Cristiano Ronaldo to Leave Manchester United With Immediate effect: The English Premier League team Manchester United confirmed on Tuesday that Cristiano Ronaldo is departing with immediate effect. The decision, which comes a week after Ronaldo delivered an emotional TV interview about his displeasure at the club, was made by mutual consent, according to a brief statement from United.
The club expressed gratitude for his enormous contribution over his two stints at Old Trafford, where he scored 145 goals in 346 games, and best wishes for the future to him and his family. Everyone at Manchester United is still committed to advancing the group’s achievements under Erik ten Hag and collaborating to produce results on the field.
Ronaldo stated on Monday that the timing of his most recent remarks regarding United wouldn’t interfere with his Portuguese teammates’ focus when they were competing for Portugal at the World Cup in Qatar. Prior to the commencement of the World Cup, TalkTV released an interview with Piers Morgan in which Ronaldo discussed how he felt deceived by United and how he had no regard for boss ten Hag.
With Ronaldo’s departure from United, the 37-year-second old’s stint at the club comes to a bitter and depressing end. He scored just once in this season’s 10 Premier League games. He has primarily been used as a replacement by Ten Hag, and last month, with minutes left in the game against Tottenham Hotspur, he declined to enter the field and chose to proceed down the tunnel instead.

Ronaldo’s participation in this World Cup is probably his last; after that, it’s uncertain which team will sign him for the remainder of the season. Ronaldo changed from a cunning, 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 the first of his five Ballon d’Or awards, the Champions League, the FA Cup, two League Cups, and three Premier League championships. The United fans welcomed Ronaldo back from Juventus last year with great enthusiasm. But his second stint at Old Trafford did not prove to be as successful as his first as United finished the previous campaign without winning any trophies.

In a statement, Ronaldo said, “Following discussions with Manchester United, we have mutually agreed to finish our contract early. “I adore Manchester United and the supporters, and that won’t ever change. But now seems like the perfect time for me to look for a fresh challenge. “I wish the team nothing but success for the rest of the year and beyond,”
