Cristiano Ronaldo is set to earn an eye-watering €200m per season as he agrees terms with Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr.
According to Spanish outlet Marca, Ronaldo will be making the move to Saudi Arabia at the end of the year. He’ll be earning a pretty penny, too, with a reported salary of €200m per season deal having been agreed. Al-Nassr, who sit second in the Saudi Pro League, were interested in securing his services straight after his second United spell ended and look set to add the Portuguese icon to their ranks.
Not many clubs in the world could afford Ronaldo’s wages, hence why he’ll be making the move outside of Europe for the first time in his career. Links with the likes of Chelsea appeared soon after his United exit but nothing was ever concrete with the London club.
Oliver Kahn of Bayern Munich allegedly spoke to the media about how his club turned down the chance to sign Ronaldo, just months after letting Robert Lewandowski move to Barcelona.
According to Fabrizo Romano, he confirmed Ronaldo and his entourage are already considering the contract but Ronaldo hasn’t made a decision. The focus is fully on the world Cup. The contract sees him become the highest paid footballer in football history.
