Ferdinand, who played with Ronaldo during his time with the Red Devils, was covering the World Cup when he found out about the news.

He said on BBC: “I think both parties will be delighted now. He has obviously done that interview with the mindset that he wanted to get out of the club.

“He wasn’t happy and made it very clear.

“Erik ten Hag has got what he wanted as well in this situation.

“So both parties are happy, so move on and the next chapter for Cristiano Ronaldo.”

When asked what Ronaldo’s next step will be, Ferdinand added: “I don’t know, we were talking about it here.

“It depends on what the motivation is.

“Is it the Champions League? is it money? Is it to just continue playing somewhere with a nice climate?

“This will be panned out and going on behind the scenes, but we will find out I am sure in due course.”

Piers Morgan has urged Premier League table toppers Arsenal to sign the attacker on Twitter.

Although there will likely be competition for his signature as he has been previously linked with moves to Chelsea, Sporting Lisbon and the MLS.
