According to reports from Fichajes, Cristiano Ronaldo and his agent Jorge Mendes met with some members of the Bayern Munich board. This comes as the Portuguese revealed details regarding his relationship with Erik ten Haag at Manchester United.
The Portuguese was reportedly searching for a club in the previous transfer window but could not find a solution and opted to remain at Old Trafford even as Erik ten Haag openly dismissed rumours of his departure from the club.
The meeting between Jorge Mendes and the Bayern Munich board could begin negotiations between the Bundesliga club and Ronaldo.
Although Bayern Munich looks confident with the signing of Sadio Mané from Liverpool, Julian Nagelsmann has given the go-ahead for negotiations between the player and the club, as per Fichajes.
What will Bayern Munich benefit from Cristiano Ronaldo if he joins the club?
Apart from the value addition he would bring to the attack, Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most influential footballers in the world right now. A potential move to the Allianz Arena would dramatically improve the club’s popularity.
Bayern Munich could also increase the number of jersey sales, just as with Juventus and his return to Manchester United.
