United have opened legal proceedings against Ronaldo for breach of contract, although the club must go through certain procedures before potentially sacking the Portugal international.

Ronaldo, 37, conducted a highly-critical interview in which he accused his employers of betrayal and took on the club’s hierarchy alongside head coach Erik ten Haag.

The Old Trafford club released a statement on Thursday, which read: “Manchester United have this morning initiated appropriate action in response to Cristiano Ronaldo’s recent media interviews.

“We will not comment further until this process is complete.”

Under that agreement, they are “obliged to obey and act in accordance with all lawful instructions of any authorized officer of the Club” and are “not permitted to write or say anything which may cause the Club to be defamed … to the detriment of the Club.”

United will have to assess the extent to which Ronaldo breached his contract with his comments to determine what the outcome might be.

Having initially rejoined United on a two-year deal with an option for an extra year in August 2021, his current terms will expire in August 2023 – assuming an extra year is not agreed.

If Ronaldo is deemed to have breached his contract, the club can terminate his contract.
