Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly signed a two-year deal with Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr. The forward mutually terminated his contract with Manchester United prior to the World Cup following several issues at the club that saw him fall out of favour
According to Al Alarabiya, Ronaldo penned a contract with Al-Nassr on Friday following talks with the club. The forward bided his time over the international break to consider his options, though now appears to have settled for a stint in Saudi Arabia.
Ronaldo was keen to leave United for a European club in the summer, though no offers arrived despite his agent, Jorge Mendes, approaching numerous clubs. Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid were amongst those to have held talks about the 37-year-old, though his options soon became limited when no concrete offers arrived.
Thus, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has reportedly settled for becoming one of the highest-paid players in football history. Reports have circulated previously that Al-Nassr had offered Ronaldo a £175million-per-year contract, with the Middle Eastern side intending to make the ex-Real Madrid star the ‘face’ of the Saudi Pro League.
