Ronaldo Saudi moved to signal the likely end of the elite club’s career

Ronaldo Saudi moved to signal the likely end of the elite club’s career

Less than two weeks after arch-rival Lionel Messi lifted the World Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo has completed his move to Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr and likely marked the end of his career in elite football.

By agreeing a contract until 2025, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has ended speculation over his future after Manchester United terminated his contract last month.

“I am fortunate to have won everything I set out to win in European football and I feel now is the right time to share my experience in Asia,” Ronaldo said.

Al Nassr described the deal as “history in the making” but is likely to raise questions about Ronaldo’s ambition at this stage of his career.

While Messi finally won the only major trophy that had eluded the two men widely regarded as the best players of their generation, after leading Argentina to the World Cup in Qatar, Ronaldo will play outside top-flight European football for the first time time in his career.
