Cristiano Ronaldo has put pen to paper on a contract with Saudi Arabia's Al Nassr.
The 37-year-old will earn an eye-watering £175 million a year.
Ronaldo left Manchester United in November after his contract was terminated with six months left on it.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is now set to continue his career in the Middle East.
According to Marca, Ronaldo’s contract is for seven years, and he will play for two and a-half years before taking up an ambassadorial role.
His decision to move to Saudi Arabia effectively ends his career at the top level. It is thought Ronaldo had been hoping to secure a switch to a Champions League club, but it never materialized.
It has been claimed that part of his role as an ambassador will be to help Saudi Arabia’s joint bid with Egypt and Greece to host the 2030 World Cup.
