Manchester United has confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo is departing by mutual consent and with immediate effect. The forward is set to be released without any payment. The reason behind this termination occur after his interview and his statements towards the club. His contract, which was worth almost £500,000 per week, was set to expire in June.
United appointed experts to explore possible legal action against Ronaldo for accused contractual breach. But their preferred option was to manage his exit, which is finally announced today. There are no restrictions on who Ronaldo can play for next under the rules of the agreement.
Cristiano Ronaldo‘s reaction to leaving Manchester United.
“After discussions with Manchester United, we agreed to end the contract early.”
I will always support Manchester United and its followers. At the same time, I believe the time has come for me to seek a new challenge.
“I wish the team every success in the second half of the season and in the future,” said 37-year-old Portuguese journalist The Telegraph Matt Lowe.

“Cristiano Ronaldo officially agreed to leave Manchester United with immediate effect,” the club announced. “The club wishes to thank him for his outstanding contribution over his two periods at Old Trafford.”
