After a contentious interview with Piers Morgan, Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United decided to part ways
The club announced on Tuesday that Cristiano Ronaldo will depart Manchester United by mutual consent and with immediate effect. Due to his recent interview with British journalist Piers Morgan, Ronaldo has been under heavy fire. Ronaldo criticized the club in the interview for a number of reasons. He even claimed that a few club executives were attempting to “push him out.” The scathing interview appears to have played a role in United’s decision to break ways with Ronaldo.

Ronaldo had previously spent two seasons at Manchester United after moving there from Juventus before the 2021–22 season.
The Portuguese player moved on from Manchester United in 2009 to Real Madrid, where he played for nine illustrious years. Before coming back to Old Trafford, he then played for Juventus for three years, an Italian powerhouse. Jorge Mendes, Ronaldo’s agent, has had discussions with a number of teams.
