Munich mentioned as Ronaldo’s destination does not match our philosophy

Cristiano Ronaldo (37, Portugal) of Manchester United (hereafter referred to as Manchester United), a professional football club in England, is not expected to play at least for Bayern Munich, a famous German football club.

Munich CEO Oliver Kahn revealed that he has no intention of signing Ronaldo in an interview with German sports media Kicker on the 7th (Korean time).

“I consider Ronaldo one of the greatest players, but it doesn’t fit the philosophy of our club,” Khan said.

Ronaldo, who played for Juventus, an Italian professional footballer, and returned to Manchester United after 12 years in August last year, has recently been at the center of transfer rumors.

On the 3rd, American sports media ESPN reported that “Ronaldo told the club that he would like to play in the 2022-2023 UEFA Champions League and that he would transfer to another team this summer.”

He also did not attend Manchester United’s first pre-season training on the 4th for family reasons, sparking rumors of a breakup with United.

Manchester United finished sixth in the Premier League for the 2021-2022 season and did not qualify for the European Champions League.

Ronaldo has a contract with the team until June 2023, but it seems that he has requested a transfer to another team in order to qualify for the UEFA Champions League.

Munich was a team that was mentioned as Ronaldo’s destination along with Paris Saint-Germain (France), but the possibility of a move to Munich subsided with this remark by CEO Cannes.

Munich is looking for an alternative striker because of the strong transfer of goalkeeper Robert Lewandowski, but it seems that they are burdened with Ronaldo’s high salary in the tradition of a team that has set wages according to its own strict standards.

Ronaldo is on a contract with United until June 2023 and is said to earn a weekly wage of around £500,000.

The club that has recently emerged as a team to embrace Ronaldo is England’s Chelsea.

ESPN reported on the 5th that Ronaldo’s agent had recently contacted Chelsea’s new owner, Todd Boley, citing a source.

“The Chelsea owner, Boleyley, seems to be interested in the signing of Ronaldo, although his heyday has passed a bit,” he said.
