There had also been rumors earlier about the Portuguese ace leaving Al-Nassr for a European club. However, according to recent reports, Ronaldo has no intention of moving to Europe again.
As reported by @centregoals, Cristiano Ronaldo has let Al-Nassr know about his intentions to end his soccer career there. Ronaldo, who turned 38 in February this year, has reached the twilight of his career.

Ronaldo, however, knows that it’s nearly time to hang up his boots. Speaking to the media in the mixed zone after the match, Ronaldo admitted that he is trying to continue playing for as long as he can.
The Portuguese skipper said, “I will continue until my legs say, Cristiano, it’s finished.” Ronaldo’s recent update, however, is bound to leave his fans heartbroken.
Cristiano Ronaldo has no plans of retiring from international soccer
While returning to Europe might not be in Cristiano Ronaldo’s plans anymore, the 38-year-old soccer icon is continuing to play for his national team. After Portugal’s debacle in the FIFA World Cup 2022, many expected that Ronaldo would announce his retirement from international soccer. However, the ex-Manchester United star wants to keep on playing for Portugal.
When asked about his future in the national team, Cristiano Ronaldo has confirmed his intentions of playing in the upcoming Euro 2024. Ronaldo, who recently celebrated his 200th cap with Portugal, has scored 123 goals, a record in international soccer. However, while fans will surely get to see the five-time Ballon d’Or-winner in action next year, Ronaldo is yet to offer an update about his participation in the FIFA 2026 World Cup.
