Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo, has been released from international duty.

This ensures he will travel to the UK to link up with Manchester United.

Ronaldo sealed a return to Old Trafford on the final day of the transfer window, wrapping up the move from Juventus.

The 36-year-old stole the show with two late goals, as Portugal beat Republic of Ireland 2-1 in World Cup qualifying on Wednesday night.

Ronaldo took off his shirt during the celebrations, resulting in a yellow card.

It was his second caution of the campaign, meaning he is suspended for the World Cup qualifier with Azerbaijan next week.

Portugal coach Fernando Santos was unhappy to lose his talisman, but he has spared Ronaldo the long trip to Azerbaijan – and the friendly with Qatar at the weekend.

The Portuguese FA confirmed Ronaldo had been released from international duty on Thursday – meaning he can now head to Manchester.

According to Record, Ronaldo will face five days of quarantine upon his arrival in Manchester – but it should not prevent him from making his debut against Newcastle on September 11.
