After joining Manchester United last season from Juventus, Cristiano Ronaldo now wants to leave the Red Devils. He is not satisfied with the vision of the Manchester United officials and is uncertain about whether they can win a trophy this season.
Ronaldo doesn’t want to waste the last few years of his career in a visionless team who can’t challenge for every trophy they are playing in. Manchester United will also be playing in the UEFA Europa League this season which may also be one of the reasons for Ronaldo’s decision. The Portuguese is known as Mr Champions League being the all time top goalscorer in the competition and wining it for a record 5 times.
Cristiano Ronaldo dropped a bombshell as he asked Manchester United to sell him if a good offer arrived. He is still in good goalscoring form as he was their top scorer with 18 Premier League goals.
Now, as Ronaldo is looking to leave United, many top clubs are looking to sign him. However, Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich has ruled out a transfer for the 37-year-old.
Bayern Munich president Oliver Kahn rules out a move for Cristiano Ronaldo
President of Bayern Munich’s Board of Directors, Oliver Kahn said to German publication Kicker, via Marca: “As much as I admire Cristiano Ronaldo as a great, his signing would not be in line with our philosophy”.
Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic was even more blunt when Cristiano’s name was put to him in the last few days. He simply responded to the suggestions with one word: “NO”.
Bayern has recently signed Sadio Mane from Liverpool and their current star striker Robert Lewandowski is wanting a move away from the German club and join Barcelona. So, Bayern may need a good striker to replace the Poland international.
Bayern Munich usually don’t sign players who are towards the end of their careers. However, many believe Ronaldo still has 2-3 years still left at the top level. German legend Lothar Matthaus also believes the same but Bayern board is thinking differently.
