Legendary striker Cristiano Ronaldo is anticipated to raise his 175 million pound annual salary by aiding Saudi Arabia’s bid for the FIFA World Cup 2030, raising his income to almost 1 million pound each day.


The seasoned Portuguese forward signed with Al-Nassr last month after leaving Manchester United. Ronaldo signed a staggering two-year deal worth 175 million pounds per season with the Saudi Pro League squad. And that won’t even be the beginning of his revenues from the Middle East.


Ronaldo will be compensated an additional 175 million pounds, according to the news agency AFP, for backing Saudi Arabia’s bid to host the 2030 World Cup.

He might collect 350 million pounds in a year, or just under 1 million pounds per week, if the additional 175 million pounds are paid in a single lump amount.

If he were to endorse Saudi Arabia’s ambition to host the 2030 World Cup, the former Real Madrid footballer would back an alternative bid to that of his own country.

Portugal is preparing to fight for the privilege to host the FIFA World Cup 2030, along with Spain and Ukraine. While Spain has already hosted a World Cup, neither Portugal nor Ukraine have. In this competitive three-continent event, other bidders include Egypt, Greece, and Saudi Arabia.

The claim that Ronaldo gave his permission to help promote the 2030 World Cup was refuted by Ronaldo’s agent. The Portuguese star, along with partner Georgina and the kids, was formally unveiled as an Al-Nassr player last week after landing in Saudi Arabia on a private plane.

Ronaldo’s visit to Al-Nassr was given the go-ahead by Mohammed bin Salman and other prominent Saudi royals, according to AFP. They go on to say that MBS and his brothers support Al-Nassr and aim to publicize their group abroad.

Ronaldo watched his new team’s 2-0 victory over Al-Ta’ee from the stands and the locker room while being suspended. He moved to the Middle East and has been living in a luxurious, opulent “Kingdom Suite” that is very roomy.

Ronaldo will have access to lavish lodging in Riyadh and a private jet, claims the Spanish publication Marca.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner will again miss this weekend’s game against his new team as he serves the second game of his suspension.

Ronaldo is expected to make his Al-Nassr debut on January 22 against Ettifaq. However, it’s probable that he won’t even participate in their opening match after joining their new team. He is expected to take part in an exhibition game alongside Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal players.

They will play a friendly match against Paris Saint-Germain, led by Lionel Messi, on January 19. Messi, 35, agreed to a 25 million pound contract last May to support Saudi Arabia.
