This time, there is no room for doubt, Cristiano Ronaldo (37) has indeed left Europe, heading to Saudi Arabia and Al-Nassr for the fivefold Ballon d’Or. The Saudi training put an end to the suspense of this boiling CR7 file this Friday evening by indicating, through a press release, the signing of the Portuguese striker until June 2025.

The former Real Madrid star, free since the termination of his contract with Manchester United a few weeks ago, should receive nearly 200 million euros during his stay in Saudi Arabia.
