'So far I'm feeling very good.

I am so proud to have made this big decision in my life.

As you mentioned, in Europe my work is done.

I won everything, I played in the most important clubs in Europe.

This is a new challenge for me.«

The 37-year-old Portuguese, who was kicked out at Manchester United in November after his general settlement with the club, has reportedly signed a seven-year contract.

»See you soon, Nasser fans!«

Ronaldo is said to be on the pitch in Saudi Arabia for two and a half years.

After that, as a football ambassador, he should help the country, which is controversial for human rights violations, to be awarded the contract to host the 2030 World Cup finals.

The joy in the kingdom is great.

“I hope this deal will be a success for Al Nassr and for the future vision and marketing of the club.

I have been a supporter of Al Nassr since the time of the late Chairman Abdulrahman Al-Saud and this is the greatest deal for Saudi Arabia and the Arab nation.”

Al Nassr FC supporter Khaled Almajed


Having Ronaldo will add value to the Saudi league.

Judging by the tweets and opinions on this topic, it's a deal that will never happen again.


After the tearful World Cup departure, the soccer star has his career end gilded.

According to media reports, Ronaldo will earn around 200 million euros a year during his active career at Al Nassr, and the salary should even increase for his role as ambassador.

For Ronaldo, the millions are a kind of compensation after he was offered like sour beer at various top European clubs in the summer.

Because one thing is clear: With his commitment to the Saudi club Al Nassr, Ronaldo disappears into nothing in terms of sport.

As an advertising icon, on the other hand, CR7 is still world class and has been ubiquitous for years.


He earns millions and hardly has to do anything for it.

Ronaldo's new club Al Nassr has said the deal with the superstar will inspire not only the club to achieve even greater success, but also the league, the nation and generations to come.

Great things are to be created, human rights are irrelevant.

Al Nassr plans to bring more top stars to the desert.

Maybe Cristiano Ronaldo will win the Champions League again, even if "only" the Asian one.
