In recent days the feeling is growing that Cristiano Ronaldo and the Bayern They could join their paths this summer. Information from England has been talking about this possibility, although in parallel it has transpired that the new coach of the Manchester United, Erik ten Hag, wants to do everything possible to make the Portuguese striker feel much more comfortable playing for the Old Traford club. In addition, a market situation converges that feeds what today, at the moment, is a hypothesis: the formal and public request by Robert Lewandowski to leave Bayern a year from fulfilling his contract, with FC Barcelona as his dream destination.

The current European Golden Shoe, on vacation, trusts that on July 12, when Bayern will start the preseason, he will already have his future resolved, but for this it is not only important that Barça agree with the Munich club to a reasonable transfer, it is also key that the Bundesliga champion has a replacement to match. This is where the name of Cristiano Ronaldo is gaining strength in recent hours, because despite being 37 years old, he has been able to score 24 goals and provide three assists in 39 games this past season. There is a factor that may be key for this scenario to crystallize: Manchester United will not play the Champions League 2022-23 and that for CR7, at this point in his career, is a difficult sacrifice to afford. Bayern, on the other hand, starts as one of the favorites for the next edition of Europe’s top competition. As long as Lewandowski’s future is not clarified, Bayern maintains its official speech, which involves retaining the Polish striker, author of 50 goals and seven assists in 46 games this past year, but for now he has just signed another reference striker world, senegalese Sadio Mané. For Bayern it is already a blow to self-esteem to take one of Liverpool’s stars, but that feeling against the Premier League would be greater if they managed to get the Manchester United star as well, Cristiano Ronaldo. In the face of his fans. Presenting a pair of Mané-CR7 reinforcements would undoubtedly alleviate the loss of Lewandowski, even more so after the Polish international has been so perfectly clear about where his professional and personal ambitions go.
