Cristiano Ronaldo joins Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr FC

Cristiano Ronaldo, the captain of Portugal, has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr, the Saudi club has announced. The media has reported that Ronaldo’s deal with Al Nassr is worth more than 200 million euros ($214.5 million).
On Saturday, Al Nassr shared a photo of Ronaldo holding up the team’s shirt on social media, declaring the contract as “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.

 

I am fortunate that I have won everything I set out to win in European football and feel now that this is the right moment to share my experience in Asia,” Ronaldo stated in the statement.
“I am looking forward to joining my new teammates and together with them help the Club to achieve success.”
After a remarkable career at Spanish giant Real Madrid from 2009 to 2018, where he won two La Liga championships, two Spanish Cups, four Champions League crowns, and three Club World Cups, Ronaldo will come to Saudi Arabia with a great collection of club honors. He then went on to score 451 goals for Real Madrid, a club record, and has more than 800 senior goals total for the club and nation.

The Saudi Arabian club, which has won nine Saudi Pro Premier League championships, is counting on Ronaldo to help them capture their first-ever AFC Asian Champions League victory as well as another domestic league championship.
