Cristiano Ronaldo has explained why he decided to join Al Nassr and leave Europe.
On Friday, it was revealed that the 37-year-old would be joining the Saudi Arabian team.
During the course of his two-year contract, Ronaldo will earn $175 million yearly.
“I am fortunate to have accomplished what I set out to accomplish in European football, and I feel that the time is perfect to discuss my experiences in Asia at this point.
Ronaldo remarked, “I am excited to join my new teammates and work with them to help the Club succeed.
It was thought that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner was eager to continue playing at the highest level in Europe.
After his contract at Manchester United expired in November, Ronaldo was especially eager to sign with a Champions League team.
