In what would be a shocking turn of events — if true — the Daily Mail is reporting that Bayern Munich met with Cristiano Ronaldo and his agent, Jorge Mendes, last week.

This would mean that the alleged powwow took place just days before Ronaldo did an interview with Piers Morgan where he blasted just about everyone and everything about Manchester United:

Cristiano Ronaldo has held talks with Bayern Munich as he plots an escape from Manchester United in the January transfer window. In an interview with Piers Morgan, Ronaldo claimed that he feels betrayed because United boss Erik ten Hag and club executives are trying to force him out of the club. But Sportsmail understands that Ronaldo and his agent, Jorge Mendes, met with Bayern last week after officials from the Bundesliga giants flew to England for talks.

Could Bayern Munich actually be in play for Ronaldo? It seems like a real longshot, but crazier things have happened.
