Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo has now chosen to join Bayern Munich this summer and Jorge Mendes is now engineering his move to the Bavarian side.
Marco Conterio has reported in detail about the situation of Ronaldo. It is stated that the denial from Bayern about their interest in Ronaldo and United’s PR line about the fact that the player is not for sale is a strategy adopted by both clubs to stay under the radar.
Mendes is said to have been negotiating with Bayern for a while now and the situation is strongly linked with that of Robert Lewandowski, who is being linked with a move to Barcelona and he wants the move as well. And that is why a meeting took place between Mendes and Barca, as the agent tried to make sure that the Polish striker indeed ends up at Nou Camp.
The profile of Ronaldo has now convinced Bayern, who have seen the likes of Erling Haaland and Sebastien Haller get snapped up by Man City and Borussia Dortmund. They like Victor Osimhen, whose price tag deters the Bavarian side. So Ronaldo now remains an option for the club, but it is all linked to the departure of Lewandowski.
It is stated that the meeting between Mendes and Barca was a step in the right direction, with the agent said to be ‘weaving the canvas’ for Ronaldo’s move to the Allianz Stadium.
