Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has provided two major reasons Cristiano Ronaldo moved to Saudi Arabia to continue his football.
According to him, the Portuguese superstar moved to Saudi Arabia because the country is working to improve its football.
Secondly, the former Chelsea goalkeeper pointed out that Al Nassr wants to win the Saudi League title.
Ronaldo recently completed a transfer to Al Nassr for a reported fee of €200 million per year.
The 37-year-old Portugal international had his Old Trafford contract terminated after he gave an explosive interview to TalkTV’s Piers Morgan shortly before the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
He is now the highest-paid sportsperson in the world with his Al Nasser deal and will make his debut any time soon.
Courtois, a former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper, also believes that the Saudi Arabian club roped in Ronaldo to win the Saudi Pro League title.
Speaking about the arrival of someone like Ronaldo in Saudi Arabia, Courtois told reporters on Tuesday, “Cristiano Ronaldo? Saudi Arabia wants to improve in sports; we’ve seen how they did against Argentina at the World Cup.
“I think Al Nassr got Cristiano Ronaldo to win the league,” he continued.
