On the eve it became known that the 37-year-old Portuguese football player Cristiano Ronaldo received a business proposal that is difficult to refuse. After being fired from Manchester United, the legendary striker was invited to various football clubs, but Al-Nasr from Saudi Arabia turned out to be the most persistent. The club intends to sign a 3-year contract with Ronaldo, according to which he will receive a fee of $ 75 million per season. According to CBS Sports, the deal could be signed in as little as a month. However, Ronaldo himself has not yet commented on the proposal he received.
Note that the potential salary of Ronaldo in Al-Nasr can be considered the highest in the world of football. By comparison, Kylian Mbappe makes $57 million a season, Neymar — 49 million and Lionel Messi — 40.5 million. By the way, all three play for the Paris Saint-Germain club.
Recall that the Manchester United club terminated the contract with Cristiano Ronaldo last week. This happened after the football player gave a frank interview to journalist Piers Morgan and called the club “traitors.” According to him, after the death of their newborn son and Georgina Rodriguez, the management did not show understanding for the emotional state of the football player and “doubted” his professionalism.
Ronaldo played with Manchester United from 2003 to 2009, then left for the Italian Juventus, and returned to his native club in 2021. In total, together with Manchester United, the footballer took part in 346 matches and scored 145 goals.
