A club statement read: "Cristiano Ronaldo is to leave Manchester United by mutual agreement, with immediate effect.
"The club thanks him for his immense contribution across two spells at Old Trafford, scoring 145 goals in 346 appearances and wishes him and his family well for the future.
"Everyone at Manchester United remains focused on continuing the team’s progress under Erik ten Hag and working together to deliver success on the pitch."
The Portuguese rejoined the Manchester outfit for a second spell in 2021 and enjoyed an individually impressive campaign.
He has since seen his form deteriorate and ultimately fell out of favour with manager Erik ten Hag.
The 37-year-old has since released his own statement in response to his former club.
He said: "Following conversations with Manchester United we have mutually agreed to end our contract early.
"I love Manchester United and I love the fans, that will never ever change. However, it feels like the right time for me to seek a new challenge.
"I wish the team every success for the remainder of the season and for the future."
Ronaldo’s controversial interview aired on TalkTV with Morgan and saw criticism aimed at his manager and ex-teammates.
The International superstar also claimed that members of the United board were trying to force him out of the club, while also suggesting that there was doubt over his claims about his ill daughter.
