A provision in Ronaldo’s contract with Al-Nassr, the Saudi Arabian club he has joined, explains this intriguing turn of events. If Newcastle United, who are now third in the Premier League points standings, qualify for the upcoming edition of the UEFA Champions League, Cristiano Ronaldo may return to Europe for yet another stay.
Spanish media sites, notably Marca, are reporting that the intriguing turn of events is the result of a provision in Ronaldo‘s contract with Saudi Arabia club Al-Nassr, which he signed last week. When the English club Newcastle was purchased by a public investment fund funded by Saudi Arabia in October 2021, the club became part of the Premier League.
The club has been on an upward trend since the acquisition. Despite a dismal 11th-place finish in 2021-22, Newcastle is currently in the thick of the fight for a Champions League slot and a place in the league’s top four.
The clause in CR7’s contract allowing him to play for an English club on loan is a crucial part of the deal. An article in the Spanish publication Fichajes predicted that this will occur during the upcoming season. By paying Ronaldo nearly $200 million per year, the Saudi club Al-Nassr has become him the highest-paid footballer in history.
Just before the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, Ronaldo has declared a free agent after being released by his old club Manchester United. His criticism of the club and its current manager, Erik ten Hag, in an explosive interview with British journalist Piers Morgan led to his dismissal, which occurred a few days later.
His World Cup performance was lackluster as well, and many people think it was his last major tournament appearance ever. In Portugal’s 0-1 quarterfinal loss to Morocco, Ronaldo spent much of the game on the bench until coming off as a substitute late in the game.
The first time Ronaldo plays in Asia, he’ll be looking for a big showing. Fans have been showing him nothing but love and respect in anticipation of his first game for Al-Nassr, but he has yet to put his mark on the sport as a modern great.
This unexpected development is explained by a clause in Ronaldo’s contract with Al-Nassr, the Saudi Arabian club he has recently joined. Cristiano Ronaldo might extend his stay in Europe if Newcastle United, currently third in the Premier League points standings, qualifies for the 2018 edition of the UEFA Champions League.
