Cristiano Ronaldo To Leave Manchester United After Mutual Agreement With Club

Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United announced their mutual decision to end his contract in a statement released on Tuesday, November 22.

In a two-part TalkTV interview that aired last week on Wednesday and Thursday, Ronaldo, 37, criticized the team and manager Erik ten Hag, whom he claims to have “no regard” for.

The Portugal attacker also stated he was being pressured out of Old Trafford by United hierarchy members, whom he claimed did not believe him when he said his daughter was hospitalized and prevented him from attending preseason.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner will no longer be a part of United after they first claimed they would examine their response to Ronaldo’s remarks “when the entire facts have been confirmed.”

The club 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.”
