Bayern Munich reportedly regrets passing up the chance to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United during the summer.
According to El Nacional, they are currently planning to sign the Portugal international in January.
Throughout the summer, there were numerous doubts about the Portugal international’s future at Manchester United.
The ex-Real Madrid and Juventus star was linked with several European clubs, including Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid, Sporting Lisbon among others.
However, the football icon ended up staying at Old Trafford with Bayern rejecting the chance to sign the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
It was then reported that Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes contacted Bayern Munich’s board in an attempt to secure a move for the Portuguese to the Allianz Arena but they were put off by the finances involved and the age of Ronaldo.
However, Ronaldo is reportedly still pushing for a departure from Old Trafford and Bayern may be changing their stance on the forward.
