Former Arsenal and Chelsea star William Gallas asked Cristiano Ronaldo to join Chelsea in January.
Ronaldo ended his stay at Manchester United after his sensational interview with British journalist Piers Morgan.
In the interview, the 37-year-old criticized the club’s hierarchy, the coach, the owners and even his fellow players and his contract was subsequently terminated.
Gallas believes the football icon could be an ideal short-term solution for Graham Potter.
The veteran saw his World Cup dreams come to an end after Morocco’s shock victory over Portugal on Saturday.
“What I do know is that Todd Boiley wanted Cristiano Ronaldo in his team when Thomas Tuchel didn’t,” Gallas said.
“Maybe it’s a good opportunity for six months to bring Ronaldo to Chelsea.
“It would be good for Ronaldo to go to Chelsea so he can play in the Champions League and it could also benefit Chelsea because they need a striker.”
