Chelsea and Newcastle United are no longer interested in agreeing on a deal for Cristiano Ronaldo, who has left Manchester United.

As per Daily Telegraph, Chelsea and Newcastle United do not seem to have any intention to bring in Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese forward is currently a free agent and will be seen donning a new jersey after the World Cup.

Manchester United took the occasion to announce Ronaldo’s imminent departure on Tuesday, and the player also has not received a payout. He was entitled to earn almost £16 million going by his current wages, but he was so adamant to leave the club that he chose to forego the entire amount.

Ronaldo kept no hold of himself as he gave a no-nonsense interview to Piers Morgan just after Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Fulham. That incident shook the core of the foundation which Erik ten Hag has built by shrugging off all the difficulties since his arrival from Ajax.

The Manchester United manager did not want any hassles on his preparation for the remainder of the season. So ten Hag made it clear he does not want the 37-year-old to be further involved in the first-team operation.

There has also been a sense of approval among the Manchester United players, who seem to be quite enjoying ten Hag’s tactical revolution this season. Players like Marcus Rashford and Diogo Dalot have enjoyed a stellar season so far, and Manchester United could relaunch their top-four mission after the conclusion of the World Cup.

Chelsea had been linked with a possible move for the disgraced 37-year-old striker in the summer. But former manager Thomas Tuchel did not show any intention to sign Ronaldo, and current manager Graham Potter does not want to get into too many distractions either.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United’s recent takeover may be deemed as a suitable atmosphere for the former Real Madrid striker. But the Magpies will not entertain any kind of advances from his entourage.

Newcastle have been quite terrific under the tutelage of Eddie Howe and should continue their journey when the Premier League resumes in December. A move to an English club could thus be impossible for the 37-year-old who is still interested in competing in a top league.
