Cristiano Ronaldo joins Al-Nassr in mega-deal

Former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo has joined Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr in a deal worth $75 million per year. 

The 37-year-old left Old Trafford in controversial circumstances in November. 

In an explosive interview with Piers Morgan, the Portugal international said he had no respect for his manager Erik ten Hag. He also criticised the Glazer family, saying they don’t care about the club. 

His interview ultimately led United to terminate his contract in November after the start of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. 

However, has now reached an agreement with Al Nassr who announced it on their Twitter page

Ronaldo dominated football for almost two decades. He enjoyed enormous success at United during his first stint when Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge. 

The 37-year-old later lifted four Champions League titles at Real Madrid and was also impressive during his time at Juventus. 

The experienced forward enjoyed a brilliant first season at United as he bagged 24 goals in 38 appearances. 

However, he failed to make the same impact this campaign and was rightly dropped from the first team by Ten Hag. 

Ronaldo also endured a frustrating World Cup campaign as he failed to impress with his performances and Portugal were knocked out in the quarter-finals by Morocco. 

The forward has now joined Al Nassr where he has landed a lucrative deal. However, that also means his days at the top level of football are now over.
