C. Ronaldo’s New Club Desire To Sign Ramos, Modric


- Advertisment -spot_img

Football star Cristiano Ronaldo could be joined by two fellow Real Madrid icons in Saudi Arabia with Al Nassr looking to splash even more cash on signing Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric.

Spanish outlet Marca report that Ramos was already on the wishlist of Al Nassr – and had now been joined by their former colleague Modric.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has made the move to the Middle East at the age of 37 following his Manchester United release, with Modric the same age and Ramos a year younger.


With the Spain icon playing a reduced role at PSG since leaving La Liga, Croatia hero Modric is still at the Bernabeu where he picked up a fifth Champions League last season.

The update comes with Modric reportedly refusing a contract extension under Carlo Ancelotti with his current deal expiring in June after a decade at the club.

Ronaldo said he made the switch in order to experience Asian football, despite saying after leaving United that he wanted to play at the highest level.

With Modric refusing to retire from the national side after the World Cup, Ramos could fancy a new challenge after slipping out of Spain contention.

“I am excited to experience a new football league in a different country,” Ronaldo said in Al-Nassr’s statement.

“The vision of what Al Nassr are doing and developing in Saudi Arabia both in terms of men’s and women’s football is very inspiring.

“We can see from Saudi Arabia’s recent performance at the World Cup that this is a country with big football ambitions and a lot of potential.

“I am fortunate that I have won everything I set out to win in European football and feel now that this is the right moment to share my experience in Asia.

“I am looking forward to joining my new teammates and together with them help the Club to achieve success.”
