Bayern Munich president Herbert Hainer has ruled out the possibility of the club completing for a Cristiano Ronaldo transfer in future, labelling the five time Ballon d’Or winner “too old”. 

The Bundesliga champion have been in the market, following the departures of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery at the end of last season. They are surely in search of a forward to bolster their attacking organisation comprised of, Robert Lewandowski, Serge Gnabry, Thomas Müller and loanee Ivan Perišić in longer term.

Manchester City star Leroy Sane, who is currently recuperating from a knee injury, remains German giant’s top priority, but City are all set to fight to keep the forward. Manchester City is in dire need of a positive striker like Sane, as it had already lost six premier league matches this season.

According to reports in German media, Ronaldo looked like a potential target for Bayern Munich, and club president Hainer was asked to comment on the speculation at an event. He responded: “Of course there are many names in the press, which is understandable. But Ronaldo should be a bit too old for us.”

Cristiano Ronaldo recently celebrated his 35th birthday, where he was presented with a Mercedes Benz Brabus and a cake bearing ‘CR7’. The Juventus forward was there with his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez and son Cristiano Jr for the birthday celebration, which he posted on Instagram.
