How Cristiano Ronaldo Indirectly Played A Role In Chelsea’s Sacking Of Thomas Tuchel
Relevo asserts that Cristiano Ronaldo had a minor influence on Chelsea’s decision to fire Thomas Tuchel.

The third and most important factor, respectively, according to The Daily Telegraph, is Tuchel’s quarrel with Boehly. The Telegraph claims that Tuchel was not pleased with the increased responsibilities Boehly assigned him during the summer transfer window, including the acquisition, sale, and negotiation of players.
Furthermore, according to Relevo, there were disagreements between the two on the purchase of specific players, with Cristiano Ronaldo being the most well-known of these.
Matteo Moretto claimed that Ronaldo and Manchester United had spoken about everything before Boehly and the player came to an agreement to purchase Ronaldo. This came about as a result of a meeting that was widely reported between Boehly and Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes.
The contract was ready to be signed, but Tuchel caused a disturbance by demanding that Ronaldo not be bought. The deal fell through as a result, and Tuchel was adamant about signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as his new striker. The entire incident exacerbated the animosity between Boehly and Tuchel, which had been building all summer and had eventually led to the German’s dismissal.
