Cristiano Ronaldo has left Manchester United, the English Premier League club confirmed on Tuesday.

United said in a brief statement that the decision, taken by mutual consent, came a week after Ronaldo delivered an angry TV interview about his unhappiness at the club.

“The club appreciates him for his enormous contribution during two spells at Old Trafford, scoring 145 goals in 346 games, and wishes him and his family well for the future,” the club said in a statement.

“Everyone at Manchester United is committed to continue the team’s growth under Erik ten Hag and to working together to achieve success on the field.”

Cristiano Ronaldo is presently with the Portugal national team in Qatar for the World Cup, and he stated on Monday that the timing of his recent statements regarding United will not interfere with his Portuguese colleagues’ attention.

Cristiano Ronaldo confessed to Piers Morgan for TalkTV

Ronaldo confessed to Piers Morgan for TalkTV soon before the start of the World Cup how he thought United had deceived him and how he has no regard for boss ten Hag.

Ronaldo slammed the club in a number of ways during the interview. He even claimed that some club executives are attempting to ‘push him out.’ United’s decision to cut ways with Ronaldo appears to have been influenced by the shocking comments.

Following a recent television interview in which he stated that he felt “betrayed” by the club and had little regard for new manager Erik ten Hag, the Portugal forward appeared to be on his way out of Old Trafford.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s second stint at Manchester United has come to an end.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit from Manchester United brings the 37-year-second old’s term at the club to an end, having scored only once in 10 Premier League outings this season.

Ten Hag has mostly used him as a substitute, and he refused to play against Tottenham Hotspur last month, instead going down the tunnel with minutes remaining.

This is likely to be Ronaldo’s final World Cup appearance, and it is uncertain which team will sign him for the second half of the season after that.

Cristiano Ronaldo turned himself from a clever, skilled winger to one of the top players in the world when he initially joined United in 2003.

Before joining Real Madrid in 2009, he won three Premier League titles, the FA Cup, two League Cups, the Champions League, and the first of his five Ballon d’Or awards.

Ronaldo’s return to United from Juventus last year was met with great enthusiasm by the club’s fans, but his second stint at Old Trafford failed to equal the success of his first, with United finishing the season without a trophy.

“Following discussions with Manchester United, we mutually agreed to terminate our contract early,” Ronaldo said in a statement.

“I adore Manchester United and its supporters, and that will never change.” However, it appears that the time has come for me to seek a new challenge.

“I wish the team the best of luck for the rest of the season and in the future.”

Manchester United stated in their statement:

“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.”

Cristiano Ronaldo also released a statement on the subject:

Ronaldo was at Manchester United for the second time, having joined from Juventus prior to the start of the 2021-22 season. He first left Manchester United in 2009 to join Real Madrid, where he spent the next nine years of his career. He subsequently spent three years with Juventus before returning to Manchester United.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, has been in talks with a number of clubs, although it is unclear which club the 37-year-old would join next.
