Saudi Arabia has reportedly offered Cristiano Ronaldo a £300 million contract.
After leaving Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo has a lucrative offer to relocate to Saudi Arabia on the table, but the Portugal striker plans to wait until after the World Cup before making a decision, sources informed ESPN.
Al-Nassr is prepared to extend him a 3 ½ year deal with annual compensation of more than £100 million.
According to sources who spoke to ESPN, Al-Nassr has said they are willing to pay Ronaldo the equivalent of £16 million in compensation for the income he would have received had he completed the remaining six months of his Man United contract.
What sources say
Ronaldo a £300 million contract.
While he is in Qatar, Ronaldo, 37, has asked that his representation not participate in discussions about his future in club football, but sources have told ESPN that discussions about a transfer to Al-Nassr have already taken place.
Termination of contract
After consenting to a “mutual” termination of his contract following his controversial interview with Piers Morgan inside which he attacked the team and management Erik ten Hag, the Portugal captain left Old Trafford before receiving any compensation.
What does Saudi Arabia look for?
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia is eager for Ronaldo to serve as such an ambassador for the nation and hopes that the former Real Madrid and Juventus forward’s participation in their local league will support a bid to host the 2030 World Cup.
Before making a definitive choice about his future, Ronaldo will wait for a fuller picture of which teams are intrigued and remain open to the possibility of staying in Europe.

Portugal’s final Group H match is on Friday against South Korea. They have also already advanced to the knockout phase and will play one of Brazil, Cameroon, Switzerland, or Serbia for the round of 16 the following week.
