Cristiano Ronaldo (Al-Nasr) wants to leave Saudi Arabia in less than a year.
Spanish media ‘El Nacional’ reported on the 2nd (Korean time), “Ronaldo wants to return to Madrid, Spain, where he stayed for 9 years after leaving Saudi Arabia.”
Ronaldo signed a two-year contract with Saudi Arabia’s first division club Al Nasr in December last year.
World-class star Ronaldo drew attention when he chose to go to the Middle East rather than remain in Europe, but instead of transferring, he decided to receive an annual salary of 200 million euros (about 294.2 billion won).
Ronaldo quickly became the highest-paid soccer player in the world. But his life in Saudi Arabia is forcing him to give up a hefty salary.
The media said, “Ronaldo will not be staying in Saudi Arabia any longer,” and “as many expected, adapting to a closed culture is proving very difficult.”
“The language barrier is also a major obstacle preventing Ronaldo from adapting to Al Nasr,” he added.
As the place Ronaldo wants to go immediately, who wants to leave Saudi Arabia, the media picked Madrid, Spain, where he stayed while playing for Real Madrid in the past.
The media said, “Ronaldo’s intention is to return to Madrid, Spain to meet his girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez.” 먹튀검증
Ronaldo tried to move to Atletico Madrid to leave Manchester United last summer, but it was canceled due to strong opposition from fans.
Meanwhile, claims have been made that Real president Florentino Pérez may lend a helping hand to Ronaldo, who wants to return to Spain.
The media explained, “Chairman Pérez can give Ronaldo a job,” and “but he is not recruiting as a player, but he can offer Ronaldo to become a Madrid ambassador or a member of a sports organization.”
