Cristiano Ronaldo has denied reports linking him with a £173million-a-year potential move to Saudi Arabian club, Al-Nassr.
Ronaldo became a free agent following a mutual agreement with Manchester United to terminate his contract after his controversial interview with journalist, Piers Morgan.
The Portuguese star came off the bench in Portugal’s 6-1 win over Switzerland said during the post-match interview that the report is untrue.
His clubless status has led to intensified interest from clubs with report of a deal reached with Al-Nassr that would see the 37-year-old forward ply his trade in the Middle East.
“No, that is not true – not true,” Ronaldo said.
The five-time Ballon d’Or has also rejected a move to join a club in Australia (A-League).
A-League chief Danny Townsend disclosed the plans to lure Ronaldo to Australia shortly after the 37-year-old’s Manchester United exit but has now confirmed that the Portugal captain has knocked back their offer.
“We had interesting discussions, and there was genuine interest, but it’s clear he has other priorities at this stage,” Townsend told the Sydney Morning Herald.
