Cristiano Ronaldo’s European football career appears to be over as the 37-year-old, who mutually parted ways with Manchester United in November, signed with Saudi Arabia-based club Al-Nassr last Friday.
Al-Nassr manager, French tactician Rudi Garcia, was in a joking mood during a recent press conference when asked about his new player. The former Olympique de Lyonnais manager stated he also wanted Messi.
“First, I wanted to bring Messi from Doha,” Garcia joked.
The Saudi club might not be getting Messi, but they’re reportedly linked to PSG defender Sergio Ramos, whose contract expires in June.
Al Nassr coach, Rudi Garcia, asked about Ronaldo before the official announcement: "I wanted to bring Messi from Doha."
