The Bavarians have been linked with a summer move for CR7 in recent weeks.

Former Bayern Munich player Thorsten Fink has explained why the German champions must rule out a move for Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese superstar has asked Manchester United to allow his exit this summer. 

A few names have emerged as Ronaldo’s possible destination ahead of the next season, with Bayern being one of the favourites to sign the 37-year-old.

Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn has ruled out a move for Ronaldo, with Fink approving the club’s decision.

Speaking to Stats Perform, he said: “Cristiano was and still is a top player. But you have to look at how he fits your system and how he blends into the structure of the team.

“Does a player with his magnitude fit this club and this team?

“Would others suffer from that? This is what you have to think about. They have surely talked about this at FC Bayern.

“It is about the system you play, the charisma and magnitude that Cristiano Ronaldo has.

“You either are a ‘team of greats’ or you are a ‘great team’, and I think for FC Bayern it is important to be a great team and not have great individual players who, in the end, don’t have that character to win things.”

Ronaldo is reportedly keen to play Champions League football next season. However, with Chelsea and Bayern being uninterested in the move, he might have to stay for the final season of his contract at Old Trafford.
