Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United are officially over!
Manchester, UK - Cristiano Ronaldo's time at Manchester United is over after the Premier League club announced the Portuguese superstar is leaving the club with immediate effect on Tuesday.
United issued a statement announcing they had reached a mutual agreement with the player to terminate his contract.
The news comes a week after Ronaldo torched the entire the club in a bombshell interview with Piers Morgan.
The club statement read: "Cristiano Ronaldo is to leave Manchester United by mutual agreement, with immediate effect."
"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."
Ronaldo rejoined United for a second spell last year but he had fallen out of favor this season under new manager Erik ten Hag.
The 37-year-old striker issued his own statement which read: "Following conversations with Manchester United we have mutually agreed to end our contract early."
"I love Manchester United and I love the fans, that will never ever change. However, it feels like the right time for me to seek a new challenge."
"I wish the team every success for the remainder of the season and for the future."
Ronaldo is currently at the World Cup in Qatar, where Portugal kick off against Ghana at 11 AM on Thursday.
