Reports linking Champions League victor Cristiano Ronaldo with a possible move to Bayern Munich if the Portuguese chose to leave Real Madrid were a hoax, the German champions said on Monday.

The speculation emerged after sources told ESPN FC that Ronaldo wants to leave Madrid to play in another country rather than deal with what he sees as "persecution" in Spain after being accused of tax evasion totalling €14.7 million.

Ronaldo is widely expected to return to United over the coming weeks, with the odds of a move being slashed from 12/1 to as short as 2/1 in the last 12 days.

Not only do they distance themselves from signing the Portuguese superstar, they also illustrate the statement with an orange duck.

But Bayern took the unusual step of posting an article on their website to deny the rumours - alongside the picture of a duck - titled "Duck of the day".

Also, insider J Alexander Douglas, Jr. sold 22,000 shares of the stock in a transaction that occurred on Wednesday, May 3rd. Payden & Rygel decreased Simon Property Group (NYSE:SPG) stake by 9,600 shares to 84,360 valued at $14.99M in 2016Q4.

Bayern are absolutely brutal in their assessment of the Cristiano Ronaldo transfer rumours.

They said: "Conveniently in German, the word "Ente" means both a duck and a hoax, which is why at fcbayern.com we will be bringing you the "Hoax of the day" presented by Franz the Bayern duck". Digital technology means news is spread with great speed, but sometimes stories come out that are simply not true.

On the eve of the authoritative edition of "La Gazzetta dello Sport" reported about the interest of the coach of Bayern, Carlo Ancelotti and the signing of Ronaldo.

"We're used to being the subject of intense transfer speculation during transfer windows".

"As a rule we do not comment on these rumours but now in the case of Cristiano Ronaldo we want to make it clear once and for all that this rumour lacks any foundation and must be confined to the real of fables".
