Cristiano Ronaldo reacts to rumours that he is set to sign for Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr



Cristiano Ronaldo has broken his silence on reports linking him with a move to Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr – insisting they are ‘not true’..

The 37-year-old left Manchester United last month after his fractured relationship with club chiefs worsened when he made a number of controversial statements in a TV interview with Piers Morgan.

Since his departure from Old Trafford, speculation has circulated regarding what club Ronaldo will join, with the forward a free agent heading into the second half of the season as it stands.

Reports emerged on Monday that suggested the out-of-contract star was on the verge of agreeing a huge deal with Al Nassr that would’ve seen the five-time Ballon d’Or winner net close to €200million (£173m) per season.

Spanish outlet MARCA reported that Ronaldo – who is currently a free agent – was set to sign a deal with the Middle East outfit at the start of next month.

The outlet claimed that the initial deal was worth close to €100m (£86m) but would’ve been incentivised by further agreements such as advertisement and sponsorship deals.

However, following Portugal’s 6-1 win over Switzerland in the World Cup Round of 16, for which Ronaldo was dropped in favour of hat-trick hero Goncalo Ramos, the veteran superstar rubbished the rumours linking him with a move to the Middle East.
