The West Londoners are back on the course to land Manchester United attacker, Cristiano Ronaldo come next window
Chelsea failed to bring in Cristiano Ronaldo and later settled for Pierre Emerick Aubameyang who has already netted one goal on his Premier League debut appearance for them.
Aubameyang has become the first player to score for both Chelsea and Arsenal on his Premier League debut match.
The Gabonese started off the season disappointed after seeing Tuchel dismissed just after one game under his direction.
Remaining keen on seeing through his contract with the club, Aubameyang is definitely concerned about playing time which he knows Ronaldo’s arrival would definitely reduce.
Aubameyang left Barcelona as a result of the Catalans signing Robert Lewandowski despite the former Arsenal star already establishing a good scoring track in La Liga.
Chelsea tried signing Ronaldo last summer and that could have seen Aubameyang’s move not even come to limelight if Ronaldo joined Chelsea.
A move to leave the club was blocked by Manchester United who assured better future to Cristiano Ronaldo following the arrival of a new manager, Erik ten Hag.
But with the way things are moving, Chelsea are aware they have competitive advantage to sign Ronaldo after he lost his playing time at the club.
A derby day game that had Ronaldo on the bench is one that won’t be forgotten so soon and that is very bad for the great career the Portuguese has managed to build for himself.
Following Chelsea’s renewed interest in Ronaldo, Aubameyang is now more concerned about his place at the club and only a great work can see him keep his place.
The 33-year-old bagging a goal on his EPL debut day for Chelsea is just a clear signal to the Chelsea board not to lose faith in him as he can still deliver similar thing he did at Barcelona.
Todd Boehly is known to be a big fan of Ronaldo and he would clearly do everything to sign him but should Aubameyang be in a superb form then Boehly may have to reconsider.
