Piers Morgan has offered up his two cents on Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Manchester United and the Glazer family weighing up a potential sale of the Old Trafford outfit.

Ronaldo, 37, sat down with Morgan for a bombshell interview and launched a scathing attack on United’s owners, Erik ten Hag and his former teammates.

Ronaldo broke his silence not long after his United contract was mutually terminated, saying that he loves the club and the fans.

“Following talks with Manchester United, we’ve mutually agreed to end our contract,” reads the statement.

“I love Manchester United and I love the fans, that will never ever change.

“It feels like the right time to seek a new challenge. I wish Man Utd all the best.”

Morgan initially took to Twitter after Ronaldo’s United contract was terminated and sent a straightforward tweet to his 8.1m followers: “The End.”

“Ronaldo’s interview has forced the Glazers to sell up. Incredible,” Morgan tweeted.

In his following tweet, Morgan shared Ronaldo’s thoughts on the state of United since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.

And the TalkTV host insisted that United fans should be thanking Ronaldo for speaking out on the club ahead of his departure from Old Trafford.

“The words United fans should be using are ‘Thank you, Cristiano,’” Morgan added.

“The strength of Manchester United rests on the passion and loyalty of our global community of 1.1billion fans and followers,” United co-chairmen Avram and Joel Glazer said.
