Ronaldo would undoubtedly face backlash from United fans if he were to join one of their rivals for the top four. It would add fuel to the fire for supporters who have already changed their tune on him following the interview.
Coincidentally, the trip to Stamford Bridge was the match Ronaldo missed earlier this season after being given a brief suspension by manager Erik ten Hag. After refusing to come on as a late substitute in the win over Tottenham, he was left out of the squad that travelled to play Potter’s side.
Ronaldo’s Portugal have already qualified for the round of 16 at the World Cup in Qatar ahead of their final game in Group H. They will confirm top spot if they avoid defeat against South Korea on Friday afternoon, though Ronaldo is a doubt having missed training on Wednesday.
