Lothar Matthaus, a former midfielder for Bayern Munich, has welcomed Cristiano Ronaldo to the Bundesliga champions from Manchester United.

Matthaus thinks a Ronaldo transfer to Bayern Munich this summer would be “sexy.”

Amid worries that he won’t be able to compete for the major titles at Old Trafford, Ronaldo has already informed Manchester United that he wants to leave.

The likes of Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Napoli, Paris Saint-Germain, and AS Roma are all interested in the Portugal captain.

According to Matthaus, a Ronaldo move to Bayern would be seductive.

“At the very least, consider all of your alternatives and exercise them.

If Bayern believes Cristiano Ronaldo will be physically able to contribute for another year or two and that they have the money to do so,

He added, “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.”
