With the 2022 World Cup in the rearview mirror, the club season in Europe is back on track. Meanwhile, the winter transfer window allows clubs to reinforce themselves ahead of a challenging term, and Manchester United are taking advantage of it.


Cristiano Ronaldo is no longer part of the club, having rescinded his contract in the wake of a bombshell interview in which he blasted the front office as well as head coach Erik ten Hag.


While the Portuguese star already found a landing spot at Al-Nassr, the Premier League giants are reportedly about to secure his replacement. Their new signing is already making headlines, since he got the best of Lionel Messi in Qatar.

Lionel Messi's enemy at 2022 World Cup to replace Cristiano Ronaldo at Man Utd


According to transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United have secured the signing of Dutch striker Wout Weghorst, who was on loan at Besiktas from Burnley. However, he became particularly famous by sparking Messi's rage in the last World Cup.

During an extremely heated Argentina-Netherlands quarterfinal that saw multiple yellow cards, ugly challenges and exchanges that continued after the penalty shootout, Weghorst seemed to infuriate Messi more than anyone else.


It was in his postgame interview that Messi dropped the iconic "Anda pa'allá, bobo," ("Keep moving, idiot"), which Argentine reporter Gaston Edul later revealed was directed to Weghorst.


The 30-year-old forward made an impact coming off the bench that day, scoring twice to force the extra time—including a last-second equalizer. While many Argentines remember him as the guy who Messi called "bobo," the truth is Weghorst impressed United enough to take Ronaldo's spot.

The Best Awards are the annual recognition by FIFA to the top players and coaches in the world. Since January of 2017, this ceremony appeared as an alternative for the Ballon d'Or when France Football broke their partnership with FIFA.


Undoubtedly, the most expected prize is the one for Men's Player of the Year. That distinction has been won by stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo (2016, 2017), Lionel Messi (2019), Robert Lewandowski (2020, 2021) and Luka Modric (2018).


Now, towards the 2022 The Best Awards, a panel of experts selected the candidates and left out very important names. It's important to remember that it was a year which included the World Cup at Qatar. Read here to find out who are the biggest snubs for the ceremony that will be held on February 27, 2023.
