Cristiano Ronaldo will make his debut for new Saudi club Al-Nassr on January 22


Cristiano Ronaldo normally makes his debut for his new employer Al-Nassr in the Saudi league on January 22 against Al-Ettifaq. A source close to the club told the French news agency AFP on Saturday.


37-year-old Ronaldo can officially play for his club after the contract of Cameroon striker Vincent Aboubakar was broken to comply with the maximum number of eight foreign players.

CR7 first has to serve one of the two matchday suspensions imposed on him at Manchester United in the Premier League. As a result, he was not there in the 2-0 win against Al Taee (January 6) and he must also miss the confrontation with Al Shabab (January 14).

Ronaldo signed for Al-Nassr until 2025 and will collect about 200 million euros on an annual basis. Last Tuesday, 25,000 spectators officially welcomed the Portuguese superstar to Mrsool Park in the capital Riyadh.

His arrival meets the will of the local authorities to boost the championship’s prestige. Saudi Arabia would also like to join Greece and Egypt as a candidate for the organization of the World Cup in 2030.
