While dreaming of continuing his footballing adventure at the highest level, Cristiano Ronaldo had to land in Saudi Arabia after terminating his contract with Manchester United. However, it’s not that interests in Europe haven’t surfaced like Bayern Munich, who just explained the reasons behind the failed deal.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who celebrates his 38th birthday on February 5, could have been currently in the colors of Bayern Munich rather than Al Nassr with whom he opened his goal counter last Thursday in the league. The Portuguese star was indeed offered to the Bavarian giant. But the transfer failed for several reasons revealed during an interview by Hasan Salihamidzic, the sports director of Bayern Munich.
Basically, in an interview with Bild, Hasan Salihamidzic has confirmed that he had discussions with Jorge Mendes for Real Madrid’s all-time top scorer. He indeed argued that:We discussed Ronaldo. But I clearly told Jorge Mendes (his former agent) that it was not feasible for us. The overall package does not suit Bayern, neither financially nor sportingly. It does not correspond to our philosophy. Even if we sometimes have the possibility of bringing in a high-level player, we must know how to finance the operation.“, can we read.
