Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo has refuted claims he will leave Al Nassr at the end of the season.
In spite of expectations that he would guide his team to success, Al-Nassr finished second in the Saudi Pro League, losing out on the league championship to their bitter rivals, Al-Ittihad.
With rumors circulating that Ronaldo was dissatisfied at his current club, the 38-year-old has been linked with departures this summer, with a transfer to Newcastle United, which is controlled by Saudi Arabia, being mentioned as a possible option.
Speaking after Al Nassr missed on the title, the former Manchester United star said, “But I am happy here; I want to continue here; I will continue here. And in my opinion, if they continue to do the work that they want to do here for the next five years, I think the Saudi League can be a top five league in the world.” He said.
Rumours continue to circulate that more Saudi Arabian clubs are interested in bringing more superstars into the league, with names like Karim Benzema, Lionel Messi, and Luka Modric on the list.
