Ronaldo Facilitates Arrival of Premier League Icon to Saudi Arabia

Cristiano Ronaldo is actively persuading Kevin de Bruyne to consider a transfer to Al Nassr for the forthcoming season.

According to Rudy Galetti, the Saudi Arabian club is poised to intensify their pursuit in the upcoming weeks and initiate discussions with the Manchester City luminary.

Galetti also notes that additional Saudi teams may enter the competition to acquire De Bruyne, who is celebrated as one of the Premier League’s most illustrious players.

For several weeks, De Bruyne has been identified as a top acquisition target for Saudi Pro League teams this summer, sharing the spotlight with Liverpool’s Mo Salah.

De Bruyne’s current agreement with Man City extends until the summer of 2025, yet the club is anticipated to welcome bids over £100 million for him in the next summer transfer period.

The question remains whether De Bruyne will part ways with Man City. Approaching his 33rd birthday before the next season’s kickoff, De Bruyne might contemplate a move to Saudi Arabia, having conquered all possible accolades with Man City.

Should he opt for a Middle Eastern stint, he would reunite with former Man City colleagues in the league—Riyad Mahrez, who signed with Al Ahli, and Aymeric Laporte, who made the switch to Al Nassr last summer.
