Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn has ruled out a move for Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo as it would ‘not fit the club’s philosophy’.
Ronaldo has asked Manchester United to consider any suitable offers that come in for him this summer, with a select few clubs capable of completing such a deal.
One of those would have been Bayern Munich who could lose talismanic striker Robert Lewandowski this summer, but their outspoken hierarchy has moved quickly to pour cold water on rumours linking the Portuguese icon with a move to the Allianz Arena.
“As highly as I rate Cristiano Ronaldo as one of the greatest, a transfer wouldn’t be a fit with our philosophy,” CEO Kahn told a German publication.
Kahn didn’t expand on exactly what he meant by that, but his comments are pretty definitive.
That essentially leaves Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain as the only two European clubs who may be willing and able to pull off a move for Ronaldo.Indeed, there are reports that the former are preparing a bid for the 37-year-old forward, with new owner Todd Boehly enticed by the opportunity to sign a global superstar.
