Cristiano Ronaldo speculation is the ‘hoax of the day’ – Bayern

Published

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has dismissed reports linking Cristiano Ronaldo with the Bundesliga champions as “completely unfounded,” while suggesting the rumours “must be consigned to the realms of fantasy.”

Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport reported at the weekend that Bayern were interested in signing Ronaldo, 32, from Madrid. The move would see the Portugal international link up with his former boss Carlo Ancelotti, who coached him at Madrid between 2013 and 2015.

The speculation emerged after sources told ESPN FC that Ronaldo wants to leave Madrid to play in another country rather than deal with what he sees as “persecution” in Spain after being accused of tax evasion totalling €14.7 million.

However, Bayern have rubbished the report, labelling it as the “hoax of the day” on their official website.

Rummenigge added: “We’re used to being the subject of intense transfer speculation during transfer windows. Normally we don’t comment on rumours, but in this case, we would like to make our position on Cristiano Ronaldo absolutely clear: This rumour is completely unfounded and must be consigned to the realms of fantasy.”

Ronaldo, who is currently playing for Portugal in the Confederations Cup in Russia, scored five goals over two legs as eventual winners Madrid dumped Bayern out of the Champions League at the quarterfinal stage in April.

Messi an alien that should live in sky not earth – Montella

Sevilla manager, Vincenzo Montella has described Barcelona star, Lionel Messi as an ‘alien’ who is supposed to be living in the sky rather than on the earth.

He stated this ahead of Sevilla clash with Barcelona in the Copa del Rey finals at Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday night.

Montella, who said Messi’s talents are not of this world believes his Sevilla side have a chance against Barcelona in today’s final.

“Barcelona are a great team, as we have seen in La Liga,” Montella, who joined Sevilla in December replacing Eduardo Berizzo told reporters.

“They have almost won it, so they are favourites.

“But we have to think about ourselves and our attitude and quality and skills. We have to think how to face Barcelona that way.

“I also think that Messi is an alien. I hope he will be that high tomorrow instead of on the Earth. We have to try to avoid him receiving the ball.

“We’ve seen that it is possible to win against Barcelona, but for this to happen we have to be focused throughout the whole game and not lose concentration at any moment.

“I’m hoping for a balanced game, one that will be decided by smaller details, keeping us in the running.”

The kick off time for the match is 8:30pm.
