"No transfer" - Journalist rules out Ronaldo joining European giants in January

"No transfer" - Journalist rules out Ronaldo joining European giants in January

He won't be moving to the Bundesliga.

Bayern Munich will not sign Manchester United outcast Cristiano Ronaldo in the January transfer window, a respected journalist has claimed.

Ronaldo, 37, looks destined to leave Old Trafford in the next window after attacking the club in a remarkable interview with Piers Morgan, which will be broadcast in full later this week.

In the interview, Ronaldo admitted he did not respect United manager Erik ten Hag and said he felt "betrayed" by the Premier League club.

He also criticised the facilities at United and claimed the club had failed to progress since Sir Alex Ferguson stepped down as manager in 2013.

The Portugal international now looks certain to leave United this winter but could find his options limited after a disappointing first half of the season with the Red Devils.

Ronaldo has held talks with Bayern

A recent report claimed Ronaldo and his agent Jorge Mendes had held talks with Bayern Munich ahead of the January window.

But Sky Sports Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg insists there is no chance Ronaldo will join the Bundesliga giants.

"News #Ronaldo: No transfer meeting with #FCBayern. No transfer in winter - confirmed again," Plettenberg tweeted.

"Many reasons but mainly the same as in summer: His age and other plans with the squad."

Ronaldo was first linked with Bayern in the summer transfer window after he handed in a transfer request.

Mendes offered the striker to a number of clubs including Bayern, Chelsea, Napoli and boyhood club Sporting Lisbon.

But a move failed to materialise, with Ronaldo reluctantly forced to remain at at Old Trafford.

He has managed just three goals in 16 appearances in all competitions this season.

His focus will now turn to the World Cup, where he will attempt to lead Portugal to glory in Qatar.
