'Assaulted' Fan Declines CR7's Invite After Phone Smash

The fan whose phone Cristiano Ronaldo angrily smashed to the floor at the weekend following Manchester United's 1-0 loss to Everton has rejected the ex-Real Madrid superstar's offer to go watch a game at Old Trafford.

Man Utd Make Ronaldo Decision After Phone Incident?

As the 37-year-old made his way down the tunnel after the Red Devils were defeated by the Toffees on Saturday, Ronaldo appeared to take his frustration out on a young Everton supporter, who was said to be attending his first football game.

The United No. 7 aggressively smacked the 14-year-old boy's phone out of his clutches and to the floor, leaving bruises on the kid's hand, with his mother later revealing her son was left traumatised by the incident.

Police are understood to be looking into the matter, while the 20-time English champions decided not to punish the player as they believed his apology put out on social media was satisfactory.

Here are 12 players who could leave United at the end of the season in a huge squad overhaul: 

In his statement, Ronaldo invited the young boy to watch a game at Old Trafford, but his mom, Sarah, has insisted her son will not be taking the Portuguese footballer up on his offer.

"United have handled it terribly and it's just made things even worse, to be honest," she told the Liverpool Echo.

"The way I see it is, if someone assaulted him in the street and then asked us to go around for dinner, we wouldn't. Just because he's Cristiano Ronaldo, why would we do it? It's like we owe him a favour, but I'm sorry, we don't.

"We've kindly declined the offer to go to United because Jake doesn't want to go there and he doesn't want to see Ronaldo. He's made that pretty clear. They're not my words, they're my son's words. At the end of the day, this is what it's about.

"It's affected him more than it's affected me, so I have put everything to him to make his own mind up on – he doesn't want to go to United, he doesn't want to go to see Ronaldo. All that I'm saying right now is that it's in the hands of the police."
