Manchester United Handed Fresh Boost In Cristiano Ronaldo Pursuit

Manchester United Handed Fresh Boost In Cristiano Ronaldo Pursuit

Reports linking Champions League victor Cristiano Ronaldo with a possible move to Bayern Munich if the Portuguese chose to leave Real Madrid were a hoax, the German champions said on Monday.

There are a few problems that might arise over this proposed transfer, which has been talked about ever since Ronaldo made the decision to leave the European champions following tax fraud allegations from Spanish authorities.

"The whole thing is very odd because Cristiano Ronaldo is a great guy, both as a player and a person". It's also interesting to note that Mourinho is willing to swallow his pride regarding Ronaldo, a testament to just how good a signing the forward would be.

With Ronaldo reportedly intending to quit Real Madrid, ESPN FC's Mark Ogden assesses the chances of a Man United return.

"Two years ago I gave the (Ballon d'Or) trophy to him and it was an honour for me", the 76-year-old told reporters at a media event.

He returned in 2009, as the club bought Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Karim Benzema and Xabi Alonso.




Bayern Munich have derided the rumours linking them with a potential move for Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, mocking the claims as "the duck of the day". "It would be a massive loss for us; an irreparable loss", he added.

"In the Spanish league, we've had the best footballers of our time, [Lionel] Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, and we want to keep them".

"I haven't spoken with Cristiano, I learned about it because of what came out in the newspapers".

"I'm sure he will speak to us about what has happened (with the tax case), which has obviously affected his credibility, and we'll see what happens".
