It’s disastrous for Broja. He would have viewed Chelsea’s empty striker position as an opportunity to consolidate his spot at the west London club.
This season, the Blues have struggled with center-forwards, with Kai Havertz and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both underwhelming for Graham Potter’s side. It will be intriguing to see if a Ronaldo deal is pursued. In the summer, Chelsea was connected with the Portuguese superstar, but he ultimately stayed at Old Trafford. Realistically, Chelsea will need to sign a new striker in the summer, but Ronaldo might be a temporary solution.
