Rumors of seeming adventures from Spain have electrified the transfer market. Sports newspaper wants to know that Bayern should date Cristiano Ronaldo. Does it really make sense?

MADRID / MUNICH – In the middle of the summer football slump, Cristiano Ronaldo sent love greetings from his holiday in Mallorca. At a rustic wooden table, the star appeared with his partner Georgina Rodriguez and four children while dining under palm trees.

“Holidays with Love” is the text for the perfect photo that Ronaldo’s over nine million Instagram fans love.

The Ronaldo rumor is a recent topic

The football community has also been entertained by adventurous speculation about the Portuguese’s future at Bayern Munich. The Munich leaders had barely proudly presented their new “world star” Sadio Mane as a transfer king when a Ronaldo rumor in the Spanish sports newspaper ‘AS’ about alleged interest from the German record champions in a hot summer transfer exchange led to a new emergence, first class conversation.

The newspaper claims that it has learned that Bayern wants to replace its top scorer, Robert Lewandowski, who wants to emigrate, with football icon Ronaldo. He’s 37 years old to soon be 34? If the Polish world football player is allowed to complete his required move to FC Barcelona by September 1 at the latest, the German champions will have a vacancy in the middle of the attack.

AS did not mention any specific sources, but did report on Bayern’s assurances to Ronaldo that they want to start their new attack on winning the Champions League with him. There has always been speculation that Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United after just one season. According to reports, there are many parties interested in contracting the five-time world footballer. Ronaldo is said to be looking for a new challenge at a major club that has title chances at the end of his career.



Unexplained position on Lewandowski

Could it really be Bayern? So far, the leaders of the Munich club have repeatedly emphasized that they do not want to let Lewandowski go. Even if it was said that FC Barcelona increased the transfer offer to 35 million euros, according to “Bild”. “He has a contract until 2023. We would be happy if he came with us on the first day of training,” said Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn when presenting Mane’s best signature.

“So far, that’s 100 percent,” sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic told Sky TV about Lewandowski’s survival chances. He had recently had a ‘good conversation’ with Lewandowski and his advisor Benny Zahavi on Ronaldo’s holiday island in Mallorca.

After all, Salihamidzic left open the commitment of more newcomers. “We first have to see what is possible,” the 45-year-old said. “Which dominoes fall in one direction or another. But the transfer window is still a long time coming and we will be surprised.”

No investment in the future

Moving from Ronaldo would be more than a surprise, more a sensation. In light of the economic consequences of the Corona pandemic, Bayern has repeatedly referred to restrictions on transferring spending and salaries. They already have more than 30 players on their team. Despite his age, Ronaldo is unlikely to settle last on the salary scale when moving to a new employer.

Additionally, sticking to the temperamental athletic model would not be an investment in the future, but rather a short-term adventure. So it seems more logical for Bayern to keep trying to extend the contract with Serge Gnabry (26), who is under 11 and expires in 2023. “He’s a great boy. We really want to keep him,” Salihamidzic told Gnabry.

If München’s Gnabry and Lewandowski convince them to stay, they will have the best attacking elements in Europe on paper with these two forwards as well as Mane, Thomas Muller, Kingsley Coman, Leroy Sane and Jamal Musila. And all without Cristiano Ronaldo.
