Five-time Balloon d’Or winner, Cristiano Ronaldo, has obviously found joy of life in the Saudi Pro League that he wants to see out the rest of his career at Al-Nassr.

Fans have reacted on X platform upon learning of the reports that the Portuguese captain reportedly told Al-Nassr that he wouldn’t return to any European club again and he would end his career at Al-Awwal Park.

The Portuguese icon signed a two-year-and-a-half-year deal when he arrived at the club in January and Saudi journalist Abdulaziz Al-Osaimi reported that Ronaldo has told Al-Alami about his desire to end his career at Al-Nassr.

The 38-year-old has been the catalyst of monumental change in the Saudi Pro League with European talent following him to the Middle East.

The likes of Karim Benzema, Neymar, N’Golo Kante and many others have all joined him in Saudi Arabia.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo is still proving to be Saudi football’s main protagonist. He has bagged nine goals and five assists in seven games across competitions this season.

It remains to be seen whether the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is eyeing 2024 as his retirement year, that’s when his current contract with Al-Nassr is set to expire but he could now be considering extending that deal.

Ronaldo insisted earlier this summer that he wouldn’t be returning to Europe.

“I’m 100% sure I won’t return to any European club. I’m 38-years-old. European football has lost a lot of quality. The only valid one and still doing good is the (English) Premier League. They’re way ahead of all the other leagues,” he was quoted by Reuters.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s reported decision to remain with Al-Nassr has gone down well with fans, particularly those of the Saudi Pro League.

One fan reckons he’s set to leave a legacy in the Middle East: “Ronaldo’s final chapter: A desert legend in the making! It’s wonderful to hear that Cristiano Ronaldo plans to retire with Saudi Al-Nassr. He’s had an incredible career, and his fans around the world will surely cherish these moments.”

Another fan thinks Ronaldo is still keeping his rivalry with Lionel Messi in mind: “He found that league easy to score. His aim is to stay ahead of Messi in terms of goals.”
