According to the newspaper, Ronaldo, who is free to sign for any club after leaving Manchester United, will sign a contract for two and a half seasons, which will include a bonus of around one hundred million euros, in addition to other advertising-related sums, making him the highest paid athlete in the world.

Al-Nassr is coached by Frenchman Rudi Garcia, while former FC Porto player Vincent Aboubakar and former Benfica player Anderson Talisca are part of the team.

Ronaldo had already rejected a move to Saudi Arabia in the summer when Al Hilal submitted a proposal worth a total of 300 million euros.
