Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has decided against trying to sign Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.

The new owners of the club have been keen on bringing the Portuguese superstar to Stamford Bridge after his agent, Jorge Mendes, had met with the representatives of the club

However, according, to reports Tuchel has ended his interest in Ronaldo over what he has described as a “spotlight grabber’ as he would rather focus on promoting a team mentality rather than a short-term, individualistic solution.

The German believes the signing of Raheem Sterling from Manchester City for £47.5m on Wednesday, suits his plan effectively.

It was also reported that the French giants Paris Saint-Germain also rejected the chance to move for Ronaldo whose chances of moving to big clubs fast becoming a debacle.

CNN Portugal has also claimed that a club in Saudi Arabia have offered to pay the 37-year-old £105m a year.
