Nurmagomedov, 33, decided to watch United’s clash with the Toffees to see his pal Ronaldo in action.

And the Russian is determined to get the big United shirt after the game – so much so that he’s ready to slap one of his signatures on any Everton player who gets it.

Speaking at the Arnold Expo on Friday, he said: “Tomorrow I’m going to watch the game.

“And I said, ‘Ronaldo, you are a t-shirt, you have to give it to me.

“If anyone asks, tell them I’m going to suffocate them.” Tell him to be careful. “

The former lightweight champion is in the UK to give a number of talks, which he kicked off at the Arnold Expo in Birmingham on Friday.

And football madman Nurmagomedov was not adamant that he would not leave England without seeing a match.

He said: “It’s a big dream for me to be at Old Trafford and watch how Manchester United play with a great team. Like Manchester, Everton, a really big game.

“Tomorrow I’m going to go and I’m going to Liverpool and Manchester City.”

Manchester United’s official Twitter account shared an image of The Eagle with a personalized No.7 shirt ahead of kick-off.

The accompanying tweet read: “Welcome to Old Trafford, Khabib.”

Nurmagomedov will have to wait a bit to see Ronaldo step onto the pitch as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer named the Portuguese superstar to the bench.

Ronaldo, 36, has started United’s three previous league games so far this season, so his omission has come as a surprise.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has scored five goals in six appearances since returning to the Theater of Dreams, which Nurmagomedov knew from a MONTH before the transfer.

He told RT: “A month ago he told me he was moving to Manchester United.

“I expected this deal to happen. I think Manchester United are a better fit for him than Juventus.

“For me, the transition was not a surprise.”
