Portugese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly told Al Nassr management that he wishes to renew his contract until 2027 with the club.
Ronaldo moved to Saudi Arabia in December 2022, but has taken to life well in the Middle East registering 25 goals and eight assists in 30 games.
The 38-year-old has been made captain of Al Nassr, with his side currently sitting third in the league behind Al Taawoun and Neymar‘s Al Hilal.
According to football journalist Ali Al-Harbi, the striker has told club management that he wishes to extend his stay in Saudi Arabia until 2027.

A post on X released by Al-Harbi read: ‘Cristiano Ronaldo informed the management of the Saudi #النصر club before traveling to the Portuguese national team camp that he wants to renew his contract until the beginning of 2027.
‘Cristiano wants to play the 2026 World Cup while he is a player for Al-Nassr Club, and then he will announce his retirement from football.’
Playing at the World Cup will take Ronaldo to 41 years old, an incredible feat even for such an athlete as the legendary striker.
The 2026 tournament is due to be held in the United States of America, Mexico and Canada.
Ronaldo was benched at the previous World Cup for PSG’s Concalo Ramos, and saw his side knocked out by Morocco in the quarter-finals.
However with Al-Harbi seemingly suggesting Ronaldo will retire from football altogether after the World Cup, these may be the last few years fans will get to witness the superstar at work.
