Cristiano Ronaldo, “The transfer to Saudi Arabia is imminent with an annual salary of 200 million euros.”
Will “Invincible” Cristiano Ronaldo (37) succeed in getting a job ahead of his showdown with South Korea? It is news that he is close to joining Saudi Arabia’s Al Nasr.
Spain’s “Marca” said on the 30th, “Ronaldo is almost completing his transfer to Saudi football team Al-Nasr. The contract will last two and a half years, and Ronaldo will receive 200 million euros (about 272.9 billion won) per season, including salary and advertising contracts, he said.
Ronaldo broke up with Manchester United under mutual agreement on the 23rd during the 2022 Qatar World Cup. His bombshell remarks just before the World Cup were fatal. Ronaldo earlier sparked controversy by making shocking remarks such as “I became a black sheep that covers all the club’s faults” and “I don’t respect Eric Ten Hagh because he doesn’t respect me.”
Ronaldo, who finished his second trip with Manchester United bitterly, said, “I love Manchester United and I love my fans. That will never change. But I think now is the right time to take on new challenges. “I wish Manchester United success for the rest of the season and the future,” he said.
Now Ronaldo is receiving a Saudi love call. Earlier, U.S. ‘CBS’ said, “Al Nasr and other clubs in the Middle East have been interested in Ronaldo for a long time. In particular, Al-Nasr’s interest is stronger than ever, he said. “The two sides began contact last summer, and negotiations have progressed relatively. However, we have to wait for Ronaldo’s final decision.
In the end, Ronaldo seems to have opened his heart to Saudi Arabia’s “oil money.” “Al-Nasr’s unrivaled suggestion seduced Ronaldo. No European team and the U.S. Major League Soccer team have come close to the Arab team’s proposal, he said. “Now the negotiations between Ronaldo and Al-Nasr will end soon.” There is no legal obstacle to this,” he added.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo’s Portugal will play the third Group H match against South Korea on the 3rd of next month. For South Korea, which is on the brink of collapse with one draw and one loss, it is a game that must be won to advance to the round of 16. Portugal, which beat both Ghana and Uruguay earlier, has already confirmed its advance to the round of 16. “
