Cristiano Ronaldo has joined Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr till the summer of 2025 and, according to reports, he will receive $75 million per year.
“I am excited to experience a new football league in a different country,” Ronaldo said in Al-Nassr’s statement announcing the deal.
“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, 37, forced his way out of Old Trafford last month, mutually terminating his contract following a contentious TV interview.
