Released Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly agreed a €200m contract with Al Nassr, Abbeylivenetwork.com undertsand.
The 37-year-old had his Manchester United contract terminated earlier this month, following a tumultuous relationship with club chiefs that only worsened when he made a number of controversial statements in a TV interview with Piers Morgan.
The Portugal international was pushing for a move away from Old Trafford in the summer, but did not get his wish as he was determined to play Champions League football.
The former Real Madrid star rejected a switch to Saudi last summer, but without any firm interest from Europe’s elite clubs, he looks set to now make the move.
Ronaldo is said to have agreed a two-and-a-half year deal with Al Nassr worth £172.9million per year that will see him play until the age of 40.
Sources close to the former Real Madrid and Juventus superstar insist no deal has been signed and that Ronaldo remains focused on the World Cup with his country, but reports in Spain today claim the “dizzying figures” have been agreed.
