Bayern Munich have reportedly identified Cristiano Ronaldo as a potential replacement for the outgoing Robert Lewandowski.
Lewandowski has been the best striker on the planet for several years now, with his goal-scoring figures utterly absurd. He does, however, appear to be keen on a change of scenery.
The Pole has continually reiterated his desire to join Barcelona this summer. Were he to do so, it would leave a major void in Bayern’s attack, a hole that’d need plugging with a big name.
According to Spanish publication AS, that name could be Cristiano Ronaldo, who is understood to have decided to leave Manchester United before the new season begins.
Ronaldo would presumably have to take a considerable wage cut in order to sign for Bayern, but he could be keen to do so in order to return to playing in the Champions League.
The transfer fee would also be relatively affordable, considering both Ronaldo’s age and the fact that he has just one year remaining on his contract with Man United.
If Erik ten Hag really hasn’t convinced him, then there’s a legitimate possibility CR7 moves on this summer. Whether that will be to the Allianz Arena is something we’ll have to wait and see.
