Saudi Arabia has reportedly offered Cristiano Ronaldo a £300 million contract. After leaving Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo has a lucrative offer to move to Saudi Arabia on the table, but Portugal forward plans to wait until after the World Cup before making a decision, sources told ESPN.

Al-Nassr is prepared to extend him a 3-12-year deal worth more than $119 million (£100 million) per year.

Additionally, sources have told ESPN that Al-Nassr has said they are willing to pay Ronaldo the equivalent of $19 million (£16 million) in compensation if he had completed the remaining six months of his Man United contract.

While he is in Qatar, Ronaldo, 37, has asked that his representatives not participate in discussions about his future in club football, but sources have told ESPN that discussions about a transfer to Al-Nassr have already taken place.

After agreeing to a “mutual” termination of his contract following his explosive interview with Piers Morgan in which he criticized the team and manager Erik ten Hag, the Portugal captain left Old Trafford without receiving any compensation.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia is eager for Ronaldo to serve as an ambassador for the nation and hopes that the former Real Madrid and Juventus forward’s participation in their domestic league will support a bid to host the 2030 World Cup.

Before making a final decision about his future, Ronaldo will wait for a clearer picture of which clubs are interested and are still open to the idea of staying in Europe.

Portugal’s final Group H match is on Friday against South Korea. They have already advanced to the knockout stages and will play one of Brazil, Cameroon, Switzerland, or Serbia in the round of 16 the following week.

According to sources who spoke to ESPN, Portugal is keeping an eye on Ronaldo’s health ahead of the match against South Korea after he sustained a foot injury during the team’s 2-0 victory over Uruguay on Monday.
