Breaking News: Al Nassr Sets Date For Cristiano Ronaldo Signing

Cristiano Ronaldo is looking closer and closer to signing for Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia as the striker is in Dubai and ready to fly to the country.

The World Cup disappointment with Portugal is now behind him and he has finished training at Valdebebas.

In Riyadh, they are waiting for him to sign the agreement and thus become a player of Al Nassr until June 2025.

Talks began at the same time as his departure from Manchester United and the World Cup provided a logical break for talks to take place in.

As MARCA has learnt, the move is expected to take place in 2022 and Al Nassr have recently regained the leadership of the Saudi championship under Rudi Garcia and with the Spaniard Alvaro Gonzalez in the squad.

The offer is for two and a half seasons with a payment per season of around 200 million euros between salary and advertising agreements.

In Saudi Arabia, the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo is considered a state signing, an operation that would put the country on the world football map, with the aspiration of hosting the 2030 World Cup on the horizon.

The project they have embarked on is ambitious and involves getting more prominent in the world of sport, as they already have in football with the Spanish Super Cup, and then Formula 1, golf, horse racing at the highest level.

Cristiano is taking advantage of Christmas to spend a few days off in Dubai. The World Cup has been a very hard blow for the Portuguese and he is finding it hard to digest it, especially with the triumph of Argentina and his great rival Lionel Messi.

However, at no time has he declared that he is thinking of leaving the national team and the messages from his entourage point to the 2026 World Cup as a possible objective.

What seems clear is that European football has turned its back on him, or at least the teams he would like to play for. His experiences at Juventus and Manchester United attest to this. Ahead of him lies the challenge of bringing Saudi Arabia to the forefront of world football.
