Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has revealed the 33-year-old’s age put the Bundesliga giants off making a move for the forward.

When asked why Bayern never made a move for Ronaldo, president Hoeness told Bild: “We would have paid that amount for him with our eyes closed if he was 24 years old but he’s 33.”
