Bayern Munich sporting director Oliver Kahn has explained why they won’t sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United.
Man United resigned Ronaldo from Juventus last summer and handed the 37-year-old a two-year deal plus an option to make it three.
Ronaldo’s initial plan to take United back to the top hit a wrong turn despite finishing the season as Man United’s highest goalscorer with 24 goals.
Manchester United went trophyless and finished 6th in the Premier League and as a result, they are poised on playing the Europa League competition next season, a competition Ronaldo hasn’t played in, in his entire career.
The Portuguese forward isn’t looking forward to that though, despite having a year left on his current deal and has asked Manchester United not to stand in his way.
Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, has been talking to clubs about the availability of his client this summer and the likes of Bayern Munich and Chelsea were two of the clubs Mendes has held talks with.
Bayern are not interested in signing Ronaldo this summer and the German club’s sporting director has explained the reason why the five-time Ballon d’Or winner wouldn’t join the Bundesliga champions, who recently signed Sadio Mane from Liverpool last month, this summer.
Ronaldo wants to play in the Champions League next season, that’s something Manchester United can not offer to the former Real Madrid forward this term, and that is said to be one of the factors the Portugal skipper wants out from Old Trafford.
Napoli are also reported to be interested in the 37-year-old forward but no offer between Ronaldo and any club has been reached so far.
