This claim was made by respected CBS Journalist Ben Jacobs.
According to Jacobs, there is no suggestion that Tuchel wants Ronaldo at Chelsea.
He disclosed this in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Saturday night.
Chelsea has previously been linked with Ronaldo, with the Blues’ new co-owner Todd Boehly reportedly holding talks with the player’s agent Jorge Mendes.
“Manchester United respect Cristiano Ronaldo’s request but a ‘satisfactory’ offer won’t just be financial. MUFC are very reluctant to sell to a Premier League rival. Club irritated by a meeting between Jorge Mendes and Todd Boehly,” Jacobs tweeted.
“Not too much should be read into that meeting, though, in this context. Told Ronaldo was discussed but he was not the reason or focal point for the meeting.
“Boehly introduced himself and multiple names were spoken of. No indication Tuchel wants Ronaldo.”
Meanwhile, Man United have been given a huge shock with reports claiming on Saturday that Ronaldo has asked to leave the club if a reasonable offer comes in.
