did consider making a move for over the summer, but ‘quickly dismissed’ the idea, according to the club’s CEO, Oliver Kahn.

Ronaldo was linked with a string of clubs during the transfer window as he was reportedly keen to leave and play in the again.

Despite the Portuguese legend seemingly available for transfer, nothing materialised, with the 37-year-old’s age and his enormous salary off-putting for potential suitors.

Kahn admits that talks were held at Bayern over whether they should bring Ronaldo to Bavaria, but they did not last long and they moved on with their plans.

‘We briefly discussed Ronaldo at Bayern and Dortmund probably did too,’ Kahn told German publication . ‘We also see the big picture of the Bundesliga.

‘Of course, superstars like Ronaldo are an important factor in attracting attention to the league.

‘He is one of the greatest of the last decade. But we quickly dismissed that.’

The Ronaldo transfer saga will kick into gear again after the World Cup as he is keen to move in January and Manchester United are happy to sell him if a suitable offer comes in.

The veteran has not been starting on a regular basis under Erik ten Hag and, with his contract expiring next year, the Red Devils would accept an appropriate bid for their striker, who Ten Hag admits is far from happy that he has not been playing.

‘Of course, he wants to play and he’s p***ed off when he’s not playing. Clear,’ said the Dutchman.

‘When you’re here and you’re happy, or satisfied, to be on the bench, this is not a club where you have to be, especially Cristiano.

‘He’s really competitive, as we all know. He’s not happy when he’s not playing.’
