Bayern dismisses 'duck of the day' Ronaldo rumours

Reports linking Bayern Munich with Cristiano Ronaldo have been disparagingly dismissed by the Bundesliga champion.

Bayern Munich derided the rumours linking it with a potential move for Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, mocking the claims as "the duck of the day". 

Bayern's CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said in a statement: "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.”
