While Cristiano Ronaldo is mainly upset that FIFA "stole" him a goal in Portugal's last game against Uruguay, Marca reports that he is actually going to be very happy, and especially enriched.
The Spanish newspaper claims that the soccer star, who will soon be 38, is close to signing with the Al Nasser team from the Saudi League for two and a half years for a crazy contract worth half a billion dollars.
"He realized that offers from European teams are almost non-existent, so he is ready to play at a lower level for compensation in the form of a huge salary," Marca wrote.
The Saudis seem to know that no team in the world can handle the sums they can offer, and for Saudi football that aims to host the 2030 World Cup (along with Egypt and Greece) this could be a big PR deal.
