Bayern Munich manager Oliver Kahn has reiterated his earlier stance that the German club were not interested in making a bid for Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo.
Kahn feels the 37-year-old Portugal international doesn’t fit the club’s ethos, journalist says fabrice romano.
Speaking to journalist Frank Linkesch, Bayern Munich manager Oliver Kahn said:
”Even though I appreciate Cristiano Ronaldo as one of the greatest players, a transfer would not fit into our philosophy”.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has joined Manchester United after the Premier League club agreed a two-year contract with his former Italian club Juventus. Ronaldo was the Red Devils’ top scorer last season which saw them finish sixth in the table. He scored 24 goals in 38 appearances in all competitions as United finished without a trophy.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fired from his managerial position midway through last season. Ralf Rangnick was given the role of interim manager.
The English club have signed former Ajax manager Erik ten Hag as their new full-time manager from the 2022-23 season in a bid to overhaul the entire squad.
Despite alleged misgivings from several football pundits, the Dutch manager has made it clear that Ronaldo fits into his plans at Old Trafford and will be a key player in the new season.
Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo is said to be unhappy with United’s ambitions and their inability to sign key players in the transfer window ahead of the new season. He reportedly told the club to let him go if a suitable offer came along.
According to The Express, Chelsea, Sporting Lisbon and Bayern Munich are Ronaldo’s new destinations. Chelsea want a seasoned striker who can score goals week in and week out, while Bayern Munich will be looking to replace Robert Lewandowski if and when the Polish superstar decides to leave.
