At Al Nassr’s Mrsool Park, in front of smoke machines and fireworks, Ronaldo was given to thousands of fans. After turning down offers from Europe, North America, and elsewhere. The forward from Juventus, Real Madrid, and Manchester United will participate in the Saudi Pro League. Fans began making their way to the stadium early in anticipation of Ronaldo’s arrival. Throughout the day prior to his introduction. Enormous video screens on the outside walls of the ground envisioned him in Al Nassr’s yellow and blue shirt, close by the words “Hala Ronaldo.”

The raucous chanting of his name could be heard from the 25,000-seat stadium as he eventually made his way onto the field. I want everyone to be content. This is my objective, he stated. After giving an explosive TV interview in which he criticized manager Erik ten Hag and the Glazer family, the club’s owners, Ronaldo had his United contract terminated in November. During the World Cup, which took place in Qatar in November and December, Al Nassr, the nine-time champions of the Saudi Pro League, made an offer to him.

Nevertheless, the deal was not finalized until December 30. On Monday night, Ronaldo flew into Riyadh’s King Khalid International Airport, where he and his family were greeted by fans. On Tuesday, he went to Mr. Sool Park for medical tests. Al Nassr, which is little known outside of Asia, and Saudi soccer are expected to receive unprecedented attention as a result of the extremely ambitious transfer in preparation for a possible bid to host the World Cup in 2030.

The Saudis have shown an increasing interest in soccer with a lot of attention. Despite concerns about “sports washing” and human rights in the oil-rich kingdom, Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund completed the takeover of Premier League club Newcastle in 2021. For Ronaldo, it probably welcomes the shade down on his vocation in world-class club soccer. After United failed to qualify for Europe’s largest club competition, he expressed an interest in moving to a club that competed in the Champions League.

In spite of connections with Chelsea, an exchange didn’t emerge. He also had a bad World Cup, where he was dropped by Portugal for its final two games and then left the field in tears after Morocco beat him in the quarterfinals. This season, Ronaldo only scored three goals for United in 16 games, one of which came from the spot. However, there have been landmarks nonetheless. He scored his 700th club professional objective against Everton in October and turned into the principal male player to score in five World Cups with his punishment in Portugal’s 3-2 win against Ghana in the gathering stage.

After winning seven domestic titles in England, Spain, and Italy together, Ronaldo will try to win a league title in a fourth country. He stated, “I am coming here to win, play, enjoy, and be part of the country’s success and culture.” In November, the English Football Association gave Ronaldo a two-match suspension after he knocked a supporter’s phone out of their hands during a game against Everton in April. At the time of the decision, he had already left United. But the FA said that the suspension would be transferred to any new club.
