On Friday, the wild rumor that FC Bayern was working on a transfer from superstar Cristiano Ronaldo attracted a lot of attention. There was apparently more to the speculation than was initially assumed.
As the English “Telegraph” writes, a Ronaldo deal in Munich was a more intense topic.
According to the report, there should have been concrete talks between the record champions and the player’s environment. It was also about a possible change this summer.
After the consultations ended, however, FC Bayern withdrew from the exchange poker. “The Athletic” confirms this account.
The portal also reports that negotiations between the new owner of Chelsea FC, Todd Boehly, and Ronaldo advisor Jorge Mendes took place last week.
The usually well-informed journalist David Ornstein reported that there had previously been similar talks with FC Bayern.
On Friday, the Spanish sports newspaper “AS” first reported on a possible Ronaldo transfer to Bayern Munich. CR7 is said to have even been open to a move to the Isar.

“Sky” and “Sport1” also subsequently reported that the attacker was actually offered to the Munich team. However, Bayern would have refused.
A little later, Bayern sports director Hasan Salihamidzic commented on the speculation and rebuffed the United star. “Cristiano Ronaldo is a top player with an outstanding career. However, the rumor that is circulating is a rumor that has nothing to do with it,” said the Bosnian on “Sky”.
Ronaldo has been linked with a departure from Manchester United as his comeback with the Red Devils has not gone according to plan at all.
He did contribute 18 goals in the Premier League last season. The English record champions clearly missed the Champions League.
Chelsea are currently given the best chance of signing the five-time Champions League winner. Meanwhile, the Spanish “Marca” writes that a reunion with José Mourinho at AS Roma is also conceivable.
According to the “Sun”, Ronaldo’s home club Sporting is now also dealing with a possible return campaign.
