After his departure from Manchester United, which was shrouded in controversy, Cristiano Ronaldo has signed with the Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr, according to an announcement made by the club on Friday.
Reports indicate that Ronaldo will get $75 million in annual compensation for the duration of the contract that he signed, which runs until the summer of 2025. It is estimated that Cristiano Ronaldo will add around $150 million more to his wealth during his time in Saudi Arabia.
“I am excited to experience a new football league in a different country.”
“The vision of what Al Nassr are doing and developing in Saudi Arabia both in terms of men’s and women’s football is very inspiring. We can see from Saudi Arabia’s recent performance at the World Cup that this is a country with big football ambitions and a lot of potential.
“I am fortunate that I have won everything I set out to win in European football and feel now that this is the right moment to share my experience in Asia. I am looking forward to joining my new teammates and together with them help the Club to achieve success.” Ronaldo said in Al-Nassr’s statement announcing the deal.
