Following his untimely departure from Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo has signed with Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr on a free transfer.
History in the making,” the club wrote in a Tweet. “This is a signing that will not only inspire our club to achieve even greater success but inspire our league, our nation and future generations, boys and girls to be the best version of themselves. Welcome Cristiano to your new home.”
Rudi Garcia, a former manager of Lyon, now leads Al Nassr, a team that includes ex-Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina and attacker Vincent Aboubakar of Cameroon.
The Riyadh-based team has won Saudi Arabia’s top division nine times, a total only surpassed by Al Hilal, who have won 18 championships.
