Cristiano Ronaldo is leaving Manchester United with immediate effect, the English Premier League club announced on Tuesday.
In a brief statement, United said the decision, which comes a week after Ronaldo gave an explosive TV interview about his frustrations at the club, was made by mutual agreement.
"The club thanks him for his immense contribution across two spells at Old Trafford, scoring 145 goals in 346 appearances
And wishes him and his family well for the future," the statement said.
"Everyone at Manchester United remains focused on continuing the team's progress under Erik ten Hag and working together to deliver success on the pitch."
Ronaldo is currently with the Portugal national team in Qatar for the World Cup.
And said on Monday that the timing of his recent comments about United wouldn't affect the concentration of his Portuguese teammates.
It brings the 37-year-old's second spell at the club to an acrimonious and disappointing end having scored just once in 10 Premier League appearances this season.
