Cristiano Ronaldo wanted to move from Manchester United to Borussia Dortmund this summer. The German club, however, rejected this possibility. Journalists of “Bild” pointed out why Cristiano thought about joining BVB in the first place. They gave several reasons.
Cristiano Ronaldo is still a Manchester United player despite trying to change colors for weeks. He was associated with teams such as Chelsea, Bayern, Napoli, Sporting and Borussia Dortmund. “Bild” claims there were indeed chances for CR7 to sign the contract with the last of them. However, Borussia showed no interest.
Now German journalists say why Ronaldo wanted to join the Dortmund team at all. “Bild” indicates several reasons.
First, Borussia is playing in the Champions League, and Cristiano Ronaldo needs her to collect huge amounts of money from sponsorship contracts. Many contracts (including with Nike) are related to the participation of the Portuguese in these elite competitions. In the Europa League, where Cristiano is to play against Manchester United, he will earn less.
Secondly, the extensive collection of “Cris” trophies lacks the Bundesliga championship as one of the five strongest leagues in Europe. Ronaldo had won titles in Spain, England and Italy, so he wanted to follow the blow and triumph in Germany as well.
Thirdly, the Portuguese star wants to play in the biggest clubs with the biggest stadiums and fan base. Dortmund meets these conditions – BVB matches are watched on average by over 80,000. people, and the famous “yellow wall” for one of the goals is known all over the world.
However, the interest on the part of Cristiano did not translate into concrete details of the Borussian authorities. After internal consultations, the Dortmunds decided to reject the possibility of bringing CR7. Not only for financial reasons, but also for characterological reasons.
Ronaldo has eight more days to change club. The transfer window closes on September 1.
