The league is on hia­tus for the World Cup and Al Nass­r’s next game is on Decem­ber 16, two days before the final.

Ronal­do is aim­ing to reach the World Cup final with Por­tu­gal and could close the line with sign­ing Al Nassr in January.

The for­mer Unit­ed star has agreed to ter­mi­nate his con­tract with the Red Dev­ils after crit­i­ciz­ing the club in an inter­view with Piers Morgan.

Ronal­do has crit­i­cized the lack of progress at the club since the depar­ture of Sir Alex Fer­gu­son and revealed he does not respect Eric ten Hag.

He also claimed that the Glaz­er fam­i­ly did­n’t care about Unit­ed and were inter­est­ed in mak­ing mon­ey com­mer­cial­iz­ing the club.
