Cristiano Ronaldo is currently busy playing for his country, Portugal in the ongoing FIFA World Cup. He made a good start to the tournament as Ronaldo scored in the first match against Ghana through a penalty. However, he made headlines before this tournament by giving an explosive interview about his former club, Manchester United. As a result, on 22 November 2022, Manchester United confirmed the exit of Cristiano Ronaldo.
The official statement from the club read: “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 in 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.”

After that, Ronaldo also issued a statement. “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.” Cristiano Ronaldo concluded.
However, in recent days, reports came out that Ronaldo can join the Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr after the World Cup.

Idk why #CristianoRonaldo moving to Al Nassr is being seen as a bas thing. He's 38, people have played in retirement leagues at younger ages for lesser money.
This does not diminish his legacy in any way.
