After his exit from Manchester United Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d’Or winner, has penned a contract until 2025 with the Saudi club Al Nassr in a deal worth a reported 200 million euros.
According to the report, the Portuguese superstar is expected to face PSG in his debut in Saudi Arabia as part of an exhibition side in a friendly against Paris Saint-Germain, which could pit him against Lionel Messi on January 19.
The Portuguese superstar has been serving a FA suspension for knocking a phone out of a young supporter’s hand following Man Utd’s defeat at Everton in April.
The 37-year-old missed the first game of the Football Association’s two-match ban on Friday.
Ronaldo’s much-anticipated bow is now expected to come in a showcase match with PSG in Riyadh on January 19.
Rudi Garcia confirmed Ronaldo debut against PSG and said , “It [Ronaldo’s debut] won’t be with the Al Nassr jersey. It will be a mix between Al Hilal and Al Nassr,”
Garcia has also indicated his task is to help Ronaldo fall in love with the game again after a turbulent year.
