Cristiano Ronaldo Saudi Arabia message

Yasser Al-Misehal, president of the Saudi Arabian Football Federation, has sent a clear transfer message to Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo amid ongoing doubts over his future.

The veteran Portugal international was the subject of plenty of speculation this summer as he missed a large chunk of Man Utd’s pre-season, with several big clubs linked with a possible move for him.

“I like Cristiano Ronaldo as a player and I would like to see him play in Saudi Arabia.”
