The Cristiano Ronaldo saga at Manchester United is officially over. Just a week after the Piers Morgan interview was released of Ronaldo bashing the club for their treatment of him and a lack of development internally, both parties have decided to mutually part ways.
That means the 37-year-old is now allowed to sign with any club he wants in the January transfer window and they won’t need to spend a dime on him. But, given his attitude concerns and hefty wages, it could be difficult for Cristiano to find a top-notch side that is competing in the Champions League, which is exactly what Ronaldo desires.
While he didn’t get a ton of opportunity to shine for the Red Devils this term, the World Cup is his chance to show everyone that he’s still more than capable of banging in goals. If Cristiano does so, there should be lots of interest once the festivities in Qatar conclude.
5. Al Sadd SC
If Ronaldo isn’t willing to take a pay cut, Qatari outfit Al Sadd SC would likely be more than happy to secure his services. The problem is, Ronaldo won’t be too keen on leaving Europe’s top-five leagues just for a bag of money. The competition in Qatar is far below the elite leagues in the world. Cristiano should at least be able to score a boatload of goals, but his competitive fire wouldn’t be fulfilled. That’s why this option seems very far-fetched.
