Former Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has joined Saudi Arabian Al-Nassr in a deal worth $75 million per year until 2025, bringing Ronaldo’s short-lived experience as a free agent to an end.
Ronaldo, 37, cut ties with Manchester United back in November, following a controversial interview in which he criticised the club.
He is said to have signed the agreement on Friday afternoon, with the club set to formally announce his signing after their game against Al-Khaleej on Saturday.
Al Nassr- nine-time Saudi Pro League champions – described the signing as “history in the making.”
Ronaldo, who scored 145 goals in 346 appearances for United, left Juventus to rejoin the Old Trafford club in August 2021 – 11 years after he departed to join Real Madrid.
He had just over seven months remaining on his £500,000-a-week contract with United but his immediate exit was “mutually agreed.”
