My1sttoday Sports — Bayern Munich eyes to buy Cristiano Ronaldo, replacement of Robert Lewandowski. Manchester United transfer window could move from good to bad as Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked to a shock move to Bayern Munich.
The all time goal scorer has admitted that he is “not happy” with what Manchester United are achieving while calling for “higher spirit and a stronger mentality” in the dressing room. Ronaldo completed arguably the biggest transfer of 2021 when he rejoined United from Juventus for £20 million ($27m) in August.
According to Spanish news outlet Diario AS, Bayern Munich are looking to sign the 37 year old to replace Robert Lewandowski. The Polish striker has been strongly linked to a move to FC Barcelona this summer.
Fabrizio Romano earlier stated that Barcelona FC had submitted an official proposal of €35 million to Bayern Munich.
Barcelona have submitted the new proposal for Robert Lewandowski, as expected – after player confirmed to Bayern his priority to join Barça this summer. 🔴🇵🇱 #FCBayern
€35m with add-ons on the table, as @wlodar85 reports – but now Bayern sources feel it’s still ‘not enough’.

Manchester United disastrous season, failing to qualify for the Champions League could have left Ronaldo with a tough decision to make.
CR7 have never missed a UEFA Champions League and haven’t played in the UEFA Europa League, hence a move to Bayern would make sense for him.
Manchester United have focussed all their attention on the Frenkie de Jong deal, with Ten Hag making him a priority. After missing out on Darwin Nunez to Liverpool, many believed that Ten Hag would need to rely on Ronaldo for the team’s goal scoring. For that, the club will have to convince him to stay.
This news is just a speculation, nothing have been officially confirmed. So take this with a grain of salt.
