According to reports in Spain, Cristiano Ronaldo has signed a contract worth €500 million (£432 million) with Al-Nassr and is expected to join the Saudi Arabian club after the World Cup.
As a result of his contentious interview with Piers Morgan earlier this month, Manchester United last week terminated the 37-year contract, old’s and he is now looking for a new team.
Ronaldo admitted he had no respect for Erik ten Hag and accused the club’s hierarchy of failing to upgrade the facilities at the training facility, which infuriated United.
Ronaldo did not receive a payout from United after leaving, even though he had seven months left on his contract, which was worth more than £500,000 a week.
However, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner will soon receive a sizable salary after signing an initial contract to join Al-Nassr, according to Marca.
A two-and-a-half-year deal worth €200 million (£173 million) per season has reportedly been offered to Ronaldo, according to the report.
Ronaldo pushed to leave United during the summer transfer window, but despite the efforts of his agent, Jorge Mendes, to find a new club, several sides across Europe turned down the chance of a deal.
Additionally, it appears that Ronaldo encountered a comparable circumstance this winter because both Chelsea and Bayern Munich disregarded a potential transfer this month.
Oliver Kahn, CEO of Bayern Munich, responded on Tuesday in response to a question regarding a potential Ronaldo transfer, saying that the club has a clear philosophy and idea of how its team should be assembled.
There is no debate; we all appreciate him. No matter how much we all adore Cristiano Ronaldo, that doesn’t seem to fit with our worldview.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo is getting ready for Friday’s match against South Korea, which will be Portugal’s final World Cup group match.
The 37-year-old became the only male player to score in five different World Cup competitions when he put Portugal up 1-0 against Ghana last week in their 3-2 victory.
