Ronaldo agreed to move to the Saudi team after receiving the highest salary in history

Spanish newspaper Marca reported that Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo has agreed to join Saudi club Al-Nasr after receiving a tempting offer.

The 37-year-old striker ended his partnership with his former team Manchester United just days before the start of the Qatar 2022 World Cup amid a television interview given by Don in which he was critical of the English club’s management and technical staff.

And according to the newspaper Marka, Ronaldo agreed to the offer of victory and will play for the Saudi Arabia national team starting next January.

The Spanish newspaper indicated that Ronaldo’s contract with Al-Nasr would run for two and a half seasons and he would receive an annual salary of up to 200 million euros.

Marca said Ronaldo would become the world’s highest paid footballer, surpassing Paris Saint-Germain stars Lionel Messi and Neymar da Silva, who earn €75m and €70m per season respectively.

Ronaldo currently competes with Portugal in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
