Cristiano Ronaldo has left Man United with immediate effect, after reaching a mutual agreement with the club.
Manchester United Football Club have reached a mutual agreement with Cristiano Ronaldo, meaning the Portugal international will leave the club with immediate effect.
This had been coming. The Portugal international launched a scathing attack on the club a little over a week ago, with supporters patiently waiting to discover what would happen as a result.
After deliberation behind the scenes, the club obviously decided they wanted rid of the striker, while that feeling was obviously mutual.
You’d expect that there was no sort of payout offered to Ronaldo, particularly with rumours suggesting the club could go as far as looking to sue the 37-year-old. I’d now be surprised if that happens.
It’s just a sad situation. When you compare and contrast the happiness when Ronaldo re-signed, to the sorrow we feel now, it’s pretty tragic.
Ronaldo was meant to go down in the history books as a United legend. He’s ruined it completely for many supporters, while others will always remember this little blemish on his record.
At the end of the day, everyone got what they wanted. United didn’t want the player, nor did Ronaldo want to be here. Both sides will be relieved and content with the situation, so let’s look at it like that.
The question now turns to where Ronaldo will end up. I’d be shocked if a top-tier side makes a move to bring in the striker in January, particularly after the way he’s acted this season. Couple that attitude with some poor performances and a hefty wage demand, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him head over to Saudi Arabia or Qatar.
