Ronaldo In Al-Nassar
The legendary soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo, who is now 37 years old and plays for the Saudi Arabian club Al Nassar FC, has signed a large contract to play for the club for the next two years, which had been the subject of rumours for several weeks. The revelation was first reported by the Saudi-owned television channel Al Arabiya, and it was confirmed by a post on the social media sites of Al Nassar FC, which showed Ronaldo holding his new jersey and included the accompanying statement:
This moment will go down in history. Not only will this signing motivate our team to achieve even greater success, but it will also inspire our league, our nation, and future generations, both boys and girls, to be the best versions of themselves that they can be.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who is one of the best soccer players in the world, is joining the Saudi Arabian club team Al Nassr. He will play for them until June 2025. Al Nassr FC wrote on its official English-language Twitter account, “History is being made.”
“This signing will not only help our team do even better, but it will also help our league, our country, and the boys and girls of the future be the best versions of themselves. Welcome to your new home, AlNassrFC, Cristiano.” Ronaldo told the Saudi club that he is “excited to play in a new football league in a different country,” which the club reported.
The 37-year-old captain of the Portugal team is now a free agent. He left the big British club Manchester United after a big fight with some of the club’s management. The news that Ronaldo signed on Friday came after months of rumours and speculation about whether he would join a Saudi team, as more than one had made big offers in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
In the summer, Ronaldo turned down an offer from another Saudi club, Al Hilal, which would have paid him about $370 million over a number of years. At the time, he chose to stay at Manchester United because he said he was happy there.
When commercial deals are taken into account, Ronaldo’s salary with Al Nassr is said to be around $200 million per year, which, if true, would be the highest salary in the history of the sport. Fabrizio Romano, a well-known soccer reporter, wrote about the contract deal in a tweet and called it the “biggest salary in football history.”
Ronaldo is 37, which is the typical age for a professional soccer player to retire. Signing with Real Madrid will extend his career and make him a lot of money. Under his contract with Manchester United, Ronaldo made an eye-popping $605,000 per week. He is one of the athletes who has ever made the most money. It is said that Ronaldo will make more than $1 million per week from the Al Nassr contract.
Al Nassr is one of the oldest soccer teams in Saudi Arabia. It was started in Riyadh in 1955 and has won nine titles in the Saudi Premier League. Rudi Garcia, who is from France, is the team’s current manager. He has worked for top clubs in Europe like Roma, Olympique de Marseille, and Lille.

Saudi clubs are known for being able to pay foreign players a lot of money. This is because the oil-rich and conservative kingdom is building up its sports, entertainment, and other industries to attract tourists, talent, and investment, which will help the country’s economy become more diverse. Saudi Arabia has put in a bid to host the World Cup in 2030.
As of the end of 2022, Ronaldo has scored 819 goals in his professional soccer career, which makes him the player with the most goals in the history of the sport. He scored 450 goals for the Spanish team Real Madrid, 145 goals in 346 games for Manchester United, 118 goals for the Portuguese national team, and 101 goals for the Italian club Juventus.
Ronaldo has done a lot in soccer, and he also has a huge number of followers on social media. This is likely of great value to the Saudi kingdom, which wants to bring more positive attention to the country. In 2021, Ronaldo was the first athlete to have more than 500 million followers on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram combined. Right now, he has 525 million followers on Instagram alone.
Ronaldo played in his last World Cup in Qatar in 2022. When he scored the winning goal against Ghana, he became the first person to score in five different World Cups. Morocco later eliminated the Portuguese team from the tournament.
