Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly signed a two-year contract with Saudi Arabian team Al Nassr, with rumors swirling that he will earn a staggering 200 million euros per year, plus bonuses. The news of Ronaldo's move to the Middle East was first reported by Saudi Arabian media and has since been broadcast by European media outlets, though both the player and the club have yet to officially confirm the move.
Ronaldo arrived at Al Nassr as a free agent after ending his stint with Manchester United during the World Cup. The Portuguese player had a tumultuous relationship with the English club, making headlines with critical comments about the team in a pre-World Cup interview.
Despite the lack of confirmation, it is clear that Ronaldo will be a major addition to Al Nassr and the Saudi Arabian league as a whole. The club's manager Rudy Garcia is sure to be thrilled with the acquisition of such a high-profile player.
In addition to his soccer career, Ronaldo is also expected to play a key role in Saudi Arabia's campaign to host the 2030 World Cup. The Portuguese athlete has previously played for Sporting, Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Juventus, and has announced his intention to represent Portugal at the 2024 European Championship in Germany.
While there has been no official confirmation of Ronaldo's move to Al Nassr, the news has garnered a significant amount of attention and speculation. Some have questioned the validity of the reported salary, with some estimates putting it at double the amount earned by any other soccer player in the world.
Regardless of the final details of the contract, Ronaldo's move to Al Nassr will undoubtedly bring more attention and recognition to the Saudi Arabian league. The Portuguese player is one of the most well-known and successful athletes in the world, and his presence is sure to draw more fans and sponsors to the league.
It remains to be seen how Ronaldo will adapt to his new team and league, but his track record of success suggests that he will continue to thrive on the pitch.
