According to reports, Cristiano Ronaldo and his agent Jorge Mendes held talks with Bayern last week.
In recent days, the relationship between the Portuguese star and Manchester United has become very tense. In an interview with Piers Morgan, Ronaldo said that his club betrayed him and did not respect the head coach of the team, Erik ten Haag. According to him, after the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson, the team has not developed.
In the summer, Ronaldo tried to leave the team because he really wanted to play in the Champions League. His agent Jorge Mendes found several options for the Portuguese star. Ronaldo and Mendes had negotiations with Chelsea, Sporting, Napoli, Bayern and Newcastle. Despite all this, Cristiano’s plan to leave the Manchester club failed.
As the president of the Bavarian club, Oliver Kahn, stated, the main reason for not adding Ronaldo in the summer was that the Portuguese did not fit into the team’s philosophy. Head coach Julian Nagelsmann indicated that one of the reasons was Ronaldo’s salary.
During the summer transfer window, Bayern added the Senegalese forward Sadio Mane, and the issue of Ronaldo moved to the background. However, the African suffered an injury that seems quite serious.
Against this background, the German club’s interest in the Portuguese was renewed. According to the spread information, Cristiano and George Mendes held negotiations with Bayern.
According to the club’s football lawyer, United will prevent Ronaldo from terminating his contract and finding a new club.
In the current season, the Portuguese forward has 3 goals and 2 assists in 16 matches played with the “Red Devils” shirt.
