The quote 'Sequels are never any good' is perfectly true for the second season of the Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United dispute. The events of recent days, especially the attacker's interview with Sky, ended up bringing to light the problems between one of the best players of the century and one of the biggest football clubs of all time.

The Portuguese went to Piers Morgan and opened himself up in such a way that the separation between the player and the club doesn't look surprising and after the World Cup he will not return to Manchester, and will not return under the direction of Ten Hag, whom he said that he did not respect because the coach did not respect him either. All this happens in a situation that looks like the straw that broke the camel's back.

According to the Portuguese player, they did not play fair with him, neither the coach nor others whose name he did not want to say, but it looks like a direct allusion to the managing board, that although did not want to let him leave in the last transfer market, it seems to have regretted about it and now it's doing everything possible to make the player find another destination.

Personally, I think that Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best football players there has ever been on this planet

In summer, Oliver Khan, the most powerful man in Bayern, warned that the Portuguese was not what they were looking for as a replacement for Poland's Robert Lewandowski, who left the number eleven for Barcelona, while the Germans signed Senegalese striker Sadio Mané from Liverpool. But the African champion will not provide the same amount of goals that the Polish striker has scored. And perhaps neither would Ronaldo in the case of a deal.

Of course, CR7 would command more respect than Eric Choupo Moting, Julian Nagelsmann's man of choice in attack. Although the Portuguese has not scored much this season, neither did he played much at the age of 37, almost 38, maybe he has run out of goals. We would have to see him with the ambition to prove that he is not finished, playing full matches, even if he no longer has the same pace as in the past.

First, the World Cup then the rest...

Cristiano released the explosive news in his interview when he had already finished the first part of the season and was about to gather with the players selected by Fernando Santos to take part in the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. The Portuguese captain will play his fifth World Cup and aims to become the first player to have scored at least one goal in five championships.

That is a special motivation for the player, as well as going for the only trophy missing in his trophy cabinet, after having won the Premier League, La Liga, Calcio, Champions League, European Golden Shoe, five times the Golden Ball, as well as one European Championship and the Nations League. He and all Portuguese know that a World Cup is much more difficult, but Cristiano is not one to shrink from challenges, no matter how big they may seem.

He will be at the World Cup, but his agent will work in the meantime to find him a new destination. And he may find it, because despite the controversies at Manchester United, no one can deny that he has goals and that he is a professional in every sense of the word. And he has proved that since the first time that he stepped onto a football pitch.

Mendes could use contacts with Bayern or with Chelsea, because Pierre Emerik Aubameyang is not having the effectiveness they believed in London when he was 'bought' from FC Barcelona in the previous summer market. In both teams the Portuguese would fit, also the World Cup can either bring him to the top or end up putting an end to his career.

Ronaldo crying

"I am not finished"

Cristiano Ronaldo is one of those players who are easily motivated. He doesn't need to believe much to find the necessary incentive to compete. His ego, which has helped him many times, but at other times has created problems for him, is always high. And many times he competes against himself, for some brand, to prove things or to cover mouths.

And this time he can go for it, and the World Cup is the ideal scenario to tell fans, followers and detractors that "I am not finished", "Cristiano Ronaldo will be around for a while" and "I will do my best on the field", even if he pays Manchester United one of the highest fines in recent years. That is why we will have to wait.

If Portugal has a good performance at the World Cup and CR7 plays a leading role, then there will be options, teams will appear, even if Atletico Madrid's Diego Pablo Simeone once said that the Portuguese would not play in his team because of his solid Madrid past that may change, because the 'Cholo', eliminated from Europe, with a very bad record in the Spanish League, above all, needs goals.

So far, we only know that CR7 railed against his club, that the entity is going to fine him for a million pounds and that he will not return to the command of Erik Ten Hag. We do not know anything else, because football is usually so versatile that no one can predict where the Portuguese striker will be at the end of December, once the World Cup is over.
