Manchester United legend Teddy Sheringham has warned Chelsea owner Todd Boehly against signing former Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 37 year old Portugal international reached an agreement with Manchester United to terminate his contract this week.

In an interview with BoyleSports, Sheringham explained why Todd Boehly and Chelsea should avoid bidding for Ronaldo.

He said: “I don’t think Ronaldo is a good move for Graham Potter at all. Not so early in his Chelsea career to be dictated who comes in. He obviously wants to have a full say on what happens at the club and that would send out the wrong message straight away.”

Sherringham did admit however that anything can happen: “Football surprises you every day and you don’t know what could happen next, so who knows?”

Ronaldo is back in action for Portugal against Uruguay on Monday.
