Cristiano Ronaldo to sign record contract with Saudi Arabia’s Al Nassr Club

Qatar: After being shunned by Manchester United last week, the 37-year-old superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is set to sign up with Saudi Arabia’s Al Nassr club for the next two and a half years. As per a Spanish newspaper outlet Marca, Ronaldo is set to sign a bumper £172.9million-a-year contract with the club.

Currently, Ronaldo is featured at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar for Portugal. He recently became the only player to score in five World Cups. Ronaldo is set to move out of Old Trafford this summer. As per reports, he did not get his wish of playing in the Champions League. Al-Nassr is one of the most successful football clubs in Saudi Arabia.

Ronaldo, who re-joined United in August 2021 and finished as their top scorer in all competitions last season with 24 goals said about ten Hag, “I don’t have respect for him because he doesn’t show respect for me. If you don’t have respect for me, I’m never gonna have respect for you.”

In an interview with Piers Morgan for TalkTV, released by The Sun, Ronaldo also claimed there has been “zero progress” at the club since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in the summer of 2013.

“Honestly, I don’t know. I don’t care. People should hear the truth. Yes, I feel betrayed. Some people don’t want me here not only this year but last year too. I don’t know what’s going on. Since Sir Alex Ferguson left I have seen no evolution in the club. The progress is zero,” the 37-year-old said.
