Breaking: Manchester United confirm Cristiano Ronaldo has left the club

Manchester United have announced that Cristiano Ronaldo will leave the club with immediate effect following his bombshell interview with Piers Morgan.

The decision was made by the club following Ronaldo’s interview with Piers Morgan.

The statement reads: “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.”

United believed Ronaldo had violated his terms of employment with his criticism of the club’s US owners, manager Erik ten Hag, the club’s facilities, his team-mates and former Red Devils players including Wayne Rooney and Gary Neville. 

The announcement comes just two days before Ronaldo kicks off Portugal’s World Cup finals campaign against Ghana.
