Man Utd to cancel Ronaldo’s contract without payoff
Manchester United are set to cancel Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract without any payoff, according to SportsMail.
The Premier League club has begun the legal process of tearing up Ronaldo’s £500,000-a-week contract without paying him a penny of the £16 million he would have earned until it expired in June.

United said earlier in the week that they would consider their response once the full facts were established and issued a statement on Friday.

The Glazers, Chief Executive Richard Arnold, Football Director John Murtough, and Ten Hag all agree Ronaldo has burned his bridges at Old Trafford and there is no way back for him at the club.
