Following an explosive interview, Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Manchester United.

The Premier League club announced on Tuesday that Cristiano Ronaldo will leave Manchester United “immediately.”

The forward’s 37-year-old contract was terminated following an explosive interview in which he criticized manager Erik ten Hag and club owners.

After failing to secure a transfer to a Champions League club during the summer, it was unclear where he would play next.

Ronaldo stated, “following discussions with Manchester United, we have mutually agreed to terminate our contract early.” “I have always loved Manchester United and its fans, and that will never change. Nonetheless, I believe it is time for me to seek a new challenge.

I wish the team continued success throughout the rest of the season and into the future.

Ronaldo, who is currently in Qatar with Portugal as he attempts to win his country’s first World Cup, had previously made it clear that he desired a transfer after being demoted to the team’s bench this season.

United granted his request on Tuesday by confirming his departure.

“Cristiano Ronaldo has mutually agreed to leave Manchester United with immediate effect,” the club said in a statement. “The club wishes him and his family well for the future and thanks him for his significant contributions during two stints at Old Trafford, where he scored 145 goals in 346 matches.”

The statement didn’t show how upset United was that Ronaldo gave an unauthorized interview to Piers Morgan.

During a 90-minute conversation in which he also criticized younger players, the Portugal captain expressed feeling “betrayed.”

United announced last week that it had taken appropriate action in response to his remarks, with the termination of his contract widely anticipated.
