Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Al-Nassr in 2023 was met with some surprise, but the 38-year-old has since proven his worth with a remarkable 31 goals in 34 appearances for the Saudi Arabian club. Now, it seems that Al-Nassr is keen to keep the Portuguese superstar for even longer.
According to recent reports, Al-Nassr is already in talks with Ronaldo’s representatives about extending his contract beyond its current expiry date of June 2025. While Ronaldo is already earning a staggering €200 million per season, it seems that the club is willing to offer him an even more lucrative deal to keep him in Saudi Arabia.
It’s not hard to see why Al-Nassr is so keen to hold on to Ronaldo. Despite his age, he remains one of the most talented and hardworking players in the game, with a fierce determination to win and a seemingly endless supply of goals. His presence on the pitch is a huge boost to the team, and his popularity off the pitch has helped to raise the profile of Saudi Arabian football around the world.
Of course, it’s not just about the money. Ronaldo has spoken publicly about his love for Saudi Arabia and his happiness at playing for Al-Nassr. He has also continued to perform at the highest level for the Portuguese national team, proving that age is just a number when it comes to his footballing ability.
While some may have doubted the wisdom of Ronaldo’s move to Al-Nassr back in 2023, it’s clear that he has found a happy home in Saudi Arabia. With the club eager to keep him on board for the long term, it seems that Ronaldo’s remarkable career is far from over.
