After a controversial interview last week, Cristiano Ronaldo severed ties with Manchester United, which left the door open for a prospective transfer to Chelsea, a rival in the Premier League.
Regarding the likelihood that Cristiano Ronaldo may make a stunning transfer to Stratford Bridge, Mason Mount has declined to comment.
The news that Manchester United is considering firing the Portuguese superstar following his contentious chat with Piers Morgan has Chelsea owner Todd Boehly on high alert.

After speaking with Ronaldo’s agent before the player ultimately decided to return to Old Trafford, Boehly formed a bond with Jorge Mendes. The 37-year-old Ronaldo will undoubtedly hunt for a new club in January, it now appears certain.
Ronaldo is presently in Qatar with the Portugal team in order to get ready for their Thursday match against Ghana in Group H.
But Ronaldo’s club future has received a lot of attention from the Portuguese media, to the point where the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has begged reporters not to ask other players about him.
That did not stop a Portuguese journalist from questioning Mount about Ronaldo immediately following England’s thrilling opening-day victory over Iran.
“Listen, I’m away with international and England at the moment so that’s all I’m focusing on,” a shocked Mount replied. I just finished playing in my first World Cup match, so I’m not really thinking about much else right now. I’m in England right now.
Within Portuguese circles, there is growing speculation that when Ronaldo’s contract predicament at United is resolved, Chelsea could be a viable choice.
Mason Mount is currently only focused on England-related events.
Ronaldo was already planning to leave United in January, but preferably not to a Premier League rival. This was before his lengthy TV outburst.
Now, though, they would likely be content wherever Ronaldo went as long as he went and as long as they were not had to fulfill the terms of his £500,000 per week deal.
Ronaldo seemed unwilling to consider a romantic return to Sporting Lisbon, which was United’s hope. Boehly reportedly wanted to sign Ronaldo in the summer, but Thomas Tuchel opposed him vehemently.
However, the German manager was then fired, and new Chelsea manager Graham Potter is already facing criticism after the team’s recent slide to eighth place in the Premier League after losing their past three games without a victory.
Boehly might decide that Ronaldo could boost Chelsea, but it seems improbable that Potter, if he is still there, would be happy about the move.
