Following his controversial departure from Manchester United, the 37-year-old superstar has reportedly agreed a £173 million (S$283.7 million) a year deal with Al Nassr on a 2.5 year contract.

The total amount of money that he stands to make from his deal, stands at S$709.25 million.

Recap

Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo is set to leave the club with immediate effect, after both Man United and the player agreed to terminate his contract following his explosive interview with Piers Morgan where he claimed the club betrayed him.

The player had called out the club for lacking empathy after his newborn son died during childbirth, and added that he was being forced out of the club by the manager and the club executives.

Man United had initially sought legal advice to explore what kind of actions they could take against Ronaldo for allegedly breaching his contract with the interview, but they have since decided to terminate his £500k/week contract instead.

Ronaldo is now effectively a free agent.

Man United’s statement

Cristiano Ronaldo is to leave Manchester United by mutual agreement, with immediate effect.

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.

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’s response

Following conversations with Manchester United we have mutually agreed to end our contract early.

I love Manchester United and I love the fans, that will never ever change. However, it feels like the right time for me to seek a new challenge.

I wish the team every success for the remainder of the season and for the future.
