I meant mutually agree to cancel so there would not have been any compensation involved. I will be very surprised and disappointed if we have actually paid Ronaldo to cancel the contract. I really doubt we plan to sue him. It will be a bit of a PR nightmare.Can't cancel the contract earlier. Man utd will have to pay extra millions in compensation to Ronaldo and also the club will suffer bad reputation.
Now, the bad reputation is on Ronaldo and the compensation (if any) is much less. And united may even sue Ronaldo later on for more cash.
