Is Bayern Munich waiting for a major transfer to land Cristiano Ronaldo?
The last communication Bayern Munich had with Cristiano Ronaldo's team, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, was to let them know the club was uninterested in signing the Manchester United player (which we already knew).
However, Romano did mention that if Lewandowski is sold, perhaps Bayern Munich's stance on Ronaldo will change:
The last time Bayern and Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes spoke, Bayern said: "No, we're not signing a 37-year-old player." Fabrizio Romano: Now, things might change. See what transpires if Lewandowski joins Barcelona.
Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United is reportedly a target for Bayern Munich, according RMC Sport. The French publication continued by claiming that Chelsea FC and Napoli are also considering signing Ronaldo:
According to our understanding, Chelsea has obtained details on the player's circumstances, which Bayern Munich and Napoli are also interested in.
Chelsea seems to be a top contender for everyone right now, although Napoli would be spending a lot of money on this.
But Ronaldo can get his wish—playing in the Champions League—from either team.
️ Okay, okay. This has happened before, and Bayern Munich has already made an effort to quash any rumours that they might be interested in signing Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo. But according to Times journalist Duncan Castles, if the team ultimately sells Robert Lewandowski this summer, the Bavarians could still be in the running for the Portuguese star.
According to the article (as tweeted by @iMiaSanMia), a sale of Lewandowski would immediately spark interest in the 37-year-old star even if Bayern Munich has apparently put any pursuit of Ronaldo "on hold":
Should Manchester United get a good offer, Cristiano Ronaldo has asked to be given the freedom to quit the team.
Ronaldo's interest in Bayern Munich is reportedly on hold until a deal to sell Robert Lewandowski has been reached.
What does Bayern Munich have to offer Ronaldo that other teams do not? A chance at Champions League success:
Ronaldo's motivation to compete in the Champions League. He estimates that he still has "three or four years" to play at the highest level and would like to use those years at a club where he can continue to improve both his team's and his own performance.
In addition to FC Barcelona, Lewandowski has also been connected to Chelsea FC and Paris Saint-Germain.
This speculation follows a really compelling story from last week that explained in great detail why Bayern Munich might be reluctant to sign Ronaldo.
Bayern refrained from acquiring Cristiano Ronaldo for the following reasons: • Maintaining a healthy wage structure within the squad (CR7 makes about €30m nett); • Age: 37; • Bayern want pushing players and are prepared to run; • Young coach; positive relationships in the locker room.
So, how should Bayern Munich supporters respond to the most recent information? Let's examine some potential choices:
1 - You can proceed by assuming that this is illogical.
2 - You can take it for granted that Bayern Munich provided a justification for rejecting Ronaldo last week in order to put the kibosh on their illicit schemes that somehow got out. Maybe the club genuinely wants Ronaldo, but only if Lewandowski is off the market.
There isn't a lot of middle ground here. How do you feel?
