I think he's a Nike guy anyway, so even that doesn't really make sense. But Bayern aren't going to pay the transfer fee, which would be massive, or his wages, which are also massive.
It simply won't happen. Ronaldo is a very special player, one of the best I've ever seen play the game. But this is so, so unlikely. Honestly I think this ends with Ronaldo signing an extension with Madrid for more money.
This has happened before, albiet on a smaller scale. But there were reports that Ronaldo was unhappy at Madrid and wanted out before and it ended with a pay raise.
I've rated Ronaldo highly for quite sometime now and I think he will resolve our LW situation nicely. He is versatile in that he can also play backup striker to Lewandowski.
I believe he can prove to Ancellotti that he is better than Ribery and he will not rot on the bench. Those "rumors" are spread by "The Independent" which has become arguably the worst piece of pseudo-journalism in recent history.
Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo is "sad" and "upset" after being accused of tax fraud and wants to leave the club, a source close to the player has told the BBC.
I mean, from a marketing perspective he'd easily make us 3 times as much money as Lewandowski does.. I think you're minimizing what he is.
He isn't a "good player" he's one of the best to ever do it. Give up everything because of one of the "best" players? If we sign him, we have to spend a huge part of our Festgeldkonto.
Other players will demand higher wages in the next year. Players will get mad, because there is someone who earned 2x or 3x more than they do.
What happens if he gets injured? Our club has traditions. It is not a surprise that our highest transfer fee is about 41M Euros.
Why give up everything we thought was important for the past centuries, just because of one "very very very good" player? We already have one of the best strikers with Lewandowski.
We don't need to take this risk to sign a player like Ronaldo. Rather spend the money for Robbery replacements.
Of Course he has a huge marketing potential and he will arguably score more goals than Lewandowski, but is it really worth it? Personally I don't think so.
Let's go our way. Stop trying to minimize what he is lol. He is one of the top 2 players in the world who are in a class of their own.
He is one of the best of all time. He would probably be the greatest player in our history as he and Messi would be for virtually every team.
Ronaldo has scored significantly more goals every season besides this one which the difference was 1 goal. He would tear apart the Bundesliga.
There are only a select few players I would be like "alright if he's available get him no matter what". Ronaldo is one of those.
You don't get, don't you? Even if he is the best player in the next years, he is not worth it for us. It just doesn't make sense for us to sign him.
Yes, he has played in a better league and also scored important goals in the Champions League, but do you think he will score that much more goals for Bayern?
What I am trying to say to you is that he IS better than Lewandowski, no doubt. But is he really worth all the risks, money and trouble? Will he really win us that much more matches or trophies?
Would be the only reason I'd ever protest against matches. I will never cheer for him. He's talented, but he's a selfish, diving, crybaby.
He's the hardest working player in the world, possibly ever. One of the best strikers in history. One of the most decorated individuals of all time.
He's a living legend. You'd rather Coman on the pitch or Ronaldo? These things come with star players. Yeah as much as Ronaldo irks me sometimes, Ribery is arguably a much bigger asshole on the pitch.
He slaps and hits players when his temper gets the better of him. He's an unbelievable talent, one of the best in history, possibly the best player in the world, and you don't want him because you don't like his attitude?
Bayern ahead of Dortmund clash Manuel Neuer: Top-of-the-table clash 99th Bundesliga Klassiker. Well, I think its too soon to think about that.
Even Martial was deemed too expensive so Griezmann or Dybala? Anyway, for the past 4 years Juve has been doing great in CL, they just got Ronaldo, and Dybala is the 2nd earner in their team.
So I honestly don't see why he would actually want to move. When it comes to Griezmann, I like him but I don't think he would fit our playstyle and he said many times that he only sees himself in Spain.
Plus, in the TV show about France's way to the WC, at some point he says that he loves playing defensive football, so the guy is formatted for Simeone's playstyle which is great from a tactical point of view.
The only way we could get Dybala is when his cooperation with Ronaldo doesn't click but even then he is younger so from rational point of view Juve shouldn't rank Cristiano higher than Paulo in prospect of many coming years.
Uli said recently that they are currently collecting money in case they need to spend big next season. Thats the whole premise of the article.
Griezman is probably out of the question, but dybala seems like decent way to spent your big signing on. Sure, juve probably would not love to let him go.
But here are some things that speak in favor of a dybala move. Despite the support of the aignelli clan, juve needed to stretch dignificantly to make the ronaldo deal happen.
That means a they might be happy to get some cash and b they might not be able to give dybala a raise anytime soon. Next year, when robbery are off the wage list, we can make an offer thats lucrative to both juve and dyballa.
Ronaldo will occupy most of the lime light for the next years, dyballa might want to play in a team where he gets more attention.
I think bayern is turning into an interesting project, with all the young and talented players we are bringing in.
That might be attractive to dyballa. Post-Robbery, we already have two world class talents who favour the left wing, Coman and Gnabry, and on the right we only have Davies who can't be regarded as anything but a wonderkid gamble right now.
What we need is a direct replacement for Robben, and sadly there aren't many world class right wingers in the world today. Thauvin, Pulisic and Brandt are all possible options, but they won't improve the team that much to be honest.
Hazard is of course the dream, but he would cost too much and then we would have to force one of him, Gnabry and Coman to play on their worse side of the pitch.
Uli criticized him publicly. Coman can play as well on the right as he does the left and Gnabry is a backup so having Hazard on the left and Coman on the right with Gnabry backing up either of then would be perfect.
Both would be weird fits, though.
