Khabib Nurmagomedov, a UFC fighter, has said that he was aware of Cristiano Ronaldo’s sensational return to Manchester United a month ago. Nurmagomedov and Ronaldo are close friends, with the undefeated UFC legend saying that they communicate ‘nearly every day’ earlier this year.
Last month, the football world was astonished by events that saw Ronaldo on his way to fierce United rivals Manchester City in less than 24 hours, only to return to Old Trafford after a 12-year absence.
Ronaldo, who recently became the all-time leading goalscorer in international football, is a hero at Manchester United, where he rose to prominence as a young sensation and helped Sir Alex Ferguson’s team win three Premier League crowns and a Champions League.
Despite the shockwaves caused by Ronaldo’s seemingly last-minute return to United, Nurmagomedov revealed he has been aware of preparations for some time.
‘A month ago, he told me that he was moving to Manchester United,’ Nurmagomedov told reporters at the New Knowledge Marathon in Moscow.
