The two teams vying for Ronaldo are revealed.

Since Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United parted ties, two prospective new clubs have emerged.


Following increasingly public run-ins with Erik ten Hag, which culminated in the Portuguese’s furious chat with Piers Morgan last week, Ronaldo’s second stay at Manchester United lasted only 14 months.


According to Ronaldo, the club has not advanced since his first stint there under Sir Alex Ferguson more than ten years ago, and he claimed to have “no regard” for the Dutchman.


Unsurprisingly, Ronaldo and United broke up not long after, with the club announcing his exit on Tuesday through their official digital and social media channels.


Ronaldo has been connected with a number of teams in recent weeks, including David Beckham’s Inter Miami and Ronaldo’s previous club Real Madrid. However, two of his actual bids have finally been made public.


According to Jose Felix Diaz, a frequent writer to Marca, “Cristiano Ronaldo is torn between Newcastle United and Al-Nassr FC,” as reported by the UtdReport on Twitter.


Saudi switching?

Ronaldo has been mentioned in connection with a Saudi Arabian offer in the past, but few anticipated that it would finally refer to Newcastle, who have been controlled by a group directed by the country’s Public Investment Fund since October 2021.


The six-goal striker Callum Wilson of Newcastle, who is presently third in the Premier League and four points ahead of United in fifth, was selected for England’s roster for the winter World Cup in Qatar.


Although midfielder Miguel Almiron has been their best scorer, record acquisition Alexander Isak, who cost Real Sociedad €70 million, has been injured since moving in during the summer.


Yasser Al-Misehal, the head of the Saudi Arabian Football Federation, previously talked to the Athletic about the possibility of Ronaldo joining their national league.


A player like Cristiano Ronaldo playing in the Saudi league is something we would all enjoy, he remarked.


“I ask myself, “Why not? Even though I’m sure it would be quite costly, in recent years, we have seen our clubs’ income increase. Some prominent players who formerly competed in the Premier League have already moved to the Saudi league.


Now, it would seem that team is Al Nassr, nine-time champs.


Saudi football is in a good mood after their national team defeated Argentina’s Lionel Messi’s squad 2-1 at the World Cup on Tuesday, but if one of their teams beat Newcastle United to Ronaldo, it would still be unexpected.
