Bayern Munich have confirmed they will not sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United after reaching an agreement to sell Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona.

After several weeks of negotiations, the Spanish club have finally secured a €50m (£42m) deal to bring Lewandowski to the Camp Nou.

Bayern managing director Oliver Kahn said to Bild on Saturday: “In the end, Barcelona offered a sum that made the sale absolutely worthwhile for us.

“We’ve also been very successful on the transfer market recently and in Sadio Mane we’ve signed an absolutely world-class player for the offensive. So now we have an agreement with Barcelona.

‘So far only verbally, the contract is still pending.’

Bayern, who already signed Said Mane from Liverpool for £35m this summer, are one of the few clubs in Europe who could afford a move for Ronaldo.

The 37-year-old has hinted to Manchester United that he wants to leave this summer to join a club that could potentially win the Champions League this season.

But Bayern’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic told Sport1 on Saturday that a move for Ronaldo was not being considered.

“I have great respect for Cristiano Ronaldo, his achievements and his career,” said Salihamidzic.

“But that was and is not an issue for us.”

Earlier this week, Chelsea also ruled themselves out of the race to sign Ronaldo.
