Cristiano Ronaldo (38) wants to extend his contract with his team Al Nasr.
This is because I want to participate in the World Cup in which Saudi Arabia participated.
Global sports media ‘The Athletic’ reported on the 10th (Korean time), “Ronaldo wants to stay at Al Nasr until 2027.
Ronaldo told Al Nasr’s high-ranking officials that he would like to extend his contract. Ronaldo will play the national team game in October.
Before leaving for Portugal, I informed Al Nasr that I wanted to renew my contract until early 2027,” the report said.
Ronaldo entered the professional ranks at Sporting CP in 2022.
He caught the eye of manager Alex Ferguson in a pre-season friendly against Manchester United and succeeded in advancing to the Premier League. 토토사이트
He made his Manchester United debut wearing the number 7, a number previously worn by Eric Cantona and David Beckham.
There was a lot of criticism in the beginning for his flashy dribbling, but he soon blended in perfectly with Ferguson’s soccer.
He had a dominant performance in the Premier League and rose to the ranks of the best players in the world. He went beyond Manchester United and the Premier League to conquering the UEFA Champions League.
Afterwards, he left for Real Madrid and challenged to become the best player of all time. He had a huge scoring competition with Barcelona number 10 Lionel Messi, a ‘rival of the gods’.
A lot happened at Real Madrid, but he reached the peak of his career by winning an unprecedented third consecutive Champions League title under Zinedine Zidane.
After saying goodbye to Real Madrid, he went to Juventus and returned to Manchester United.
He seemed like the right person to bring about a revival of fame in Manchester United, which was greatly shaken compared to the Ferguson era. However, he was well past his 30s and his physical abilities did not match coach Ten Haag’s tactics. In the end, he was excluded from coach Ten Haag’s plan, and suffered the humiliation of being excluded from the first team due to his bizarre behavior during the game.
He made a bombshell statement against Manchester United during the ‘2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar’.
While playing for the Portugal national team at the World Cup, it was announced that his contract with Manchester United would be terminated.
Ronaldo wanted to play for a Champions League contender, but no team interested him.
After accepting reality, he accepted Al Nasr’s astronomical offer and took on the challenge of appearing on the Saudi Arabian stage.
Saudi Arabian teams have begun collecting major European players, including Neymar and Sadio Mane.
Ronaldo began touring Saudi Arabia and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) with Mane.
Recently, he started to warm up to conquer the Asian stage by scoring his ACL debut goal.
According to the ‘Daily Mail’, Ronaldo wants to play in the World Cup. On the 5th, the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) confirmed an unconventional plan to host the World Cup.
President Gianni Infantino said: “FIFA and football are coming together in a divided world.
The FIFA Council decided to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the World Cup in the most appropriate way: by holding a World Cup centenary event in South America and co-hosting it with Morocco.
We unanimously agreed to choose Portugal and Spain.”
The opening match will be held at the Estadio Centenario in Montevideo, Uruguay.
Uruguay is significant as the host of the first World Cup. President Infantino also attached great significance, saying, “This is where it all began.”
The first three games of 2030 will be played in Uruguay, Argentina and Paraguay.
As mentioned earlier, Uruguay was the birthplace of the World Cup and is the first winning team.
Argentina finished second in the first World Cup.
Paraguay is the headquarters of the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL).
For this reason, three South American teams were chosen to host the World Cup.
After President Infantino’s announcement, we were able to hear more details through local reports.
Global sports media ‘The Athletic’ said, “The World Cup will be held in Morocco (Africa), Spain, Portugal (Europe), Uruguay, Argentina, and Paraguay (South America).
All six countries will be granted automatic qualification for the World Cup.
For the first time in history, three “It will be held on the continent,” he explained.
He continued, “The opening match will be held in Uruguay, but the opening ceremony is expected to be held in Portugal, Spain, and Morocco.
With the 2030 World Cup being held on three continents (South America, Europe, and Africa), there is a greater possibility that the 2034 World Cup will be held in Asia or Oceania.” .
Morocco is a country that has jumped ship to host the 2026 World Cup.
At that time, the country failed to host the World Cup after being defeated by the North and Central American alliance.
It was planned to host the World Cup in 1994, 1998, 2006, and 2010, but was never selected, and suffered a total of five hardships until 2026.
The International Football Federation did not grant hosting qualifications to Morocco due to a high-risk evaluation in the stadium, accommodation, and transportation.
On the other hand, the three North and Central American countries received high scores in the stadium and won the World Cup hosting with a total of 4 out of 5 points.
President Infantino said, “There was no disagreement in choosing Morocco, Portugal and Spain as co-hosts.
The three continents have united for social and cultural cohesion. This is a message of peace, tolerance and inclusion.
By 2030, six countries will participate.
We welcome soccer teams from around the world.
The two continents of Africa and Europe have shown great solidarity not only in soccer, but also socially and culturally.
We will all celebrate the 100th anniversary of the World Cup together,” he said.
After the first ever World Cup of 3 continents and 6 countries, the 2034 World Cup will follow. Saudi Arabia appears to be a strong candidate.
According to local reports, after the 2030 joint hosting plan was agreed upon, Saudi Arabia immediately put forth an official bid to host the 2034 World Cup.
Saudi Arabia has recently been investing heavily in soccer with the goal of hosting the World Cup.
If Ronaldo plays for Al Nasr until 2027, he will play until he is 42 years old.
I am determined to play until the upcoming 2026 North and Central America World Cup.
After playing in the World Cup, there is a high possibility that he will become a promotional ambassador for Saudi Arabia’s hosting of the World Cup.
