WANTAWAY Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo has been tipped to replace Robert Lewandowski in a “sexy” transfer to Bayern Munich.
Bayern legend Lothar Matthaus says despite Ronaldo being 37, he is an “outstanding goalscorer”, who would also bring commercial value.
Lewandowski has communicated his desire to leave Bayern this summer in search of a new challenge, with the 2021 Ballon d’Or runner-up favouring a move to Barcelona.
Matthaus believes United ace Ronaldo could help solve Lewandowski’s situation by replacing him at the German giants.
In his Sky Sports column, the German legend said: “For me, a good solution in the Lewandowski case would be: either Robert stays, as communicated by the club, or they sell him at the highest price and get a really good replacement.
“Could this actually be Cristiano Ronaldo?
“Of course, that would not be a transfer with a view to the future. He’s 37 and would always make headlines.
“I’m also not sure if he fits into Bayern Munich’s system.
“But he’s still an outstanding goalscorer.
“He’s one of the best strikers of all time and would certainly score around 30 goals.

“Refinancing through jersey sales and the like would be guaranteed.
“Ronaldo to Bayern would be sexy! At least you should think through the options and play through them once.
“If you at Bayern are of the opinion that Cristiano Ronaldo is still physically able to really help for a year or two and that you can invest the transfer fee generated for Lewandowski more or less one-to-one in the Portuguese megastar, I would think about it.”
However, Bayern are not the only interested party.
Chelsea also hold an interest in Ronaldo.
New Blues chairman Todd Boehly is a huge fan of Ronaldo and wants to make him the first marquee signing of his ownership.
Boss Thomas Tuchel and Boehly are now set to hold talks on whether to follow up with a firm bid for Ronaldo — or invest elsewhere in the squad.
Tuchel thinks Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling and defenders are the priority, having lost key centre-backs this summer.
Barca also held talks with Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, which could maroon unhappy Lewandowski at the Allianz for the upcoming season.
