Cristiano Ronaldo has only been at Al-Nassr for a few months, but he may be ready to abandon the Saudi Pro League.
Cristiano Ronaldo is ready to return to Real Madrid after only a few months with Al-Nassr in Saudi Arabia.
According to a story from El Nacional (opens in new tab) in Spain, the renowned Portuguese goalscorer is already planning a big return to Europe.
CR7’s Manchester United contract was terminated in November after he stated in an interview with Piers Morgan that he had turned down a large offer from Saudi Arabia (opens in new tab).
According to Saudi official media reporting via the Athletic (opens in new tab), Ronaldo earns £173 million ($210 million) every year at Al-Nassr, with £62 million ($75.3 million) coming from playing obligations and the rest from image rights and commercial or ambassadorial partnerships.
Maybe Ronaldo should get used to the ambassadorial pay.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has not offered a playing contract.
“Florentino Perez has guaranteed that [Ronaldo] will not be short of work at the Santiago Bernabeu,” according to the source, “but obviously, he wouldn’t do it to be a player, because he believes that the cycle should be considered closed.”
When attempting to leave Manchester United, Ronaldo touted his services to Los Blancos – and their rivals, Atletico Madrid. However, he could end up at United’s rivals instead.
