Star agrees £173M-a-season contract – Chelsea fans to see attacker make £432M move
Chelsea target Cristiano Ronaldo is set to join Al-Nassr after the World Cup after agreeing a £432m contract with the Saudi Arabian club.
A few transfer windows after making a move back to Manchester – Ronaldo is back on the market after having his contract at Old Trafford terminated for a TV interview that he had recently done with Piers Morgan.
That has led to all sorts of speculation and rumours about where he could end up – as a whole host of clubs – including Chelsea – linked with a January move for the Portuguese star.
However – it seems that the Portuguese star is all set to leave top-level football and go where the money is
But the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is in for a huge payday as Marca report that he has now reached an initial agreement to join Al-Nassr.
The report claims that Ronaldo has been offered a two-and-a-half-year contract worth €200m (£173m) per season.
He was on £500,000-a-week at Manchester United – so it will be the last big pay deal for the player.
We all knew that one day Ronaldo would make a lucrative move to Saudi Arabia – the MLS or China – but we did not believe that it would be now.
He has made a big fuss about the fact he is still performing at a top level – he is still scoring goals and wants continue with a Champions League club.
But maybe this is the best thing for the man as it will give him a nice big pay deal before he hands up the boots – so even though he does not need it – take it while the opportunity is there right?
