Cristiano Ronaldo has confirmed that he will be staying at Al Nassr for the 2023-24 season. The Portuguese superstar joined the Saudi Arabian club in January 2023, but there were reports that he was looking to leave after only six months. However, Ronaldo has now put those rumors to rest, saying that he is happy at Al Nassr and wants to stay.
“I am happy here, I want to continue here, I will continue here,” Ronaldo said in an interview with Saudi Arabia’s MBC Action. “I am enjoying playing in the Saudi Professional League and I am motivated to help Al Nassr win trophies.”
Ronaldo’s decision to stay at Al Nassr will be a boost for the club. He is one of the biggest names in world football and his presence will help to attract other top players to the club. Al Nassr are currently in second place in the Saudi Professional League. With Ronaldo in their team, they will be confident of challenging for the title in the 23-24 season.
Ronaldo’s decision to stay at Al Nassr will also be a disappointment to some clubs in Europe. There were reports that Bayern Munich and Newcastle were interested in signing him. However, it seems that Ronaldo is happy in Saudi Arabia and he is not looking to return to Europe at this stage.
Ronaldo has scored 14 goals in 19 appearances for Al Nassr since joining the club in January. He has also scored 837 goals in 1,166 appearances for club and country, making him the all-time leading goal scorer in men’s football.
Ronaldo’s decision to stay at Al Nassr is a major coup for the club and it will be interesting to see what he can achieve in the coming season. With Ronaldo in their team, Al Nassr will be one of the favorites to win the Saudi Professional League and they could also challenge for the AFC Champions League.
