Cristiano Ronaldo accepts €200M Al Nassr contract

Released Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly agreed a €200m contract with Al Nassr.

The 37-year-old had his Manchester United contract terminated earlier this month, following a tumultuous relationship with club chiefs that only worsened when he made a number of controversial statements in a TV interview with Piers Morgan.

The Portugal international was pushing for a move away from Old Trafford in the summer, but did not get his wish as he was determined to play Champions League football.

The former Real Madrid star rejected a switch to Saudi last summer, but without any firm interest from Europe's elite clubs, he looks set to now make the move.

Ronaldo is said to have agreed a two-and-a-half year deal with Al Nassr worth £172.9million per year that will see him play until the age of 40.

One huge factor for Ronaldo might be that Al-Nassr's backroom staff is predominantly made up of Portuguese, eight of the 12 members.
