Cristiano Ronaldo has broken his long-held silence on a potential move to Saudi club Al Nassr, MySportDab reports.
The former Manchester United forward had his contract terminated by the Red Devils after he clashed with the club’s hierarchy following his controversial interview with Piers Morgan.
Speculations have been linking him to a potential move to two Saud clubs – Al Hilal and Al Nassr, with Marca reporting that the 37-year-old is closing on a move to Al Nassr.
Al Hilal were also interested in the five times Ballon d’Or winner since he intended to leave Manchester United at the beginning of this season.
Ronaldo had told Manchester United that he wanted to leave the club after the club failed to qualify for the Champions League this season.
While no European club playing in the Champions League made an offer for him, the Portuguese star confirmed in an interview with Piers Morgan that he turned down a mega offer of £305million from a Saudi club in the period.
Following his contract termination, it has been revealed that the same Saudi clubs are making a move to sign Ronaldo, who is now a free agent.
Speaking after Portugal’s 6-1 thrashing of Switzerland in the round of the 2022 World Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo debunked rumors linking him to a potential move to Al Nassr.
When asked about the speculations making the rounds, Ronaldo simply responded, “it is not true.”
The former Juventus and Real Madrid forward is currently focused on the World Cup with Portugal and seems not bothered about his future after the World Cup.
