They are optimistic the deal will go through by the start of the January transfer window.
Cristiano Ronaldo had his Manchester United contract terminated last month after he gave a bombshell interview to Piers Morgan where he criticised the club and manager Erik ten Hag. The 37-year-old has been looking for a new team since, and now looks set to move to the Middle East.
Al-Nassr are growing in confidence that Ronaldo will choose to join them, and have scheduled a medical, plus booked accommodation for the forward and his advisors, according to CBS Sports.
As well as becoming Saudi Arabian football’s biggest star on the pitch, Ronaldo is also due to have a major role off the pitch if he accepts Al-Nassr’s offer.
He will reportedly be given a role in appointing the team’s manager if he wishes.
Al-Nassr are currently managed by Rudi Garcia, who previously coached Lille, Roma and Marseille during his time in Europe.
Ronaldo has had a difficult end to 2022 after falling out of favour at Old Trafford before departing the club for the second time
