Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly set to complete his move to Al Nassr.
The Portugal forward saw his second stint at Manchester United brought to an early conclusion last month following an inflammatory interview with Piers Morgan, in which he revealed his unhappiness with the Red Devils and their manager Erik ten Hag.
Ronaldo has been a free agent since United terminated his deal shortly after the start of the World Cup, at which he scored one goal and was reduced to the role of substitute for Portugal’s two knockout games.
Having revealed he rejected a move to the Saudi Pro League ahead of this season, Ronaldo had been strongly linked with Al Nassr since leaving Old Trafford.
While Ronaldo denied a deal had been agreed earlier this month, Al Nassr sporting director Marcelo Salazar said the club would remain patient in their attempts to take him to Riyadh – and that approach looks to have paid off.
On Friday, widespread reports suggested Ronaldo had agreed a two-and-a-half-year deal with Al Nassr, where it is suggested he will earn ?62million (EUR69.9m) per season.
Those reports also claimed Ronaldo had already undergone one part of his medical.
Ronaldo’s move will bring the curtain down on his remarkable stint at the top of the European game.
Ronaldo could potentially be available to make his Al Nassr debut on Thursday, when Rudi Garcia’s side host Al Ta’ee.
Al Nassr are second in the Saudi Pro League after losing just one of their first 10 games this season.
