Al Nassr confirm signing of Cristiano Ronaldo

Al Nassr have confirmed the signing of free agent Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 37-year-old left Manchester United upon the mutual termination of his contract in November and has been available on a free transfer ever since, after falling out with the club over a failed summer move and a bombshell interview.

Speculation linking him with a move to the Saudi outfit had constantly been growing. 90min understands Ronaldo had offers to remain in Europe, but none of the proposals met his demands meaning he opted to return to the offer tabled by Al Nassr.

News of his signing was confirmed on Friday evening by the club’s official Twitter account, which tweeted: “The world’s greatest athlete officially signed” alongside pictures of Ronaldo holding aloft the Al Nassr shirt.

The club’s official English twitter account tweeted images of Ronaldo with the shirt alongside the following caption.

“History in the making. This is a signing that will not only inspire our club to achieve even greater success but inspire our league, our nation and future generations, boys and girls to be the best version of themselves. Welcome @Cristiano to your new home @AlNassrFC”.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has signed a two-and-a-half year contract through to 2025, with 90min learning earlier in December that Ronaldo would be earning in the region of £250m should he sign for the club.
