Manchester United will allow Cristiano Ronaldo leave Old Trafford this summer only if certain conditions are met, according to 90min.
Ronaldo shocked the club last week after he asked to leave this summer, with the 37 year old forward believing his future would be best served elsewhere.
According to 90min, Manchester United will allow Cristiano Ronaldo to leave for a relatively modest fee of around £15million.
Any club interested in signing Ronaldo will also have to take on his wages of about £500,000-a-week – although his agent has told interested parties Ronaldo would take a pay cut.
Chelsea are reportedly understood to be open to signing Ronaldo this season as new co-owner Todd Boehly sees the chance of landing one of the biggest names in world sport too good an opportunity to turn down.
Bayern Munich have distanced themselves from making an offer for Ronaldo while Paris Saint Germain’s Qatari owners have an active interest.
Chelsea owner Boehly has already had talks with Jorge Mendes, the agent of Ronaldo, and the Boehly is reportedly ready to firm up interest and lodge a bid for Ronaldo.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich director Oliver Kahn has now responded to reports linking Cristiano Ronaldo to Bayern Munich.
According to Kahn, Bayern Munich aren’t interested in signing Ronaldo this summer because he doesn’t fit into the philosophy of the German club.
Speaking to journalist Frank Linkesch, Bayern Munich director Oliver Kahn said:
”As much as I appreciate Cristiano Ronaldo as one of the greatest players, a move would not fit into our philosophy.”
Ronaldo was Manchester United’s top goalscorer last season with 24 goals in all competitions.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner rejoined Manchester United last summer after the Red Devils agreed to a two-year deal with his former Italian club, Juventus.
