The Portuguese superstar has joined the Saudi side on a free transfer
Cristiano Ronaldo has signed with Al-Nassr. Since departing Manchester United in early December, the Portuguese attacker has been without a team. But his time as a free man has joined the Arabian side to start a new chapter of his life.
Several rumours claimed in recent weeks that Ronaldo was about to agree to a contract with Saudi Arabian organisation Al-Nassr. And he has since signed a 2.5-year contract with the Riyadh-based team. Al-Nassr announced the agreement on social media on Friday night.
“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 @AlNassrFC,” a post from the club’s Twitter account read.
Even though the 37-year-old won’t be able to play in the Champions League, he will be well-paid and have a lot of power at his new club. Ronaldo will make a huge €200m per year at Al-Nassr and will also become an ambassador when he stops playing in 2024.
