Bayern Munich on Monday rubbished reports they are set to swoop for world superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
The 32-year-old Real Madrid star has threatened to leave Spain after running into problems with tax authorities.
Italy's 'Gazzetta dello Sport' had speculated that Bayern is set to swoop for Ronaldo so he can link up with the German club's former Real coach Carlo Ancelotti.
The report by the Italian daily was then carried by several German media outlets.
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'.
