Cristiano Ronaldo turned down the sky-high offer. The president of the federation is still counting on the transfer

The president of the Saudi federation, Yasser Al-Misehal, hopes that Cristiano Ronaldo will soon join his home league. The activist assures that the local clubs will meet the high demands of the Portuguese star, which they tried to satisfy during the last window.

Cristiano Ronaldo, after an emotional summer transfer window, finally stayed at Manchester United, where he is currently going through a difficult period. His future still raises question marks, which promise interesting months.

The 37-year-old, despite his great achievements and undoubted marketing power, did not enjoy any particular interest on the market. The footballer’s services were offered to European hegemes, including Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, but in the end neither team started specific talks on the matter, leaving the unhappy Portuguese man at Old Trafford.

Ronaldo is currently trying to convince the world that he is fully focused on playing in the red jersey, but his attitude on the pitch presents a completely different picture. The Real Madrid legend is clearly abandoned, which is exacerbated by the precarious place in Erik ten Haga’s squad.

In the summer of next year, the contract linking the two parties will expire, so CR7 will be given the opportunity to look for an employer from the role of a free agent. In this situation, Yasser Al-Misehal – President of the Saudi football federation sees a chance for a surprising engagement.

Interestingly, according to reports, Sporting’s alumni received a fabulous offer from Al-Hilal at the end of the last mercato. The most popular team from the kingdom offered the striker, note, 2.3 million euros … a week. The athlete rejected the advances of the Saudis, thereby nipping negotiations in the bud. However, the failure did not result in the resignation of the head of the local football.

– We would like a player like Cristiano Ronaldo to play in our league. It would be very positive and it would be great news. We all know the achievements and records of Cristiano Ronaldo, who, apart from being a great footballer, is also a great authority for many – said the president in an interview with “The Athletic”.

Al-Misehal assures that the star’s high contract would not be a problem for the local teams, which for years have been spending exorbitant money on the salaries of mostly foreign players.

– I’m sure it would be a very expensive deal, but we have clubs that have increased their revenues in recent years. We saw some great players who played in the Premier League come to Saudi Arabia. I like Cristiano Ronaldo and would like to see him play here, he said.

The 37-year-old has a terrible start to the campaign. So far, in seven matches, he has not been able to find his way to the opponent’s goal, creating for himself very few situations.
