The most famous unemployed person in the world will probably not remain so for very long. brand announced on Wednesday that Cristiano Ronaldowithout a club since his departure with a bang from Manchester United just before the world Cup, is very close to signing a contract with the club of Al-Nassr, in Saudi Arabia. The figures put forward are completely insane: 200 million euros per year (salary and advertising rights included), for two and a half years.
The rumor of a departure for the great Gulf country had already run last summer, when the question of his future in England arose. This time seems to be the right one. The sign of a certain downgrading, all the same, for the fivefold golden ball 37 years old, since no big European club seems ready to offer, if not the same conditions, at least a salary worthy of his rank.
Ronaldo would join in the Saudi club three old acquaintances of League 1 : coach Rudi Garcia, in office since the start of the season, as well as goalkeeper David Ospina and defender Alvaro Gonzalez. But, before a possible official confirmation, Ronaldo aims for the moment to carry his selection as far as possible in Qatar.
