It has been reported that Bayern Munich met with Cristiano Ronaldo and his agent, Jorge Mendes, last week. This would mean that the alleged powwow took place just days before Ronaldo did an interview with Piers Morgan where he blasted just about everyone and everything about Manchester United. Cristiano Ronaldo has held talks with Bayern Munich as he plots an escape from Manchester United in the January transfer window. In an interview with Piers Morgan, Ronaldo claimed that he feels betrayed because United boss Erik ten Hag and club executives are trying to force him out of the club. But Sportsmail understands that Ronaldo and his agent, Jorge Mendes, met with Bayern last week after officials from the Bundesliga giants flew to England for talks.
Manchester United will consider tearing up Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract in the January transfer window – as long as he does not demand a pay-off for the remainder of his deal.
Chelsea’s decision to sack Thomas Tuchel, rather than placing him on gardening leave, means the German is preparing to leave England in December, even though two of his former Chelsea staff can stay in the country. The Rangers board are still to discuss Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s future as the under-fire boss flies back to the Netherlands.
