Manchester United are reportedly considering firing Cristiano Ronaldo following his explosive interview with Piers Morgan..
After seeing damning snippets on social media earlier this week, the club is eagerly awaiting the full interview, which will be released on Wednesday and Thursday.
In a contentious interview, the 37-year-old took aim at manager Erik ten Hag, the club’s ownership, facilities, and former legends such as Wayne Rooney and Gary Neville.
According to the Daily Mail, club lawyers are investigating the claims to see if there are any grounds for dismissal based on a breach of contract..
According to the report, the club could agree to terminate the player’s £500,000-a-week contract, but Ronaldo would receive a significant payout or United would have to subsidise his wages if he moved to another club as a free agent, so this option is unlikely with the club unwilling to’reward disloyalty.’
As a result of the interview, the Portuguese international, who is currently representing his country at the World Cup in Qatar, is widely expected to leave Manchester United in some capacity in January..
