Chelsea are currently not prioritising the signing of Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in the winter transfer window, according to acclaimed transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
Ronaldo, 37, has been the talk of the town since the start of the summer transfer window. He expressed his desire to depart United to play in the UEFA Champions League. However, no transfer materialised.
Meanwhile, the Blues tried to rope in the five-time Ballon d’Or winner to Stamford Bridge earlier this summer. However, former manager Thomas Tuchel turned down the opportunity as he felt that the Portuguese didn’t fit into his tactical system, as per Mirror.
Speaking on Caught Offside, Romano said that the Blues are now focussed on appointing a new sporting director. He added that Ronaldo is now concentrating on life at Old Trafford. He said:

He added:
Under new Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag, the veteran striker has started just one of six Premier League games. He has been demoted to the bench, with Marcus Rashford leading the line.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea have shortlisted three unnamed candidates for the role of sporting director.
In his column for Caught Offside, Romano said the names of the three candidates are ‘secret’.
He added:
Meanwhile, Blues owner Todd Boehly has held talks with PSG advisor Luis Campos, as per The Times. The new ownership is keen to appoint a new sporting director before the winter transfer window.
