Making of history. This is a signing that will motivate not only our team to further its success but also our league, our country, and the next generation of young men and women to strive to be the best versions of themselves. The official announcement of Cristiano Ronaldo’s signing with Al Nassr has been made. It had long been the subject of rumors that he might join the Saudi Arabian team. Ronaldo reportedly received offers to stay in Europe, but none of them satisfied his requirements, so he decided to accept Al Nassr’s original offer instead.

After having a falling out with the team over a botched summer transfer and a bombshell interview, the 37-year-old left Manchester United upon the mutual termination of his contract in November and has since been a free agent. The club’s official Twitter account tweeted on Friday evening, “The world’s greatest athlete officially signed,” along with images of Ronaldo holding the Al Nassr jersey aloft.

One fan tweeted: “Cristiano Ronaldo securing the final bag before ending his incredible career. Nobody will remember him for his stint at Al-Nassr the same way nobody remembers the final years of Di Stéfano or Maradona. What a ride it’s been.” Another remarked: “Maradona ended his career in style by bringing a Libertadores trophy to Boca juniors, other than the bans he got he ended his career way better than Ronaldo is doing footballing-wise.” While, one wrote, “Unfortunately, he moved to the worst club in Saudi Arabia. It is a shame and a scandal for Cristiano. He destroyed his history with this transfer. He betrayed all his fans.”

Others, however, expressed their displeasure on social media and warned that football might suffer as a result of his alleged move. “Football will be strange if Messi goes to the MLS and Ronaldo goes to Saudi Arabia the following year,” a fan wrote. “Can’t allow that to happen.”

Cristiano Ronaldo is widely regarded as a football legend to ever play the game like anybody else. And due to this, the legendary Portuguese player has been given the chance to sign a free transfer deal with Al-Nassr of Saudi Arabia. And now, since he has reportedly accepted the million-dollar deal, the Suadi team would give him a massive contract worth $200 million annually (through 2025). As a result, Ronaldo could earn an astounding $400 million while playing for Al Nassr.
