Cristiano Ronaldo will never wear a Manchester United kit again. 

On Tuesday, Ronaldo and Man U mutually agreed to part ways — effective immediately — after the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s bombshell interview with Piers Morgan last week. 

Speaking with Morgan, Ronaldo voiced his displeasure with the iconic club, citing a perceived lack of improvement and his decreased playing time.

  • United had reportedly been exploring the possibility of terminating Ronaldo’s contract and suing him for breach of contract after the 37-year-old rejoined the club on a $15.3 million transfer from Juventus in August 2021. 
  • Ronaldo previously played for United from 2003-09 before leaving for Real Madrid.
  • In the Morgan interview, Ronaldo said he hopes Man U rival Arsenal wins its 13th Premier League title.

In a statement, United thanked Ronaldo “for his immense contribution across two spells at Old Trafford, scoring 145 goals in 346 appearances and wished him and his family well.”

Can’t Go Home Again

Ronaldo won a Champions League trophy and three Premier League titles in his first stint with the Red Devils, but his latest spell hasn’t panned out. 

He scored just one goal in 10 appearances — including four starts — this season.

Ronaldo can immediately join another club without having to wait until January’s transfer window to find a new home.
