Al-Nassr on Tuesday night denied reports that they made Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo a promise to back a 2030 World Cup bid in his contract.
Newsbreak.ng reports that Al-Nassr refuted talk that Ronaldo had been paid an extra €200 million ($214m/£177m) to serve as an ambassador for Saudi Arabia’s 2030 World Cup bid.
Ronaldo is believed to be the world’s highest-salaried athlete of all-time with his new Al-Nassr contract, which materialised after he left Manchester United. He is yet to make his debut for the Saudi Arabian side, but watched on as they beat Al-Tai recently.
“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,” wrote the club.
“His main focus is on Al-Nassr and to work with his teammates to help the club achieve success.”
