Manchester United has appointed lawyers to sue Cristiano Ronaldo for alleged breach of contract following allegations Cristiano Ronaldo made in a recent interview, and the club is seeking a speedy resolution to the matter.

This means that Ronaldo will never play for United again, and it appears that the 37-year-old has been instructed not to return to the club’s Carrington training base after attending the World Cup with Portugal in Qatar.

While talking to Piers Morgan on Talk TV, Ronaldo made a series of allegations about United. These include being kicked out by the club, the lack of empathy from the top managers after his newborn son died in April, the Glazer family, the owners of the club, not caring about the club, and manager Erik ten Hag not caring about the club. not respecting him

A club statement on Friday said: “Manchester United took appropriate steps in response to Cristiano Ronaldo’s latest media interview this morning. We will not comment further until this process is concluded.”

Ronaldo’s contract is worth around £500,000 per week and expires in July. United had no prior knowledge of the interview Ronaldo gave, who wanted to leave in the summer. He and the Portuguese team will arrive in Doha on Friday at 23:00 local time, before the team’s first practice on Saturday afternoon.

Ronaldo is enjoying his second spell at United after six highly successful years, winning three Premier Leagues, FA Cups, two League Cups, Champions League and Ballon d’Or in 2009. His individual contribution has made him a hero to United fans and has ranked him among the club’s greatest players.

Ronaldo’s return in the summer of 2021 was greeted with enthusiasm by fans and hailed as a coup by Ten Hag’s predecessor, Ole Gunnar Solskjær. But United publicly making their claims against Ronaldo seriously damaged that stance and status.

This came after his friendly match with Rayo Vallecano before the end of July and October’s 2-0 league win over Tottenham was left unfinished. Despite this, Ten Hag made Ronaldo captain for a 3-1 loss at Aston Villa on 6 November. It looks like this will be his last appearance for the club.
