Mystery dominates the future of Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo, amid information confirming his imminent departure next summer, without specifying an expected destination for the veteran Portuguese star.
During his first season since returning to Manchester United, Ronaldo, 37, is the top scorer in the English Premier League with 17 goals, but Ronaldo does not feel comfortable and may look to leave, especially with the reduced chances of the Red Devils to qualify for the Champions League next season.
And rumors of Ronaldo’s imminent departure increased, while some linked the Portuguese star to the German giant Bayern Munich to succeed the Polish Robert Lewandowski. What are the five reasons that make the idea of Ronaldo moving to the Allianz Arena ideal?
1- Enhancing his goalscoring numbers in Bayern Munich
Ronaldo has scored 23 goals this season, with 3 assists, and despite his advanced age, the Portuguese star has shown a great ability to score goals in a difficult tournament such as the English Premier League.
Controversially, Ronaldo managed to score a large number of goals with a low-level team such as Manchester United, and therefore joining Bayern Munich makes him able to score a large number of goals next season.
2- Bayern Munich is in a state of positive stability
Bayern Munich is currently in a state of stability, while Manchester United suffers a lot after the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson at the end of the 2012/2013 season.
And if Ronaldo continues his career with Manchester United, he may be able to win titles again, so joining Bayern Munich seems a logical option, because he will be able to win titles due to the state of stability experienced by the Bavarian giant.
3- Playing in the Champions League
Ronaldo is facing a big nightmare with Manchester United as the Red Devils are far from the chances of qualifying for the Champions League, and Bayern Munich has no problem in this matter, as the Bavarian team has already qualified after winning the German League title before its official end, and he is the king of the Bundesliga without Undisputed by winning 10 consecutive league titles in the last ten years.
Therefore, Ronaldo’s joining Bayern Munich will give him the necessary safety. There is no fear of failing to qualify for the Champions League, especially since Manchester United is close to playing in the European League, and perhaps not European participation next season, if its ranking drops more than sixth.
4- Cristiano Ronaldo replaces Robert Lewandowski
It seems that the Polish Robert Lewandowski is about to leave Bayern Munich, and join Barcelona or Paris Saint-Germain, and perhaps Real Madrid.. Lewandowski is Bayern Munich’s first scorer, so his departure requires signing a striker with supernatural goalscoring abilities, and there is no better alternative to Cristiano Ronaldo. Wanting to leave Old Trafford.
5- Winning the Ballon d’Or with Bayern Munich
Cristiano Ronaldo still has the dream of winning the Ballon d’Or, despite owning 5 previous balls, but the veteran Portuguese star wants to get close to Lionel Messi’s number, who has seven balls, and perhaps equalize it in the near future.
With Manchester United, Ronaldo’s chances of winning the sixth Ballon d’Or seems impossible, but it seems different if he moves to Bayern Munich. A little work and a lot of numbers in Germany will make Ronaldo a strong candidate for the Ballon d’Or again.
