Cristiano Ronaldo joined Saudi club Al Nassr on Friday. He has started signing his contracts and his medical visit, and everything should be formalized in the coming days.
The world press announces it, everything is complete with regard to the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo at Al-Nassr. The rest of CR7’s incredible career therefore continues in Saudi Arabia, in a third zone championship but with a colossal salary at stake. The reason for this choice is simple. Despite great personal ambitions and the desire to find a team qualified for the Champions League, the Portuguese simply did not find what he was looking for. His agent Jorge Mendes offered him to several clubs, in Italy and Germany in particular, without having any favorable responses.
Despite his status as a free player after his departure by slamming the door of Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo did not have the will to wait for the end of the transfer market, in a month. It must be said that, for a player who has always been a desired leader and the best in his team, the current situation is very difficult to digest. As a result, his choice has been made in recent weeks and Saudi Arabia’s approaches have been heard. It must be said that the two-year contract from which he will benefit is enough to make you dizzy. It will indeed be a deal valid until June 2025 and a salary of 70 million euros which will once again make him the highest paid player on the planet. To this will be added more than 100 million euros in various contracts with companies in the Gulf which will make it possible to inflate the note until approaching the famous 200 million euros per season.
🚨 Cristiano Ronaldo has signed for Al-Nassr.

Suffice to say that it will be a real golden bridge that will be offered to Cristiano Ronaldo to evolve in the Saudi championship, in the most powerful club in the Kingdom. His signing is now only a matter of hours away, and has even already been done according to Ben Jacobs, a well-informed CBS reporter. This Friday, CR7 signed for the Riyadh club and carried out the first part of the medical tests. The second part is scheduled for next week, after the New Year festivities. The official announcement should take place in the next few days, probably after Al-Nassr’s next game which will take place this Saturday.
The title in Saudi Arabia in objective
In Saudi Arabia, Cristiano Ronaldo will stay in a private residence located very close to the club’s facilities. In his numerous contracts with Saudi companies, he should become the great ambassador of Saudi Arabia’s candidacy to organize the 2030 World Cup. Riyadh is not at the top of its championship, the formation of Rudi Garcia being for the moment 2nd behind Al Shabab of Banega and Krychowiak. Note that the French coach could bear the brunt of this prestigious arrival at Al-Nassr, as the Portuguese will have expanded sporting powers within the club, already renamed “Cristiano Ronaldo FC” by observers.
