Ronaldo wanted to go to a Champions League club but couldn’t find one and stayed in Manchester. CR7 has since terminated his contract with United and wants to finally find a new club in the upcoming winter transfer window. Newcastle United and al-Nasr are said to be on it – but al-Hilal hasn’t forgotten the 37-year-old either.

As ‘Sky Sports’ reports, the 18-time champion is about to submit a new deal. Saudi Sports Minister Abdulaziz bin Turki Al-Faisal says: “Who wouldn’t want to play in their league? He’s a role model for a lot of young players – him and Messi.” Whether Ronaldo’s attempt at flirting will meet with approval will probably be seen after the World Cup at the earliest.
