CRISTIANO RONALDO’S exit from Manchester United was confirmed last night in the aftermath of his EXPLOSIVE interview with Piers Morgan.
The 37-year-old lifted the lid on the goings-on at United to the SunSport columnist on TalkTV.
The Red Devils subsequently terminated Ronaldo’s £500,000-a-week contract via “mutual agreement”.
The Portugal captain responded by issuing a message to United fans stating he will always “love” the club.
Ronaldo released the following statement: “Following talks with Manchester United, we’ve mutually agreed to end our contract.
“I love Manchester United and I love the fans, that will never ever change.
“It feels like the right time to seek a new challenge. I wish Man Utd all the best”.
Speculation has mounted as to where Ronaldo will end up – with Chelsea among the teams to be linked with the 37-year-old.
In a fresh twist, however, Ronaldo appeared to leave the door open to a move to Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain in a new biography.
As per L’Equipe, he said: “The door is open. Only with the Portuguese from the Paris region, the club could fill the stadium.
“I see myself well at the Parc des Princes, in front of fifty thousand Portuguese. That would be great.”
With Ronaldo now finding himself a free agent, PSG could be a viable financial option for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
Such a move would also see him link up with long-time rival Lionel Messi, who has SEVEN Ballons d’Or to his name.
The pair have scored an astonishing 1,605 goals between them.
Messi could start behind Ronaldo in the No10 position, with Neymar to his left and certain future Ballon d’Or winner Kylian Mbappe to his right.
Lynchpin Marco Verratti would man the midfield alongside Danilo Pereira.
Young, fast and attacking wing-backs Nuno Mendes and Achraf Hakimi will man the wide areas.
And Presnel Kimpembe would partner Marquinhos in protecting Euro 2020 winner Gianluigi Donnarumma.
PSG are still chasing their first Champions League crown.
The Parisians came closest in 2020, where they reached the final but lost to Bayern Munich.
With a front four that has a grand total of 2,218 goals, they’d be nailed-on favourites to win the tournament.
