Cristiano Ronaldo, who has wanted to leave Manchester United since this summer, was unable to do so during the recent transfer window. But the Portuguese will think about it for the next transfer market, in January 2023. They are eager to compete in the Champions League, where the Golden Ball is tracked down five times by a strange country.
in an interview in the athleteThe head of the Saudi Federation, Yasser Al-Mishal, confirmed that the Middle East Championship hopes to attract the Lusitani star soon: “It is currently not possible because the transfer window is closed, but I would very much like to see a player like Cristiano (Ronaldo) play in the Saudi League. (…) This will be great news for everyone. (…) I am sure that everyone knows Cristiano’s achievements. And his records, he’s a great model. (…) It would certainly be a very valuable deal, but our clubs have had higher and higher revenue in recent years. I appreciate him as a player and would like to see him play in Saudi Arabia.” Yasser Al-Mishal concluded.
Saudi Arabia or Chelsea?
This day was revealed by CNN Portugal That Cristiano Ronaldo refused, during the last transfer period, an astonishing approach to the Saudi club Al Hilal. The latter offered a two-season contract to the Portuguese with a salary of 119.6 million euros annually. Always ambitious, Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t just want to play for money and still hopes to join a club that plays in the Champions League, while the former Real Madrid striker plays in the Europa League for Manchester United this season.
Fortunately for Cristiano Ronaldo, one of Europe’s top clubs will want it: Chelsea. The owner of the American Blues, Todd Boelly, wants to secure the services of the Portuguese during the next transfer period, after his failed attempt to persuade his former coach, Thomas Tuchel, to recruit Cristiano Ronaldo during the summer transfer period. Without avail.
