Ronaldo joins Saudi club Al Nassr with record $214 million contract
After leaving the Manchester United club on 30 December 2022, Portugal team captain Cristiano Ronaldo has joined Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr on a two-and-a-half-year contract.
Ronaldo left Old Trafford after a television interview last month. He said that he has been cheated by the club.
Al Nassr issued a statement saying that the five-time Ballon d'Or winner will be under contract until 2025.
Although he did not reveal any financial details, Ronaldo's contract is estimated by the media to be worth more than 200 million euros ($214.04 million), the highest salary in football history.
Ronaldo will move to Saudi Arabia after a stellar spell at Spanish club Real Madrid from 2009 to 2018, winning two La Liga titles, two Spanish Cups, four Champions League titles and three Club World Cups.
Ronaldo's inclusion will provide a boost to the Saudi Arabian club, which is looking to add to its nine Saudi Pro League titles.
