“No, That’s Not True" - Ronaldo Plays Down Deal with Saudi Club Al Nassr

Cristiano Ronaldo has played down suggestions a deal with Saudi club Al Nassr has been reached, claiming such reports are untrue. 

“No, that’s not true - not true,” he said, passing through the mixed zone after Portugal's 6-1 dismantling of Switzerland on Tuesday, where he was only used as a second-half substitute. 

Ronaldo is a free agent after his contract at Manchester United was mutually terminated, in the wake of his interview with TalkTV where he heavily criticised the club. 

United received an offer for Ronaldo from Saudi Arabia in the summer and were willing to accept the bid, only for the deal to eventually fall through.

In the interview with TalkTV, Ronaldo says he rejected the move, which was worth around £305m.
