Cristiano Ronaldo is confirmed to leave Manchester United by mutual agreement with immediate effect, the club confirmed in a statement on Tuesday. Ronaldo has been subjected to intense criticism over his recent interview with British journalist Piers Morgan.

In the interview, Ronaldo had criticised the club over a number of issues. He had even alleged that a few of the club bosses are trying to ‘force him out’. The decision from United to part ways with Ronaldo seems to have come as a result of the explosive interview.

The Portugal forward appeared to be on his way out of Old Trafford following a recent television interview in which he said he felt “betrayed” by the club and had no respect for new manager Erik ten Hag.

After Ronaldo’s decision to leave the club, the owners of MU said they were ready to sell the club. This would put an end to 17 acrimonious years under the Glazer family.

US-based Glazers have been unpopular with supporters ever since a 790 million pound ($934million) leveraged taleover in 2005 burdened the club with huge debts.
