Cristiano Ronaldo will see out the two-and-a-half-year contract he signed with Al Nassr.
ESPN reports that sources at the Saudi Arabian club insist there’s no clause allowing Ronaldo to join Newcastle United on loan next season if they qualify for the Champions League.
The reports were labeled "fake."
Ronaldo will be officially unveiled as an Al Nassr player at 7 p.m. local time.
He has become football’s highest-paid player after agreeing to a $75 million-a-year deal.
Ronaldo was believed to be seeking a return to Champions League football, but top European clubs snubbed the 37-year-old after he mutually terminated his Manchester United deal.
It was then claimed Ronaldo only agreed to join Al Nassr with a clause inserted in his contract that would enable him to leave for Newcastle, whose majority owners are the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund (PIF).
The report also incorrectly claimed that Al-Nassr was also owned by PIF.
