Cristiano Ronaldo and Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia have reached a record-breaking contract worth £172.9 million annually.
Ronaldo and Saudi Arabia’s Al Nassr F.C. reach a £173 million deal agreement
The 37-year-contract old’s with Man Utd was terminated earlier this month as a result of a rocky relationship with the club’s management. The situation got even worse after he made several contentious claims in a TV interview with Piers Morgan.
As per reports, Ronaldo and Al Nassr have sensationally agreed to a two-and-a-half-year contract at a staggering £172.9 million annually. The contract may likelyto keep him playing until he turns 40.
A agreement has not yet been finalized, according to sources close to the former Real Madrid and Juventus player, who also maintains his concentration is on the World Cup with his country. However, reports in Spain today indicate that the “dizzying sums” have been negotiated.
The Portugal international wanted to leave Old Trafford in the summer. But he was unable to do so since he was committed to playing in the Champions League.
Last summer, the former Real Madrid player turned down a move to Saudi Arabia, but without any firm interest from Europe’s top teams, he appears destined to now head to the Middle East.
One of the most successful clubs in Saudi Arabia is Al-Nassr. They have won the nation’s top division nine times, the most recent of which was in 2019. Al-Nassr may not have won the league in either 2020 or 2021, but have won the Saudi Super Cup.
Due to various struggles, the club could not participate in the 1999–2000 Club World Cup. In their group matchup that year, they faced Real Madrid, and defeated the Los Blancos by 3-1.
