A new transfer rumor has claimed that a club from Saudi Arabia has submitted a bid for CR7.
An unnamed Saudi Arabian club has offered Cristiano Ronaldo a €300 million package deal to spend two seasons in the Middle East.
That’s according to CNN Portugal. The report claims the club will split the money into three payments. €30 million will go to Manchester United for a transfer fee. €250 million will be divided across Ronaldo’s two seasons as a salary, while the remaining €20 million is for intermediaries.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, remains apart from the Manchester United squad due to family reasons.
The Portugal captain has reportedly asked the club to allow him to leave this summer if a suitable offer comes. Erik ten Hag, however, hopes to keep CR7 for the upcoming campaign. The manager views him as a big part of his plans and recently said in a press conference that the attacker is not for sale.
Other clubs that could reportedly sign Ronaldo include Chelsea, Bayern Munich, and Napoli.
Manchester United, who thrashed Liverpool 4-0 in a friendly on Tuesday, begin their latest Premier League campaign on August 7 at home to Brighton.
