Bayern Munich Take Unusual Step of Denying They Want to Sign Cristiano Ronaldo

Bayern Munich have taken the unusual step of denying they want to sign Cristiano Ronaldo.

The German giants have been linked with a move for the Real Madrid man over the last few days after it was reported that he wants to leave Spain.

While there will be no shortage of suitors if that is true, Bayern have surprisingly ruled themselves out of the running to sign the reigning Ballon d’Or winner.

They posted a statement to their official website this morning, which included words from CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge on the rumour.

He said: “We’re used to being the subject of intense transfer speculation during transfer windows.”

“Normally we don’t comment on rumours, but in this case, we’d like to make our position on Cristiano Ronaldo absolutely clear.

“This rumour is completely unfounded and must be consigned to the realms of fantasy.”

So that settles that – Bayern aren’t interested in spending almost £100million to sign Ronaldo from Real Madrid.

Instead, he’ll probably stay with the Spanish and European champions or end up at Manchester United or PSG – who both appear to have the finances to support a move for one of the world’s most expensive players.
