Ronaldo leaving Man United: everything club have said in statement

Cristiano Ronaldo has left Manchester United and here is what the club has had to say on the matter.

Cristiano Ronaldo is to leave Manchester United with immediate effect, the club has confirmed. Ronaldo has endured a rough season to date after Erik ten Hag made the decision to leave the 37-year-old out of the forefront of his mind when it came to team selection.

Ronaldo has responded with a poor professional attitude that included refusing to come on as a substitute and giving a very controversial interview to Piers Morgan, something which has seen him widely condemned.

Ronaldo has since had his future determined by United and they have confirmed their move to release him immediately. Here is everything United have said in a short statement.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is to leave Manchester United by mutual agreement, with immediate effect," the United statement reads.

"The club thanks him for his immense contribution across two spells at Old Trafford, scoring 145 goals in 346 appearances, and wishes him and his family well for the future."

"Everyone at Manchester United remains focused on continuing the team’s progress under Erik ten Hag and working together to deliver success on the pitch."
