According to reports in Spain, Cristiano Ronaldo will sign a contract on January 1st with Al-Nassr of Saudi Arabia.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner could earn close to €200 million (£172 million) per season under the terms of the deal, which is believed to be one of the richest in sports history.
Ronaldo is expected to sign a contract with Saudi Arabian team Al-Nassr at the beginning of the following month, according to MARCA.
According to the outlet, the initial deal will be worth almost $100 million (£86 million), but it will be encouraged by subsequent agreements like advertising and sponsorship deals.
After his contentious television interview with Piers Morgan, in which he disparaged Manchester United, the owners, and former players, the 37-year-old became a free agent at the end of the previous month.
One of the most successful clubs in Saudi Arabia is Al-Nassr, which has won the nation’s top division nine times, the most recent of which was in 2019.
The former Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina, the Brazilian midfielder Luiz Gustavo, and the Cameroonian striker Vincent Aboubakar, who last week scored a goal at the World Cup that was a strong candidate for goal of the tournament, is currently on the roster of the Saudi giants.
Between March 2018 and March 2020, their chairman, Musalli Almuammar, presided over the entire league, the Saudi Pro League.
