Cristiano Ronaldo is looking forward to a new experience in Saudi Arabia as he hailed Al Nassr’s “inspiring” vision.

Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d’Or winner, completed his move to Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr on Friday.

The 37-year-old forward, one of the greats of the modern era, has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal after joining on a free transfer following his departure from Manchester United in November.

In his inflammatory interview with Piers Morgan, aired shortly before the World Cup, Ronaldo claimed to have turned down a move to Saudi Arabia in the last transfer window.

On his arrival at Al Nassr, however, Ronaldo says he was inspired by his new club’s vision.

“I’m thrilled for a new experience in a different league and a different country, the vision that Al Nassr has is very inspiring,” he said.

“I’m very excited to join my team-mates, and to help the team to achieve more success.”

Al Nassr labelled Ronaldo’s transfer as “history in the making”.

A statement added: “This is a signing that will not only inspire our club to achieve even greater success but inspire our league, our nation and future generations, boys and girls to be the best version of themselves.”
