Ronaldo ‘set for Al-Nassr medical’
Al-Nassr have reportedly scheduled a medical for Cristiano Ronaldo and club chief Marcelo Salazar has confirmed that they are in talks to sign him in a huge deal.
There is plenty to discuss for both the club and the 37-year-old with Salazar saying it’s a “negotiation of enormous magnitude.”
Ronaldo supposedly has a £173million-a-year offer on the table, but SunSport understands he is yet to decide whether to join the club or not.
Al-Nassr seem confident that the transfer is going to happen, even booking a medical for Ronaldo and accommodation for his representatives, according to CBS Sports.
They claim the club are optimistic a deal could be finalised for the opening of the January transfer window.
The formalities have supposedly been sorted and Ronaldo would be handed a big role in terms of running Al-Nassr and in Saudi Arabia’s potential bid to host the World Cup in 2030.
Club chief Salazar told Flashscore: “I’m not allowed to say yes or no. Let’s wait and see how things unfold until the end of the year.
“This is a negotiation of enormous magnitude, not only for the club, but for the country and for world football, and which has to be conducted by higher authorities.”
