Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly wants to leave Al-Nassr, and could seek a return to Europe after struggling to adapt to life with the Saudi Arabian club.
The Portuguese superstar shocked the world by signing for Al-Nassr at the end of December, having seen his contract at Manchester United terminated the previous month.
Ronaldo’s two-year deal at Mrsool Park is reportedly worth $215m, which makes him the highest-paid player in the game, but Mundo Deportivo suggests that he has not settled in the Middle East.
The Spanish newspaper claims that Ronaldo is already eager to secure a transfer away from Al-Nassr, having been unimpressed with the infrastructure in Saudi Arabia – which he feels is “very far from modern society”. The 38-year-old will now explore a potential return to Europe, but is also open to alternative options.
Ronaldo has scored 13 goals in his first 17 appearances for Al-Nassr, but they have slipped from the top of the Saudi Pro League table since his arrival, while also exiting the King Cup of Champions.
