Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo is edging closer to joining Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr after ripping up his contract at Manchester United, according to reports in Spain. The 37-year-old superstar is currently a free agent after the Red Devils confirmed the departure of the Portuguese forward earlier this week following the mutual termination of his Old Trafford deal.
Ronaldo is now focusing on the World Cup with his national team as they prepare to face Ghana in their Group H opener but in the background, it appears there has been movement on his club future behind the scenes.
According to MARCA, CR7 now seems to be set on a move to Saudi Arabia with Al-Nassr ready to pay eye-watering money to bring the star attacker to the Middle East.
Initially, doubts were raised as to whether Ronaldo would be prepared to play in Saudi amid fears the league would not be competitive enough.
