It was obvious. After the shock statements of Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United made the decision on Tuesday, November 22 to break the contract of the Portuguese star who now finds himself without a club.
While he is in Qatar to compete in the 2022 World Cup with Portugal, Ronaldo has just terminated his contract with Manchester United, by an amicable agreement. After having strongly criticized the institution as well as its trainer Erik ten Hag, CR7 had sent a clear message. He no longer wanted to play for the Red Devils. It is now done. The five-time Golden Ball who had returned to his club heart a year ago, explained having a lot of respect for the Mancunian fans and keeping a lot of love and respect for the club. The 37-year-old player, who hardly played in the Premier League anymore, spoke about this premature departure. “Following a conversation with Manchester United, we have mutually agreed to terminate our contract early. I love Manchester United and I love the fans, that will never change. However, I feel like it’s a good time for me to look for a new challenge. I wish the team much success for the rest of the season and for the future » confided the one who won his first golden ball with Manchester in 2008.
