Oliver Khan shuts down claims Cristiano Ronaldo could join Bayern Munich

Cristiano Ronaldo won’t be signing for Bayern Munich this summer.

The Portuguese superstar finds himself in unfamiliar territory as he looks to leave Old Trafford for a second time in his career. This time the five-time Ballon d’Or winner doesn’t have many – if any – preferred destination clubs looking to secure to his signature this summer.

A big change from last summer when Ronaldo initially flirted with the idea of joining Manchester City to intensify interest from another club in Manchester; one he had a chance to build a legacy at.

However, by going AWOL on not turning up for pre-season training this week, Ronaldo risks leaving United again under a grey cloud.

According to reports, Ronaldo wants to go to a club that can compete for the Champions League, like Bayern Munich – but club director Oliver Khan has shut down claims that the Bundesliga giants will be signing the 37-year-old as a replacement for Robert Lewandowski.

Speaking to Kicker, the former Bayern Munich goalkeeper gave his verdict on Ronaldo future and Bayern Munich’s stance on his future: “As much as I appreciate Cristiano Ronaldo as one of the greatest, a transfer would not fit into our philosophy.”

This will come as a blow to Ronaldo and his agent Jorge Mendes. Now they run a risk of burning bridges at United.

Let us know in the comments section if you think Ronaldo could leave United for a domestic rival like Chelsea this summer?
