This means the Argentina 2022 World Cup hero and seven times Ballon d’Or winner will reunite with his old time rival, Cristiano Ronaldo who is playing for Al-Nassr.
However, there have been rumors linking Ronaldo to Al-Nassr exit but if the Portugal international ends up staying to complete his two-year contract with Al-Nassr, the old time rivalry between the two players back then in LaLiga could be recreated in the Saudi Pro League when Al-Nassr clashes with rival Al-Hilal.
