Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United agreed to part ways this week.
Following his explosive interview with Piers Morgan, taking aim at the club and the manager, both parties decided to end his second stint at Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, on his way out, the FA bid the forward farewell by handing him a two-match ban for his behavior after United’s defeat to Everton last season.
Ronaldo was seen swiping a supporters phone out of his hand whilst heading down the tunnel at Goodison Park.
The incident serves as a reminder to any interested party of the baggage that now comes with the forward and they will be made fully aware of that by missing him for his first two games at the club.
Ronaldo’s ban to take effect in any new league
According to the Telegraph, despite it being the FA who handed him the ban, he will miss the first two matches for his new club, regardless of the league.
Ronaldo’s options were limited in the summer and are likely to be even smaller now following a poor start to the season.
It is unclear yet whether he will receive an offer to continue playing in Europe and his desired return to the Champions League now looks like a distant dream.
Marca are reporting this morning that Saudi Pro League club Al-Nassr have made him a massive offer to join.
Although, the 37-year-old kicks off his World Cup campaign later today when Portgual take on Ghana.
The major stage in Qatar could be his final chance to show any major clubs in Europe that he is still up to the task.
