According to our favorite source of reliable news, Ronaldo would prefer that Real Madrid not sign Robert Lewandowski (let alone Harry Kane!). Ronaldo can simply play as Real Madrid’s no. 9. After all, he is equally capable of not scoring any goals in the Champions League semifinals.
Ronaldo would “accept” it, though, if the Galacticos added Mo Salah to their galaxy, since he plays on the wing. Ronaldo is supposedly suspicious of Neymar, but who isn't at this point? Ronaldo also supposedly has wonderful ideas about the rest of Real’s lineup. Heck, why not make him the first player-general-manager in World Soccer? Wouldn’t that be swell?

against for FC Köln yesterday. Yay?

RB Leipzig coach Ralph Hasenhüttl recently confirmed on ZDF that Bayern had contacted him about the coaching job in January. The admission occurred as Hasenhüttl was discussing his own uncertain future with Leipzig:
The fact of the matter is that as of today I have not spoken with any other club, with the exception that I had loose contact with Bayern Munich.
The contact had occurred in January, long before Bayern eventually signed Eintract coach Niko Kovac. Hasenhüttl elaborated,
I said that I can't imagine that I'm a first-choice solution for Bayern Munich, because I lack international experience.
But Hasenhüttl unambiguously said, Ja!, Bayern wanted to sign him.
