Star Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly signed a record-breaking $207 million per year contract with Saudi Arabia-based club, Al Nassr.
The star player has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with Al-Nassr, which means he aims at playing the game till the age of 40.
The ongoing FIFA World Cup 2022 would be the last world cup event of his career for Portugal. Earlier, reports emerged that the Saudi club wanted to include Ronaldo in his team but the signing of the contract was not confirmed at that time. A few Months Ago Portuguese Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo received a lucrative offer of 480 Million Dollars to leave Manchester United for a club in Saudi Arabia.
Cristiano Ronaldo has a contract with Manchester United till 2023. He has informed the club that he wishes to leave before the new football season begins. Over two years, he received a great offer from an unnamed Saudi Arabian club worth £ 233.23 million (€275 million). This offer would make him the highest-paid sportsman.
Last week, Manchester United announced that the Portuguese player was to leave the club by mutual agreement, with immediate effect.
“The club thanks him for his immense contribution across two spells at Old Trafford, scoring 145 goals in 346 appearances, and wishes him and his family well for the future,” it said in a statement.
Cristiano Ronaldo also released a statement, stating that he believes it’s the right time to seek a new challenge.
Remember that in the ongoing FIFA World Cup Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score in 5 World Cups. In the FIFA World Cup group match playing against Ghana Ronaldo scored the first Goal in the ongoing tournament and become a player of history who scores in 5 consecutive world cups.
The 37-year-old striker converted a penalty in the 65th minute to give Portugal a 1-0 lead. He has now scored in every World Cup since his first in 2006 when he converted a penalty against Iran in the group stage.
