Transfer: Favourite club to sign Ronaldo from Man United revealed
Bayern Munich is the club most likely to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United this summer, according to the bookies.
Ronaldo’s future at Manchester United is in doubt after the Portugal captain informed the Red Devils that he wants to leave if they receive a good offer for him this summer due to his dissatisfaction with how quickly the Red Devils are progressing.
Although the five-time Ballon d’Or winner still ‘has an affinity for the club’, he believes that Man United won’t allow him to play in the Champions League at this point in his career.
Due to family obligations, he did not show up for training on Monday, but Sportsmail reported on Sunday that he would meet with Man United manager Erik ten Hag when he got back to try to figure out his future.
Ronaldo has a year left on his current deal with Man United and his agent, Jorge Mendes, has been talking to clubs such as Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Napoli over recent weeks to test whether there is a market for his client, but no agreement is in place as it stands.
However, the bookmakers already have the odds of Ronaldo making a move this summer, with Bayern Munich, the current leading contender.
The Bundesliga champions are ahead of Man United’s Premier League rivals Chelsea who are the closest at 7/2 as manager Thomas Tuchel could look to replace Romelu Lukaku after the Belgian’s return to Inter Milan last month.
Bayern has already signed Sadio Mane from Man United’s arch-rivals Liverpool for £35.1 million.
But their manager Julian Nagelsmann could look to bring in further reinforcements up front, particularly amid claims that their striker Robert Lewandowski is pushing for an exit.
