Cristiano Ronaldo 'offered staggering £173MILLION-per-year transfer to Saudi Arabia side Al Nassr' after Man Utd exit | The Sun

CRISTIANO RONALDO has reportedly been offered the chance to become the highest-paid sportsperson of all time by Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr.

The superstar is a free agent after leaving Manchester United last week.


But SunSport understands Ronaldo is still keen to play Champions League football and has not agreed the offer of a two-and-a-half year contract worth £173million-a-year with Al-Nassr, report Marca.

Ronaldo revealed he turned down an incredible £3m-a-week offer to play in Saudi Arabia in the summer, with Al-Hilal believed to have been interested.

Rivals Al-Nassr are now closing in on his transfer, having also fought off reported interest from Newcastle.

Inter Miami were also believed to be interested in Ronaldo with owner David Beckham reportedly holding talks with the 37-year-old.
