Report: Cristiano Ronaldo To Join Saudi Arabian club For A Record $200 Million Fees1 min read
According to media sources, Cristiano Ronaldo has agreed to a two-year contract with the Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr. According to the Spanish news outlet Marca, Ronaldo is about to sign a two-year contract worth $212 million (€200 million). He will join the club in January after talks of a ‘close’ deal first surfaced in November.
The initial agreement is projected to be roughly $105 million, but it will be supplemented with marketing and sponsorship partnerships. If the agreement goes through, it will be one of the most valuable in sports history, rivaling the contracts of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has been a free agent since parting ways with Manchester United.
Ronaldo’s turbulent comeback to Manchester United ended last month after he delivered an angry interview with British journalist Piers Morgan. In the interview, Ronald was candid about how he was treated at Manchester United and how the club had been stuck in a rut for years. Days after the interview, both parties mutually agreed to part ways with immediate effect.
“Following conversations with Manchester United we have mutually agreed to end our contract early,” Ronaldo said on his official accounts. “I love Manchester United, and I love the fans, that will never ever change. However, it feels like the right time for me to seek a new challenge.”
