Portugal national team captain, Cristiano Ronaldo, has revealed why he signed up for the Saudi Arabia club, Al Nassr.

Naija News reports that Ronaldo joined Al Nassr on Friday for an annual pay of $75 million.

This ended the speculations about the Portuguese’s desire to return to a Champions League-playing club following his exit from Premier League side Manchester United.

Speaking about his two-year deal with the Saudi Arabian club, the 37-year-old player said he has won everything he wanted to win in Europe, hence it was time to share his experience in Asia further.

“I am fortunate that I have won everything I set out to win in European football and feel now that this is the right moment to share my experience in Asia.

“I am looking forward to joining my new teammates and together with them help the Club to achieve success,” Ronaldo said during a press interview moments after his signing.

Ronaldo became a free agent after leaving United following his controversial and damaging interview with Piers Morgan, Naija News reports.
