Breaking : Ronaldo to leave Manchester United with ‘immediate effect’
Cristiano Ronaldo’s controversial second spell at Manchester United is to end with “immediate effect”, the Premier League giants announced Tuesday.
The Portugal forward’s departure from Old Trafford follows a television interview in which e said he felt “betrayed” by the club and had no respect for new manager Erik ten Hag.
“Cristiano Ronaldo is to leave Manchester United by mutual agreement, with immediate effect,” said a United statement.
Earlier this week, Ronaldo told TalkTV that younger players “have things more easily, everything’s easy, they don’t suffer – and don’t care.”
When asked if the interview would have a bearing on his relationship with Ronaldo, Elanga told Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, “not so much. When we meet, he’s still Cristiano Ronaldo to me.”
The 20-year-old added that Ronaldo had helped him both on and off the pitch since returning to Old Trafford for a second spell in 2021.
“He is an inspiration not only to me but to all the young players at United,” the Swedish international said.
“I think he said young players in general. We’re a new generation but I’m always focused on what I’m doing. But I understand him. It’s a lot of phones, a lot of technology and stuff like that.
“It’s quite easy for young players to lose focus, but I’ve always been 100 per cent focused on what I’m doing. I think young players at United listen, but I understand what he means.”
In the wide-ranging interview, Ronaldo also said that United betrayed him and alleged he was being forced out of the club.
United said this week they would address Ronaldo’s comments that he felt betrayed by the club and was being forced out only after establishing the full facts.
The club added on Friday they had initiated “appropriate steps” in response to Ronaldo’s interview.

Breaking: Arsenal suffer Thomas Partey injury worry ahead of crucial Leeds United clash
Thomas Partey will fly back to Arsenal having missed Ghana’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Angola on Monday due to injury.
Ghana manager Chris Houghton confirmed Partey, who remained an unused substitute during the 1-1 draw, was deemed too much of a risk to play during his post-match press conference.
“Thomas has some small injury issues,” Houghton said. “We felt it was too big a risk to start him.”
Arsenal are expecting Partey back at London Colney on Tuesday where they will assess the midfielder, who was accompanied to Ghana by Gunners physio Simon Murphy, ahead of this weekend’s home game with Leeds.
The former Atletico Madrid star felt something in his right leg during a training session with his country on Sunday. Sources close to the player insist it is not a hamstring issue and believe he should be fine for Saturday’s game at Emirates Stadium.
Houghton is understood to have taken the decision to leave Partey out on his own. There was no outside pressure from Arsenal, despite the presence of Murphy.
The Gunners medical team will make a decision later in the week on whether the 29-year-old can feature against Leeds. Arsenal travel to Liverpool the following weekend for a huge game at Anfield as they chase their first Premier League title since 2004.
Should Partey miss out this Saturday, Jorginho would most likely be the man to come in and replace him in midfield.

An Ikeja High Court has sentenced a domestic staff, Joseph Ogbu, to death by hanging for killing his employer, an 89-year-old woman, Ajoke John and her daughter, Oreoluwa in Lagos State.
NAN reports that Justice Modupe Nicole-Clay held on Monday that the prosecution had sufficiently proven the 3-count charge bordering on murder and armed robbery against the convict.
Nicole-Clay held today that the defendant confessed to the crime as he self-confessed living with the deceased and he was the only witness of the incident.
Nicole-Clay said, “He killed Adejoke by strangling her and Oreoluwa by stabbing her to death as defence didn’t raise objection to the admissibility of the confessional statement, there’s no doubt that the defendant confessed to the crimes.
“The defendant couldn’t give an explanation as to what he was doing with all the stolen items he was found with at about 2 am on the date he was arrested.
“This court has found Joseph Ogbu guilty of these heinous crimes and you’re hereby sentenced to death by hanging. May God have mercy on your soul.”
The convict, while gesticulating, begged the court for mercy.
He said in pidgin English, “the mama no die for my presence. I beg for mercy.”
