Portuguese professional footballer and national team captain, Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly agreed to a record-breaking £172.9 million per year contract with Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr.
Reports emerging on Wednesday claim that the former Manchester United forward agreed to a two-and-a-half-year deal with the Arab club.
The deal means Ronaldo would be on the pitch until he turns 40, Naija News understands.
The five times Ballon d’Or winner recently ended his playing time with United days after his explosive interview with Piers Morgan where he disclosed untold stories about the English Premier League club.
It could be recalled that Ronaldo heavily criticised both Manchester United as a club and the manager Erik ten Hag, saying the club had not grown since Sir Alex Ferguson left in 2013.
He followed the harsh remark by saying that he had no respect for Ten Hag cause the manager had no respect for him.
Though sources close to the player have insisted that no deal has been signed and that Ronaldo remains focused on the World Cup with his country, Daily Mail UK reported on Wednesday (today) the figures have been agreed for the Portugal star.
