Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly accepted an offer of a two-and-a-half year contract from Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr. The 37-year-old Portuguese superstar is said to have been offered an astonishing £173million per season until 2025, with a significant portion being made up of image rights and sponsorship deals.
Interview with Piers
The news follows his explosive interview with Piers Morgan, where he railed against Erik ten Hag and the Manchester United hierarchy. After mutual agreement, Ronaldo left Old Trafford this month after playing just 520 minutes of Premier League action and scoring one goal.
Journalist Fabrizio Romano confirmed that Ronaldo had received the formal offer from Al Nassr on Twitter.
It was reported that in the summer, Ronaldo had declined an offer of £306 million to join a Saudi Arabian club - but now it appears he has accepted such an offer and could be set for a new start in the Middle East. In his official statement regarding his departure from Manchester United, Ronaldo said: “Following talks with Manchester United, we’ve mutually agreed to end our contract."
