The English Premier League team Manchester United confirmed on Tuesday that Cristiano Ronaldo is leaving with immediate effect.
A week after Cristiano Ronaldo delivered an emotional TV interview about his unhappiness at the club, United confirmed in a terse statement that the decision was reached by mutual consent.
The club thanked him for his contribution and wished him the best for the future.
Despite some setbacks, Manchester United is continuing to work hard to achieve their goals.
They are determined to turn things around and are confident they can do so with their current squad.
Despite this apparent distraction, Ronaldo is still focused on the task at hand and is determined to help Portugal win the Fifa World Cup Qatar 2022.
Ronaldo’s departure from United puts his second stint at the club to a close. He has scored just once in 10 Premier League games this season and his main role under Ten Hag has been as a replacement.
Last month, against Tottenham Hotspur, he refused to enter the field of play and instead chose to leave through the tunnel with some time still in the game.
Cristiano Ronaldo is most certainly going to make his final World Cup appearance in this one, and it’s not yet known which club will sign him for the second half of the season after that.
Cristiano Ronaldo developed from a skilled winger to one of the best players in the world when he first joined United in 2003.
Before transferring to Real Madrid in 2009, he won five Ballon d’Or awards, the Champions League, the FA Cup, two League Cups, and the first of his three Premier League championships.
Ronaldo’s return to United from Juventus was welcomed with great excitement by the club’s supporters last year, but his second stint at Old Trafford did not prove to be as successful as his first because United finished the previous season without winning any trophies.
We have mutually decided to terminate our contract early, Ronaldo said in a statement after speaking with Manchester United.
It will never change that I love Manchester United and I love the supporters. However, it seems like the ideal time for me to look for a fresh challenge.
“I wish the team nothing but success for the rest of the year and beyond,”
