Through the voice of its Minister of Sports, Saudi Arabia has rebounded from the possibility of the arrival of Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo, free of any contract.
Saudi Arabia is not only talking about the exploit of its selection against Argentina (2-1), at the 2022 World Cup. The country based in the Middle East is also at the heart of football news concerning a certain Cristiano Ronaldo. In search of a new team since the announcement by Manchester United of his departure, the Portuguese striker could take the direction of the Saudi championship, more precisely of the club of Al-Nassr coached by the Frenchman Rudi Garcia. As revealed by the newspaper brandthe team playing in Riyadh would like to try their luck with the 37-year-old player.
“Everything is possible”
Also announced on the shelves of FC Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and even Real Madrid, but not Chelsea since the Blues no longer intend to position themselves on the file, the native of Funchal would see himself for sure offer a huge salary in Saudi Arabia, even if such a challenge would be less appealing sportingly than a new challenge on the Old Continent. In any case, the Saudi government validated a possible arrival of “CR7” in the Arabian Peninsula by the voice of its Minister of Sports Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Saud, questioned by BBC Sports.
“Anything is possible, I would like to see Ronaldo play in the Saudi league. It would benefit the championship, the sports ecosystem in Saudi Arabia and it would inspire young people for the future. He is a role model for a lot of kids and has a big fan base in Saudi.” It is still necessary that the main interested party is really packed. Currently in Qatar to compete in the 2022 World Cup with the Portuguese, Cristiano Ronaldo has not spoken about his future. Scorer Thursday against Serbia (3-2), the 2016 European champion remains fully involved in his new mission in selection.
