The latest rejection is a further blow to Ronaldo and his desire to leave Manchester United in the summer transfer window following reports that his agent Jorge Mendes had offered him to a number of Champions League-involved teams.

With Bayern dismissing the links to Ronaldo, the Bavarians may still need to recruit in the forward area after finally agreeing to sell Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona.

The Polish hitman has publicly declared his desire to represent the Blaugrana and a £42m fee has been agreed with Barcelona with Lewandowski set to fly out to Spain this weekend in order to finalise the deal.
