​Bayern Munich are interested in signing Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo.

La Gazzetta dello Sport via ​Transfer Markt believe a reunion between Ronaldo and Bayern head coach Carlo Ancelotti could be on the cards after the pair worked together at Real Madrid between 2013 and 2015, winning a Champions League title.

The move would require Bayern to step outside of their normal financial restrictions, with ​Marca claiming Real Madrid would only permit the sale of the four-time Ballon d'Or winner if they could recoup €400m from his departure.

Therefore it seems likely that only the richest of Europe's top clubs, like Premier League side Manchester United and Ligue 1 giants PSG, will be able to afford the 32-year-old, who is Madrid's highest ever goalscorer with 406 strikes.

Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho also worked with Ronaldo at Real Madrid, helping Los Blancos win the La Liga title in 2012 after several years of Barcelona dominance, and a move for Ronaldo this window could definitely be a possibility with United expected to spend heavily in the transfer window.


Ronaldo also commands a €50m per season salary, with his contract set to expire in 2021.

​Reports have claimed Ronaldo is eager to leave Los Blancos after being accused of tax fraud by Spanish prosecutors, with a source close to the Portugal international describing him as "very sad" and "really upset".

They added: "He feels he's honest, has good character and did everything OK. He doesn't want to stay in Spain. At this moment, he wants to leave."
