Huge £186 million transfer offer for Cristiano Ronaldo, who will continue to play into his 40s. In his search for his next club, former Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo is said to have received a massive transfer offer from Saudi club Al-Nassr.
The Portuguese only recently left Old Trafford after the Red Devils and he mutually agreed to end the remaining terms of his contract as a result of his explosive interview with Piers Morgan. “Following conversations with Manchester United, we have mutually agreed to end our contract early,” the 37-year-old said in a statement ” I adore Manchester United and the supporters, and that won’t ever change. But now seems like the perfect time for me to look for a fresh challenge. I send my best wishes to the team for the rest of the year and the future.”
Ronaldo is now a free agent for the first time in his career as a result of his departure. Throughout the remaining stages of the World Cup in Qatar, he will undoubtedly be attempting to entice potential employers with his advances.
Given that reports indicate that a sizable offer has already been made to his agent Jorge Mendes, it appears that he has already done that. According to CBS, the veteran would be able to play into his early 40s under a three-year contract from Saudi club Al-Nassr.
Ronaldo’s willingness to travel outside of Europe is hoped to increase following the World Cup in Qatar, for which the club has made an offer worth $75 million (£62 million) annually.
Ronaldo was forced to stay at Old Trafford, and none of the clubs who had expressed interest in him ultimately took action. After United was passed over to lead the line in favor of Erik ten Hag, things quickly started going wrong for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
He had only made ten starts for the Red Devils before the imposed break for the World Cup, the vast majority of them coming in the Europa League, and he had only managed three goals.
He had already received a suspension prior to his explosive interview after refusing to replace an injured player during a Premier League victory over Tottenham Hotspur. His final game for Manchester United was a 3-1 loss to Aston Villa, which he captained.
