Liam Brady believes that Chelsea should steer clear from signing Cristiano Ronaldo

IRELAND LEGEND Liam Brady believes that Ronaldo potentially transferring to Chelsea in the future could be a problem for Graham Potter's new side. 

Ronaldo has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons recently. The forward recently left Old Trafford before the final whistle in a midweek game against Tottenham Hotspur. 

Reports appeared that that the Portuguese refused to come on and left the whole iconic stadium early. 

Shortly after Manchester United released a statement saying that Ronaldo would not be part of squad for the Chelsea game last weekend. 

Ronaldo has since been included back into the squad for the midweek game against Sheriff Tiraspol in the Europa League. He's expected to start the game. 

The 37-year-old has been linked with a move away from United since the summer and one of the clubs linked was and is Chelsea.  

Reports have appeared this week that Chelsea's American owner Todd Boehly would like to sign the 5-time Balon D'or winner 

It has been alleged that Thomas Tuchel lost his job over disputes over signing the Manchester United attacker.  

Chelsea are unbeaten under new boss Graham Potter and with Ronaldo's ego and age, Liam Brady doesn't believe that Chelsea signing Ronaldo would be a good idea for Potter or Chelsea 

"If I was Graham Potter, the last person I would want at the club in Cristiano Ronaldo," Brady told RTE Sport yesterday 

"I think Potter has a good array of forwards there already and as we’ve seen at Manchester United if Ronaldo is not played, he can be a problem. 

"It may be that the owner, he’s an American owner and he thinks Ronaldo has an aura about him. He might be saying to Potter, ‘do you fancy Cristiano?’ 

I think he's shown in the few months there that he's been there he's well up for the job. He's got no ego. He's a very down to earth guy and he calls it as it is" 

"He seems to be giving everyone in the squad a chance and they all seem to be buying into what he's doing. It looks like he's created a really good team spirit there and the last he thing he wants is Cristiano coming in and messing it up." 

Chelsea play Brighton on Saturday, While Manchester United play West Ham on Sunday.
