Bayern Munich have ruled out the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo according to German outlet Kicker and carried by Marca. Oliver Kahn, the club’s general manager, has said that making a move to sign the 37-year-old would go against the club’s philosophy.
Cristiano is keen to leave Manchester United and join a club that can offer him Champions League football in 2022/23. United finished sixth in the Premier League last term, sneaking into the Europa League by the skin of their teeth. They’re a long way from being able to challenge for European football’s biggest prize.
And that’s Cristiano’s primary ambition. The Portuguese already has five European Cups to his name – four with Real Madrid and one with United, from 2008 – and he wants a sixth to draw level with the great Paco Gento. His mission now is to find a new club that provides him with the platform to achieve exactly that.
