The great Cristiano Ronaldo has made the next move in his career.
Ronaldo has signed on with Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr.
And it is quite the deal. The contract runs until June 2025, with the salary starting at $75 million per year and reaching more than $200 million annually with commercial endorsements.

The 37-year-old Ronaldo has an unpleasant parting with Manchester United last month, paving the way for this move.
Al-Nassr are based in Riyadh and play in the Saudi Pro League. The team has the second-most top-flight league titles in the country’s history.
Ronaldo and Portugal advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, losing to Morocco.
Surprisingly, he was held out of the starting lineup and came on as a reserve in that match.
