In reality, it seems like it was always being pushed from Ronaldo’s end, and there was little interest from BVB.
"At BVB, there was also a brief internal discussion about Ronaldo. But the no came quickly - and not for financial reasons. Despite all the admiration for Ronaldo, the bosses consider the risk of bringing such a world star to Dortmund far too big."— BVB Newsblog (@bvbnewsblog) August 24, 2022
There are even reports that Ronaldo was willing to waive some of his salary in order to get the move going. Seems like someone was a little desperate!
