Manchester United are considering firing Cristiano Ronaldo following his explosive interview with Piers Morgan.
United’s attorneys are reportedly examining Ronaldo’s claims that he feels betrayed by the club and has no respect for manager Erik ten Hag to determine if he has breached his contract.
United are awaiting the remainder of the interview, which will air on Wednesday and Thursday, and stated Monday that the club “will consider its response after the full facts have been established.”

United and Ronaldo are also considering ripping up the player’s £500,000-per-week contract so that he can become a free agent. Old Trafford officials are hesitant to offer the 37-year-old star a pay-off or to subsidize his wages at another club for the remainder of the season, as doing so would be viewed as rewarding disloyalty.
Monday night, sources indicated that it is unlikely that Ronaldo will return to United after the World Cup and play for Ten Hag again.
His agent, Jorge Mendes, is seeking a new club, and it has been revealed that he met with Bayern Munich officials last week.
