One of Portugal’s greatest footballers of all-time, Cristiano Ronaldo has moved to Saudi Arabian Club, Al-Nassr in a mouth-watering two-year deal.
The former Manchester United, Real Madrid, Juventus and Sporting Lisbon player signed for Al-Nassr in a £175 million-a-year contract.
The deal was sealed following Ronaldo’s unceremonious departure from Manchester United in November 2022. Ronaldo became a free agent after his departure from Manchester United.
Aged 37, Ronaldo will see his contract at Al-Nassr run until 2025.
Al-Nassr confirmed the deal in their post sighted by www.africanentertainment.com on Instagram.
The club announced the deal by saying: “This is more than history in the making. This is a signing that will not only inspire our club to achieve even greater success but inspire our league, our nation and future generations, boys and girls to be the best version of themselves. Welcome @cristiano to your new home @alnassr_fc”.
Ronaldo left Manchester United in a tumultuous manner following his explosive interview with journalist Piers Morgan prior to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Al-Nassr currently sit second on the Saudi Pro League table with 23 points, and have Cameroonian player, Vincent Aboubakar as one of their top players.
