What Cristiano Ronaldo text to Piers Morgan

Piers Morgan has revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo sent him a text message saying he feels "free as a bird" following his exit from Manchester United.

Morgan exchanged a number of messages with the Portugal star, with both joking about his feeling of freedom after leaving the Manchester club 

The TV host, whose interview helped Ronaldo get ejected from United, also thought rumours of a Saudi transfer were premature.

WHAT THEY SAID: "I texted Cristiano a GIF of William Wallace in Braveheart shouting: 'Freedom!',

Morgan revealed. “He thought that was a perfect summation of how he felt. ‘Free as a bird’ was his response." 

Morgan responded: "He thinks that if he does well at this World Cup, he’ll get what he really wants, which is a club in the Champions League that extends his record and his legacy

It’s not about money at this stage of his career. It comes down to a burning desire to play football at the highest level, to break records and win trophies. And he has done that in more countries than any other player in history."
