Al Nassr head coach Rudi Garcia says Cristiano Ronaldo will return to play in Europe after his stay in Saudi Arabia.
Ronaldo joined Al Nassr earlier this month after signing a contract valid until the summer of 2025 which will earn him $200 million a year, making him the highest paid soccer player in history.
Sources told ESPN last week that Al Nassr officials are hoping to extend Ronaldo’s contract in the hope that he will one day retire with the club. However, Garcia said he expected the Portugal international to return to Europe before his career is over.
“He is one of the best players in the world. He will not end his career at Al Nassr, he will return to Europe. »
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is yet to score for Al Nassr after three games for the club, the most recent being a Saudi Super Cup semi-final loss to Al Ittihad on Thursday.
