The 38-year-old Portuguese soccer legend Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly has no plan to retire from the game soon. Instead, he reportedly wants to stay longer at the Saudi club Al-Nassr.

Ronaldo joined Al-Nassr in January 2023 after his contract termination with Manchester United. He has signed a contract with the Saudi Pro League club that will run until June 2025.

While Ronaldo is set to join his Portugal national team, he has reportedly shown keen interest in extending his contract with Al-Nassr until the beginning of 2027.

Although Ronaldo will be 40 years old in February 2025, the forward is eyeing to play the FIFA World Cup 2026. So, he wants to extend his Al-Nassr contract before his retirement.

The soccer journalist Ali Al-Harbi recently took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to reveal Ronaldo's next plan for his late soccer career.

It claimed that Ronaldo "informed the management of the Saudi #Al Nassr club before traveling to the Portuguese national team camp that he wants to renew his contract until the beginning of 2027 AD."

It also added, "Cristiano wants to play the 2026 World Cup while he is a player for Al-Nassr Club, and then he will announce his retirement from football."

The all-time leading international goalscorer Ronaldo is in great form for Al-Nassr. Since the Portuguese joined the club, he has scored 31 goals in 36 matches.
