- An unnamed Saudi Arabian side have moved to make 37-year-old Ronaldo the highest player in the world
- The proposal follows Chelsea and PSG turning down the opportunity to sign the Portuguese legend
- United continue to maintain the player is not for sure, whilst Ronaldo misses pre-season due to “personal issues”
Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly mulling over a £250m mega deal from an unnamed Saudi Arabia Club.
The unsettled star is still yet to report for pre-season training as he looks to force a move out of Manchester. As reported earlier this month by Best Eleven, the Portuguese attacker is keen to change clubs due to his current side’s lack of ambition in the transfer market, and his willingness to compete for major honours in the twilight of his career.
As reported by the Daily Mail, Ronaldo is being offered an eye-watering £105m-per-season over a two-year contract with United receiving a transfer fee of around £25m. The un-named Saudi club’s proposal would comfortably make Ronaldo the highest paid player in the world, whilst at 37 the contract would surely be the attacker’s last.
The offer follows a number of sides distancing themselves from purchasing Ronaldo. European heavy weights Chelsea and PSG have both turned down the chance to sign the attacker, with the player’s contractual demands limiting his next destination.
Manchester United still maintain the player is not for sale despite his continued absence, with manager Ten Hag confirming the club’s stance hasn’t changed after their recent victory over Liverpool in Bangkok, Thailand:
“We are planning for Cristiano Ronaldo for the season and that’s it. I’m looking forward to working with him. Cristiano is not for sale. He is in our plans and we want success together.”
