Cristiano Ronaldo is considering a jaw-dropping £344m offer to join Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr on a two-year contract… or Portuguese veteran will have to take a pay cut on his £500,000-a-week wages if he wants to stay in Europe
Cristiano Ronaldo is considering another jaw-dropping offer to play in Saudi Arabia after his contract at Manchester United was torn up.
Ronaldo lost out on £16million in wages when he was dumped by United last week in the wake of his notorious interview with Piers Morgan.
But that figure would be dwarfed by the £344m he could earn at Al Nassr for the next two and a half years, according to reports in Spain.
Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly agreed a £334million deal with Saudi side Al Nassr
Al-Nassr are one of the most successful clubs in Saudi, having won the Saudi league nine times
Al-Nassr play at Mrsool Park, which has a capacity of 25,000, quite a difference to Old Trafford
It is understood that Ronaldo, who told Morgan that he had rejected an offer of more than £300m from Saudi Arabia in the summer, has yet to agree to the move and will make a decision on his future after the World Cup.
The 37-year-old and his agent Jorge Mendes have been looking for clubs in Europe so Ronaldo can play in the Champions League again.
But after it emerged that they met with Bayern Munich earlier this month, the German club’s chief executive Oliver Kahn re-iterated that Ronaldo does not fit into their ‘philosophy’.
Ronaldo must now decide whether to take a pay-cut on the £500,000 a week he was earning at United in the hope of staying in Europe, or accept the riches on offer.
The 37-year-old forward had his Manchester United contract terminated earlier this month
