“This is a signing that will not only inspire our club to achieve even greater success but inspire our league, our nation and future generations, boys and girls to be the best version of themselves,” Al Nassr wrote.
The five-times Ballon d’or winner said in a statement that he was “eager to experience a new football league in a different country.”
“I am fortunate that I have won everything I set out to win in European football and feel now that this is the right moment to share my experience in Asia,” the Portuguese added.
Ronaldo had been a free agent after Manchester United terminated his contact following a controversial TV interview in which he unmasked club’s management errors. He also criticized manager Erik ten Hag and the Glazers (club owners).
The 38-year-old’s dream of winning the FIFA World Cup didn’t go well as expected by him and his fans. Portugal got knocked out by Morocco in the quarter-finals which ended Ronaldo’s biggest career ambition.
