like signing a commercial deal.

“I don’t think Ronaldo can change Chelsea’s fortunes as a player now, but I think having him in the dressing room would.

“On the pitch now, he’s not the Ronaldo we all want to see, but him being in the dressing room will get another 5% out of everyone around him.”
