Cristiano Ronaldo will plan to leave Manchester United and sign for a new club after returning from the Qatar World Cup – as Bayern Munich opted against signing the forward
Ronaldo, 37, has been intent on departing United for the past four months after his high-profile return from Juventus last year did not go to plan. Despite netting 24 goals across all competitions last season, United’s collective form nosedived, and they finished a distant sixth in the Premier League.
The former Real Madrid man was left upset at seeing his pay slashed at Man United after each member of the squad was hit with a 25 percent cut to their weekly wage due to the club’s failure to qualify for the Champions League.
Yet Ronaldo was unable to secure an exit, with no side willing to meet his wage demands and guarantee him regular football.
Ronaldo’s list of potential suitors appears to be decreasing with Bayern CEO Kahn this week confirming that they talked about signing the player but decided against a move, with German rivals Borussia Dortmund adopting a similar position.
Kahn explained: ”Cristiano at Bayern and probably also at Dortmund. We also see the big picture in the Bundesliga and an important factor in drawing attention to the league is of course superstars like him. He is one of the greatest of the last decade, but we quickly wrote him off.”
