English Premier League giants Manchester United has terminated the contract of striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

In a statement, United said: “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.”

Ronaldo’s early departure was confirmed following the huge controversy that arose as a result of the Portuguese superstar’s headline-grabbing interview with Piers Morgan last week, in which he made a number of explosive claims against United and heavily criticized manager Erik ten Hag.

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