After his controversial exit from Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo has officially joined Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr on a two-year contract. This new deal is set to make Ronaldo the highest-paid footballer in history as he will reportedly earn 200 million per season over the next two years.
But now CR7 will be playing in the Saudi Pro League, where, Al Nassr is currently placed second on the table two points behind Al- Shabab. Unfortunately for Ronaldo, his new club isn’t part of the AFC Champions League and hence would want to win the league or Kings Cup to clinch qualification for the continental cup.
