Bayern ‘plot Ronaldo transfer’ as Lewandowski replacement

Bayern Munich will turn their attention to Cristiano Ronaldo if Robert Lewandowski continues to push for a move to Barcelona, according to reports in Spain. According to Express report, the Manchester United veteran is said to be frustrated with his current club’s lack of progress in the transfer market and should it continue, he could consider his immediate future at Old Trafford.
Erik ten Hag is yet to make a signing since replacing Ralf Rangnick and there is now concern about whether United are equipped to compete with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool next season.
Ronaldo wants to play Champions League football but is prepared to stay loyal to United, providing they show ambition in the transfer window but the signs so far, are not good.
To date, there has been little progress in the pursuit of new recruits and now Bayern are seemingly monitoring Ronaldo’s situation.
According to Spanish newspaper AS, they are eyeing the Portugal international as a potential replacement for Lewandowski, who wants to join Barcelona.
The Poland international is continuing to angle for a move after eight seasons at Bayern but the club are not keen on the idea of letting him go. Barcelona have now lodged their opening offer for the 33-year-old, worth in the region of £35million.
Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic is still optimistic the Bundesliga record-breaker will stay put though following talks with the striker in Mallorca.
“Lewandowski staying? Until now it’s 100 per cent. July 12 is his first day at work, so I’m awaiting him,” he told Sky Germany.
