Cristiano Ronaldo joins Saudi Arabian side Al Nassar

 In a move that will effectively signal the end of his top level playing career but will ensure he is extremely well remunerated as his retirement approached, Ronaldo put pen to paper on a contract for the Riyadh club on Friday afternoon.

The deal, understood to run to 2025, with the 37-year-old understood to be bagging £173m-a-year transfer after bitter Man United exit as his contact was terminated last month.  

“I’m thrilled for a new experience in a different league and a different country, the vision that Al Nassr has is very inspiring,” said Ronaldo. “I’m very excited to join my teammates, and to help the team to achieve more success.” Said Cristiano Ronaldo

The club Al Nassar had this to say about their lucrative deal.

“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.”

Ronaldo will team up with Cameroon player Vicente Abubaker who is the current top scorer in the league alongside former arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina.

Al-Nassr currently sit at the top of the Saudi Pro League, having won seven of their opening 10 matches.
