Cristiano Ronaldo joined Saudi Club

Cristiano Ronaldo, a 37-year-old soccer legend, has signed a hefty two-year contract to play for Saudi Club Al Nassar FC in a deal that has been speculated for weeks. Al Arabiya, a Saudi-owned television network, first broke the story, and it was then confirmed by a post on the Al Nassar FC social media pages showing Ronaldo holding his new shirt with the words:

When the contract was first announced, it was reported by CBS News at the end of November to be worth $75 million annually for three years. Many publications still use that figure today, but practically all of them concur that a two-year deal would bring Ronaldo close to his forties. Some claim that the deal’s final price, including sponsorships, might reach $214 million. The agreement, according to CBS, includes a house in a posh area for the famous striker. Whatever the case, it’s a LOT of money for a player whose lifetime earnings, according to a Forbes estimate from earlier this year, were $1.24 billion, leaving him only behind Tiger Woods as the all-time leader.
