There had been interest from MLS clubs in taking him to the US, however the report adds that their offers ‘didn’t come close’ to match Al Nassr’s extraordinary offer. Lionel Messi looks set to go across the Atlantic as an alternative, with the Argentinian a goal for ambitious club Inter Miami.
Ronaldo is ready to show his back on Europe after being offered a staggering deal by Al Nassr, which can include salary and promoting agreements.
The financial aspect of the deal is assumed to have convinced the Portugal star that he could make a hit of the switch, while his Champions League all-time goalscorer record will remain intact if Messi heads for the US.
He’s currently in Qatar with the national team and will likely be remaining within the Gulf nation for at the least one other week after the Selecao qualified for the knockout stages. And he could soon be moving his possessions to the region if the deal goes through as expected.
