After Portugal’s World Cup exit in December, Ronaldo visited Real Madrid’s Valdebebas training facility for the first time since leaving the team for Juventus in 2018. This sparked rumors that he would be going back to the team where he spent more than ten years as a player.
Ronaldo allegedly waited more than 40 days for a response from Real Madrid before deciding to sign with Al Nassr.
Ronaldo was a free agent after Manchester United cancelled his contract following an inflammatory TV interview in which he insulted the club’s owners and manager Erik ten Hag after being frequently benched and even briefly suspended by the team.
