Wild transfer rumor: Bayern are said to have expressed an interest in Ronaldo
The transfer phase in football is always a time of rumours. Bayern are said to be planning to replace Robert Lewandowski with Cristiano Ronaldo if he leaves. Says the Spanish newspaper “AS”.
The Spanish sports newspaper “AS” is now mixing an adventurous rumor into the speculation about Robert Lewandowski’s future at Bayern Munich. Allegedly, the people of Munich should want to replace the Polish world footballer with Cristiano Ronaldo if he moves to FC Barcelona, as the newspaper reports without naming specific sources. Accordingly, Bayern have assured the Portuguese superstar that they want to start the renewed attack on winning the Champions League with him.
It has long been speculated that the 37-year-old Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United after just one season. According to reports, there are several interested parties in signing the five-time world footballer. At the end of his career, Ronaldo is said to be looking for a new challenge at a top club with great title chances. A source of the rumor could possibly be Ronaldo’s management to indirectly offer the superstar on the market or push up the price of a transfer. The fact is that there is currently nothing to suggest that there is anything to the story.
FC Barcelona reportedly increase offer for Lewandowski
However, the Munich club leadership has recently assured again and again that they do not want to let the 33-year-old Lewandowski go. “He has a contract until 2023. We’re happy if he shows up with us on the first day of training,” said Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn when introducing newcomer Sadio Mané. Sports director Hasan Salihamidzic told the Sky TV channel about the chances of the top scorer staying: “So far it’s 100 percent.”
According to “Bild”, FC Barcelona has increased its transfer offer for Lewandowski to 35 million euros. The heavily indebted club wants to raise around 600 to 800 million euros by selling club assets in the next few weeks.
