Cristiano Ronaldo to Al Nassr is a ‘deal done’ with ex-Manchester United striker set to join new club on January 1


Cristiano Ronaldo will play for Saudi side Al Nassr from early 2023, according to reports.

The Portugal international left Manchester United last month following the termination of his contract, but he has already found his new club.

Ronaldo shocked the footballing world after his explosive interview with TalkTV host Piers Morgan, in which he criticized the Red Devils and their manager Erik ten Hag.

He was quickly released from the Old Trafford side but didn’t have to wait long to reunite with the fifth club of his senior career.

As reported by MARCA, Ronaldo has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with Al Nassr.

He is set to become the highest-paid athlete in the world, with the 37-year-old expected to earn around £173million per season in the Saudi squad.

His departure from United means he became a free agent and was therefore able to speak to all interested parties.

Premier League giants Chelsea and former club Sporting Lisbon were both linked with a transfer, but Al Nassr reportedly showed ‘the most interest from the start’.

He is now ready for a fresh start in Saudi Arabia

Ronaldo is currently on international duty at the World Cup with Portugal, with the striker having scored just once so far at this year’s tournament in Qatar.

Once back in club football, he will play his first stint outside European leagues after other previous spells like Real Madrid and Juventus.

Al Nassr currently sit second in the Saudi Pro League, with Ronaldo hoping to guide them to their first title since 2019.

Such news means a huge change for one of the best players to ever grace the game, but he will first focus on World Cup success with Portugal.
