Ex-Man-Utd star Ronaldo close to agreeing Al-Nassr transfer worth a staggering €200m per year
Former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly close to agreeing on a mega transfer to Saudi Arabian outfit All-Nassr.
- CR7 left United by mutual consent this month
- Available on a free transfer
- Mega money deal on table in Saudi Arabia
WHAT’S HAPPENING? According to Spanish publication Marca, Ronaldo has been offered a two-year contract by Al-Nassr, who are able to sign the 37-year-old on a free transfer following his departure from Manchester United.
THE BIGGER PICTURE Marca reports that Ronaldo has also attracted interest from MLS, but he is very conscious of picking up the most lucrative wage possible if calling time on his illustrious career in Europe. Al-Nassr are willing to pay the Portugal forward a grand total of €400 million if he agrees on a deal to play for the Saudi Arabian club until 2025.
AND WHAT’S MORE Ronaldo’s second spell at Old Trafford came to an acrimonious end earlier this month as United announced the termination of his contract by mutual consent. The decision was made following the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s controversial interview with Piers Morgan, during which he accused the club of betraying him and admitted to having no respect for head coach Erik ten Hag.
