The 37-year-old missed out on a move to the Blues in the summer following interest from new co-owner and interim sporting director Todd Boyle.

However, now that Ronaldo is a free agent, the links are starting to spread again, with Chelsea managing to defeat the Portuguese without the hassle of signing up for another team. Meanwhile, the veteran striker is playing for his country in the World Cup.
