Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr contract does not mandate him to support Saudi World Cup bid 

Cristiano Ronaldo reaches 100 goal milestone in Portugal's win against Sweden

Cristiano Ronaldo is not obligated to support any Saudi Arabian World Cup bid as part of his Al-Nassr contract according to the club. 

Saudi Arabia has submitted a joint bid for the 2030 World Cup and were thought to have swooped for Ronaldo to help them in their bid for the showpiece event.

According to Spanish publication Marca, part of the terms in Ronaldo’s eye-watering deal worth £175million per year, with Al-Nassr mandates him to promote the Middle Eastern country’s joint campaign with Egypt and Greece to stage the tournament.

But according to the club, such reports are false as the Portugal international is under no obligation to support the nation in their bid to host the World Cup in 2030.

Al-Nassr took to Twitter to rubbish the claims, insisting that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is only focused on the club.

“Al Nassr FC would like to clarify that contrary to news reports, Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract with Al Nassr does not entail commitments to any World Cup bids,” the short statement read.

“His main focus is on Al Nassr and to work with his teammates to help the club achieve success.”

Meanwhile, since his unveiling, Ronaldo has yet to play his first game for Al-Nassr as he continues to serve his worldwide two-match ban from the English FA for smashing an Everton fan’s phone last year.
