The shirt he wore on the day is now being auctioned on matchwornshirt.com and the auction was set to close on Saturday, November 19.
SportBible has since reported the shirt found is the highest bidder, and sold for a staggering £39,000.
Following his explosive revelations on Piers Morgan’s show, Ronaldo now seems to have buried his Manchester United career.
Reports from Daily Star indicate United are ready to sue the superstar, and the process to terminate his lucrative contract are underway.
United themselves released a statement on Friday confirming that indeed the process to sever ties with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner had begun.
"Manchester United has this morning initiated appropriate steps in response to Cristiano Ronaldo ’s recent media interview." A club statement read.
For now, however, Ronaldo will have to put his club woes behind him as he tried to guide Portugal to World Cup glory.
