The Portuguese superstar terminated his Man Utd contract on mutual consent.
Marcus Rashford has opened up on Cristiano Ronaldo’s mid-season departure from Manchester United.
Following Ronaldo’s explosive interview with Piers Morgan, the Red Devils decided to terminate his contract.
The 37-year-old leaves Old Trafford for the second time in his career, with Rashford wishing him luck on his next challenge.
“It has been an unbelievable experience to play with him,” Rashford said on Sunday.
“He is one of my idols and someone I always looked up to. It’s something I can keep with me forever.
“I wish him all the best, and we want to thank him for the things he’s done for Manchester United.”
Ronaldo is yet to announce a decision over his future, with most sources claiming he won’t do so until after the World Cup.
Reports have emerged of Arsenal and Chelsea’s interest in keeping CR7 in the Premier League. However, in recent days, an unknown Saudi Arabian club have intensified their efforts to sign Ronaldo.
The middle-eastern country’s sports minister has recently backed the idea of Ronaldo’s possible transfer to the Saudi Pro League.
“We will definitely support it if any [Saudi] private sector comes in,” Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al-Faisal said.
“Because we know that’s going to reflect positively on sports within the kingdom. If there’s an investor willing to do so and the numbers add up, why not?”
