The Portuguese legend has been an avid scorer in the Champions League football, and so everyone wants to play their expert field, after the last season, where the player himself had a good individual season, the team collectively performed down the mark, and failed to qualify for this year’s Champions League.

Creating a void in the player’s life, as it’s the last couple of years for the man, the legend won’t be playing for long, creating a wish in his heart to leave, links to Chelsea and several other clubs were evident, but was natural for someone at his level to tolerate the poor performances consistently of the Red Devils.

The player’s stay at the club, doesn’t have his heart here, the least playing minutes are troubling, and the forced stay has let his confidence down, however, the man is a goal threat wherever he stands, and being that he has achieved greatness earlier and could do so again if dealt with well.
