Breaking: Cristiano Ronaldo joins Al-Nassr in Saudi Arabia


According to rumours in Saudi Arabia, Cristiano Ronaldo has joined Al-Nassr on a massive two-year contract for €200 million annually.

Following his release by Manchester United on the eve of the World Cup, Ronaldo’s future has been uncertain.

In an interview with Piers Morgan, the Portuguese star attacked United‘s Glazer family ownership and manager Erik ten Hag. Soon after, the player and club parted ways “by mutual consent.”

Ronaldo reportedly intended to find a team that could assist him add to his 140 Champions League goals record, but no such offer has been made, thus he has decided to finish his career in the Middle East.

Ronaldo will play for Al-Nassr for the ensuing 2.5 seasons as part of the agreement before serving as an ambassador for Saudi Arabia’s 2030 World Cup bid.

Deal with Ronaldo

According to reports, Al-Nassr will offload up to three players to ensure that the sale of Ronaldo doesn’t violate the region’s general financial regulations.

When it was reported that Al-Nassr was considering another striker, Ronaldo or not, Vincent Aboubakar, who scored a beautiful chip for Cameroon against Serbia at the World Cup, was already seeking for a new club.

It is anticipated that Ronaldo will earn more money as a Saudi Arabian ambassador than he did throughout his playing career.

Ronaldo has won the Champions League and the Ballon d’Or five times each, with the majority of those victories coming while playing for Real Madrid, where he holds the record for most goals ever scored with 450 in 438 games from 2009 to 2018.

Before netting just one goal—a penalty—for Portugal at the World Cup, he experienced an unfortunate second stint at United.
