As is known, on Monday night, in the game won against Conte’s Tottenham, the Portuguese finished as always on the bench – left the field before the end of the match.
Then on Thursday came the official communication from United about the exclusion of the Portuguese from the team for the big game against Chelsea in the championship. Followed by CR7’s Instagram post, in which there is in reality no apology, but a kind of explanation of his always demonst rated professionalism. But the matter absolutely does not end there. In January, the winter market opens and, if previously United would rule out any kind of early divorce, now the situation seems to have changed radically. According to the Mirror, following Monday’s incident at Old Trafford, the Portuguese will receive a hefty £lm fine and will be banned from training with the first team for at least three days. And that obviously leads to exclusion for the Chelsea match.
According to other rumors circulating in England, the club are considering an emergency ‘exit strategy’ given the situation. Translated: he is willing to offload the Portuguese at zero cost. A free transfer that could attract many clubs, despite the high salary.
A scenario that has something sensational, because it can open up unexpected hypotheses. But the rumors talk above all about a possible return to Sporting, the exotic hypothesis (MLS or Arabia), Bayern Munich or even Chelsea. These are the main points for now, but the situation is still evolving.
