Doha : Cristiano Ronaldo has left Manchester United with immediate effect. Where will he turn up next? The Portu gal star has put himself on the market with his explosive pre-World Cup interview that led to the termination of his contract on Tuesday.
As a free agent, the 37 – year – old forward now has the chance to impress potential suitors and prove he can still perform on the highest level for his country in Qatar. His future may well depend on it after failing to secure a transfer to a Champions Leagues club in the summer.
Midway rough the season, his options look even more limited if he is set on playing in the knockout stages of European club soccer’s top competition when he returns from the World Cup.
The Champions League is now down to the last 16 teams, with only a tiny number of those able to come close to offering Ronaldo anything like the reported 500,000 pounds ( 594,000 dollars ) a week salary he earned at United.
