Ronaldo could join Al-Nassr rivals Al-Hilal in the future – Jose Felix
Jose Felix, the editor-in-chief of MARCA, says that Cristiano Ronaldo, the star player for Al-Nassr, could one day play for Al-Hilal, which is Al-rival.
When Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United both decided not to extend his contract in November, he was left without a team to which he could bring his skills. Even though he was one of the most famous people in the world, he had a hard time becoming popular in Europe.
The Saudi Pro League team Al-Nassr took advantage of the chance and moved the ball forward to the region. Even better, he is said to have been promised £173 million a year, which would make him the highest-paid football player in the world. This was done to get him to agree to the move.
Since then, the great Portuguese player, who has scored five goals in four games, has helped the Al-Nassr brand become more valuable. The Riyadh-based team hopes that keeping him there until at least 2025 will help them both on and off the field.
Felix, on the other hand, has made Al-Nassr worried by saying that Ronaldo might soon join Al-Hilal, one of their toughest rivals. He said that Al-legacy Zaeem’s charm would eventually win over the athlete.
Felix said [via MSN] this on the Saudi Arabian TV show SBC Maleab:
Given how long the club has been around, I won’t say for sure that Cristiano Ronaldo won’t wear the Al Hilal shirt at some point in the near future.
Remember that Ronaldo’s contract says he has to play for Al-Nassr until the summer of 2025 when he will be 40 years old. So, Al-Hilal probably won’t be able to buy him from their rivals any time soon.

Before he signed with Al-Nassr, Al-Hilal tried to sign Cristiano Ronaldo
In December, Al-Nassr made a deal for Cristiano Ronaldo with the help of a number of Saudi Arabian government officials. But it’s important to remember that Al-Hilal was interested in hiring him before Al-Aalami.
In reality, Al Za’eem tried to get the five-time Ballon d’Or winner to play in the Middle East during the summer of 2022. Even though the player was thinking about leaving Manchester United, they chose to ignore it.
Because of the transfer ban, Al-Hilal couldn’t show interest in signing Ronaldo again in the future. Ramon Diaz’s team wasn’t allowed to add anyone until Al-Hilal got Mohamed Kanno on board. This was because he broke his agreement with the Mrsool Park team.
Still unknown is whether Al-Hilal will try to steal Ronaldo from their regional rivals. In the meantime, they have been linked to a possible offer for Ronaldo’s opponent, Lionel Messi.
