Star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo is most likely to join Saudi Arabia’s club Al-Nassr after the conclusion of FIFA World Cup 2022, Marca- a Spanish Newspaper- has reported.
As per the report, Ronaldo has agreed to sign a €500 million (£432m) contract with the Saudi Arabian club.
The report also claimed that Ronaldo has been offered a two-and-a-half-year contract (till 2025) worth €200m (£173m) per season.
Ronaldo is in search of a new team after his former team Manchester United ended his contract last week. The entire episode unfolded after the 37-year-old player appeared in a controversial interview with Piers Morgan earlier this month.
Ronaldo’s departure came after he gave a controversial interview in which he criticised the club and the Glazer family, as well as saying he had “no respect” for manager Erik ten Hag.
“Look, he’s a very smart guy, Cristiano, he knows what he’s doing,” Morgan said.
United were furious after Ronaldo admitted he had no respect for Erik ten Hag and accused the club’s hierarchy of failing to improve facilities at the training ground.
