FIFA bans Ronaldo’s club Al-Nassr over Ahmed Musa transfer
FIFA has sanctioned Cristiano Ronaldo’s Saudi Arabian club, Al-Nassr, because of an issue involving Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa.
The world football governing body has now banned the club from registering any new signings going into the new Saudi Pro League.
Al-Nassr has failed to pay Leicester City the money they owe them over Musa’s transfer.
Musa signed for the Saudi Arabian Pro League side in a €16.50 million deal in 2018, shortly after impressing at the World Cup in Russia.
While the Knights of Naja have paid the transfer fee, they have yet to pay the add-ons, despite The Court of Arbitration for Sport's (CAS) ruling.
According to Ben Jacobs, Al-Nassr was ordered to pay the Foxes €460,000 in performance-related add-ons.
However, the Saudi Arabian giants have yet to obey CAS’ ruling, forcing FIFA to ban them from registering new players ahead of the new season.
