Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Manchester United by 'mutual agreement'
United announced Tuesday that Ronaldo is leaving the club "by mutual agreement" with immediate effect.
The announcement comes days after Ronaldo's tell-all exclusive interview with Piers Morgan, and just days before the superstar begins his fifth World Cup with Portugal.
The 37-year-old forward conducted an explosive interview on the eve of the World Cup, criticizing manager Erik ten Hag and the club's owners.
Last week, United said it had “initiated appropriate steps” in response to Ronaldo's comments.
“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."
