The time has come.

The first media reports of a signed contract.

Cristiano Ronaldo is set to move to Saudi Arabia.

Munich/Riyadh - According to media reports, the signing of football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo by Saudi Arabian Al-Nassr FC is said to be perfect.

Both the Saudi-funded news channel Al-Arabiya and, a little later, CBS Sports reported on Friday evening that the contract had been signed.

However, both broadcasters did not name specific sources. 

TV stations announce decision: Ronaldo probably before moving to Al-Nassr

CBS Sports reported on a two-and-a-half-year contract that Ronaldo is said to have signed on Friday, citing a source close to the club.

The newspaper

Al Riyadiah also

reported the agreement on a contract until 2025. Al-Arabiya announced the news live during the TV broadcast and also referred to a previous report in the Spanish sports newspaper

Marca

, which recently reported on a possible seven-year contract.

First two and a half years as a player, then as an ambassador for the World Cup application.

Saudi Arabia is working with Egypt and Greece to host the 2030 World Cup. 

There was initially no confirmation from Al-Nassr on Friday evening.

Ronaldo initially did not publish anything on social networks that indicated a change.

His last posting on Instagram was for the Brazilian football icon Pelé, who died in São Paulo on Thursday.

A contract with a club in Saudi Arabia brings Ronaldo a lot of money towards the end of his career and at the age of 37.

Al Riyadiah

reports a €100m signature bounty that the Portuguese would receive immediately.

The salary should amount to 200 million euros for two and a half years.

In terms of sport, it would mean relegation after the 2016 European champions played for top European clubs such as Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus Turin.

Since his noisy departure from Manchester United and before the World Cup, which was also disappointing for the superstar, Ronaldo has been without a club.
