FC Bayern has been repeatedly linked with a commitment from Cristiano Ronaldo in recent months. The Portuguese is traded as a potential successor to Robert Lewandowski on the Isar. According to current media reports, the 37-year-old superstar is actually flirting with a move to the German record champions.
Will Bayern grab the next world star after Sadio Mané? In the past there have always been bizarre rumors about Cristiano Ronaldo and FC Bayern. At the beginning of the year, the British “The Sun” reported that the Munich company would deal with CR7. According to the Spanish “AS” Ronaldo himself should be open to a move to Säbener Straße.
Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United in the summer
In recent months there have been repeated reports that the Portuguese is dissatisfied with Manchester United and is flirting with an early departure in the summer. The fact that United will not play in the Champions League next season should also not please Ronaldo at all.
According to “AS” information, the 37-year-old star has already made the decision to leave United and is positive about a move to Bayern Munich. Accordingly, the Portuguese national player can very well imagine replacing Robert Lewandowski in Munich. According to reports, the superstar is convinced that he can win the Champions League again with FCB.
The Bavarians should also be impressed by this idea. Reason: With this transfer coup you could compensate for the loss of Lewandowski in an impressive way.
Can Bayern afford Ronaldo at all?
Ronaldo is contractually tied to United until 2023. Despite his advanced football age, his market value is still estimated at 30 million euros. However, Manchester paid just €15m last summer as Juventus were keen to ditch the striker to save on wages. Rumor has it that he earns almost 30 million euros a year.
Even if a commitment from Ronaldo as a Lewandowski replacement would be a real transfer hammer, a move to FCB seems very unlikely. At 37, Ronaldo is in the late autumn of his career and would be anything but a sustainable solution. In addition, given his salary, he would hardly fit into the structure of Munich.
From a purely sporting point of view, Ronaldo would be quite interesting. Last season he had 27 goals in 39 games for the Red Devils.
