Cristiano Ronaldo will leave Manchester United with immediate effect after his contract was terminated.
United issued a statement on Tuesday which read: “Cristiano Ronaldo is to leave Manchester United by mutual agreement, with immediate effect.
“The club thanks him for his immense contribution across two spells at Old Trafford, scoring 145 goals in 346 appearances, and wishes him and his family well for the future. Everyone at Manchester United remains focused on continuing the team’s progress under Erik ten Hag and working together to deliver success on the pitch.”
It’s understood that United felt they were on solid ground in terminating the Portuguese’s contract following his controversial interview with Piers Morgan which was broadcast on British television last week.
