Last week there was some surprise speculation that Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo might be headed to Borussia Dortmund, after virtually every other Champions League team rejected him.

In reality, it seems like it was always being pushed from Ronaldo’s end, and there was little interest from BVB.

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!
