Manchester United are awaiting the full details of Cristiano Ronaldo’s bombshell interview before reacting but terminating the 37-year-old’s contract is one of the options they are exploring.
In an interview with Piers Morgan, Ronaldo launched a staggering attack on the Red Devils for “betraying” him. He went on to disparage Erik ten Hag, saying that he has “no respect” for the new gaffer.
If a player says out loud that he has no respect for his current manager, he has to leave. There is no other way out.
Ten Hag has had full backing from United’s hierarchy until this point. If it is a battle between the manager and the player, the club will surely back the manager.
With the club football on hiatus due to the upcoming World Cup, the Red Devils have time to decide what should be their reaction.
Ronaldo is currently earning around a bumper £ 560,000 a week, making him the most expensive player in the English league.
Paying the remaining salary while terminating his contract will be a huge expense for United, and they would want to avoid that. And, rightly so.
The five-time Ballon D’Or winner is currently on international duty at the World Cup. His agent Jorge Mendes will be working hard to find him a Champions League club in January.
