Cristiano Ronaldo will be leaving Man United, the club confirmed.
Cristiano Ronaldo is to leave Manchester United by mutual agreement, with immediate effect.
It is written on the English club’s website:
“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.”
The news came only days after Cristiano Ronaldo’s interview with Piers Morgan, stated that he felt ‘betrayed by the club’ and did not have any respect for current manager Erik ten Hag.
Ronaldo and Portugal are facing Ghana in their World Cup 2022 opening game of group H. Not sure if this is the best timing coming from both sides.
There have been rumours about Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes is trying to bring him back to Real Madrid. The Spanish club is now without their talisman Karim Benzema, who had to leave Qatar due to injury.
His own statement read:
“Following conversations with Manchester United we have mutually agreed to end our contract early.
“I love Manchester United and I love the fans, that will never ever change.
“However, it feels like the right time for me to seek a new challenge.
“I wish the team every success for the remainder of the season and for the future.”
