Al Nassr FC’s sporting director Marcelo Salazar believes patience is the key to the potential signing of Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
Al Nassr, a soccer club based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, has expressed interest in bringing Ronaldo to their team with a reported offer of a humongous £200 million, but the Portuguese superstar is still vying to continue playing in top tier European leagues.
This potential transfer, if it were to happen, would be a “negotiation of enormous magnitude”, as Ronaldo is one of the most famous and successful soccer players in the world, said the club’s sporting director.
According to a report by Diario AS, Salazar spoke about the Ronaldo’s situation and the recent developments around his potential arrival, saying:
“Let’s wait and see how things unfold until the end of the year. As you can see, this is a negotiation of enormous magnitude, not only for the club, but for the country and for world football, and which has to be conducted by higher authorities.”
“What I can say is that Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best in football history. He has always been an example for me as an athlete, for the will he shows to win.”
Former Real Madrid and Juventus striker Ronaldo is a free agent after his controversial exit from Manchester United before the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Rumors of his arrival at the Saudi-based club have been swirling ever since.
This news has caused a stir in the soccer world, as a move to Al Nassr would represent a significant change for Ronaldo. The Saudi Arabian league is not as competitive as the Italian Serie A or the Spanish La Liga, where Cristiano Ronaldo has previously played. However, Al Nassr is a wealthy club and could potentially offer Ronaldo a lucrative contract that could entice him to make the move.
If Cristiano Ronaldo were to join Al Nassr, it would be a major coup for the club. He is one of the most well-known and successful soccer players of all time, having won numerous individual and team accolades throughout his career. His presence on the team would not only boost Al Nassr’s on-field performance, but it would also bring a significant amount of attention and publicity to the club.
