Cristiano Ronaldo close to signing deal with Saudi Arabian club

Cristiano Ronaldo and his agent Jorge Mendes are reportedly close to agreeing to a lucrative deal for Portugal’s captain after his contract with Manchester United was terminated earlier this month.
Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly set to agree a deal to join Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr.
The 37-year-old is said to have agreed to a two-and-a-half year deal worth $225 million per year, according to Spanish newspaper Marca.
Al Nassr, who have won the Saudi Pro League nine times but not since 2019, are said to have offered way more than any European or MLS club could offer.
Chelsea are said to no longer be interested in signing the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, while Newcastle – who are owned by a Saudi-led consortium – are also believed to have distanced themselves from making a move.
Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn said on Tuesday that the Bundesliga champions are not in talks to sign the Portugal international.
He said: “We have a clear idea, a clear philosophy of how our squad should be put together. We all appreciate him, there is no discussion.
“We all love Cristiano Ronaldo, but that is something that doesn’t fit into our idea.”
The decision to terminate his contract came after Ronaldo criticized the Manchester United board, manager Erik ten Hag and the club’s infrastructure in an interview with Piers Morgan earlier this month.The post Cristiano Ronaldo close to signing deal with Saudi Arabian club first appeared on Ariana News.
