After the Qatar 2022 World Cup, and his controversial exit from Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo finally has a new team. Read here to find out the details of a spectacular contract and the possible date of his debut.
The World Cup in Qatar 2022 had a bitter end for Cristiano Ronaldo. At 37, the Portuguese legend knew it was his last chance to lift the one trophy that had eluded him in his illustrious career. Additionally, in one of the greatest football rivalries of all time, Lionel Messi won the tournament with Argentina.
Qatar was very special for Cristiano Ronaldo as he achieved two significant milestones in his career. The first player to score at least a goal in five different editions of the tournament and one of only six players to feature in five World Cups. However, Cristiano did not play for Portugal in the knockout stage and his team was knocked out by Morocco in the quarter-finals. The dream was over.
At the same time, Cristiano Ronaldo was without a team after his sudden departure from Manchester United. No one knew exactly what his future would be after the World Cup in Qatar 2022. A club playing in the Champions League or maybe MLS. Read here to find out what Cristiano’s new club is like.
Cristiano Ronaldo signs with Al Nassr: When is his debut?
Though the details of the contract weren’t revealed, many reports point out that the deal is of $75 million per year until 2025. “The world’s greatest athlete officially signed for Al Nassr”, was the first message from the club of Saudi Arabia. Then, the team congratulated Cristiano Ronaldo.
“History in the making. This is a signing that will not only inspire our club to achieve even greater success but inspire our league, our nation and future generations, boys and girls to be the best version of themselves. Welcome Cristiano to your new home.”
Cristiano Ronaldo’s debut with Al Nassr might be on January 5 against Al Ta’ee or on January 14 when his new team face Al-Shabab. Though Al Nassr play this Saturday with Al Khaleej, it seems complicated for Cristiano to be on the field, but, anything could happen.
