Cristiano Ronaldo set to stay with Al Nassr

Cristiano Ronaldo has dismissed rumors suggesting that he has any intention of returning to Europe. Since joining Al-Nassr on a free transfer in January following the termination of his contract with Manchester United, the 38-year-old has been a formidable force in the Saudi Pro League.

With 14 goals in 16 appearances, Ronaldo’s individual brilliance helped his team make a strong push for the league title, finishing just five points behind the eventual champions, Al-Ittihad.

Despite reports circulating about his desire to depart Al-Nassr and make a comeback to European football, Ronaldo firmly asserts his commitment to his current club. Having signed a contract that extends until 2025, he has made it clear that he intends to stay.

During a recent interview, the forward confidently stated, “I am happy here, I want to continue here, I will continue here.” Ronaldo expressed his gratitude for the warm welcome he received and emphasized his dedication to providing an enjoyable experience for the fans through his performances and winning titles.

While adjusting to life in Saudi Arabia has presented its challenges, Ronaldo is adapting well. He acknowledged the differences in training schedules, with sessions taking place in the afternoon or evening, and even at 10 o’clock at night during Ramadan.

Despite these adjustments, he remains unfazed, drawing on his wealth of experience to navigate these new circumstances. Ronaldo appreciates the learning opportunities that come with such experiences, considering them as valuable memories.

He expressed his satisfaction with the enthusiasm of Saudi football fans, describing their passion for the game and their vibrant lifestyle, which has contributed to his happiness thus far.

Furthermore, Ronaldo expressed openness to the idea of his former Real Madrid teammate Benzema and the iconic Barcelona figure Lionel Messi joining him in the Saudi Pro League.

He warmly welcomed them, believing that their presence would enhance the league’s quality. Ronaldo praised the league for already featuring exceptional foreign and Arab players, highlighting the positive impact their talents have had on the competition.
