Cristiano Ronaldo using Real Madrid links to help secure new club Al Nassr another marquee signing
| Last updated
Cristiano Ronaldo could soon be reunited with former Real Madrid teammate Keylor Navas, with Al Nassr reportedly targeting a move.
Ronaldo will play his first game over in Saudi Arabia later this week after joining Al Nassr in a deal that will see him earn an eye-watering £175 million per year.
He's already brought a completely set of eyes on the Saudi Pro League and reports claim that Navas, who shared a dressing room with him for four seasons, could be linking up with him once again.
Al Nassr's first-choice goalkeeper is former Arsenal and Napoli shot-stopper David Ospina but the Colombian is sidelined for six weeks through injury.
And according to MARCA, Al Nassr are keen on Navas and willing to offer him €4 million to sign until the end of the season - though with the view for a longer arrangement.
The Costa Rican's contract is up at the end of the season and he is playing deputy to Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.
He signed for Paris Saint-Germain in 2019 after Real snapped up Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea. With Los Blancos, he and Ronaldo won three Champions Leagues together, as well as one La Liga title in 2016/17.
And when he left for Juventus, Navas suggested the team were not at the same level when they lost to CSKA Moscow in the Champions League in 2018.
"Cristiano left the bar very high at Real Madrid," Navas said.
"You cannot cover the sun with a finger. He made many goals while he was here, but it's already the past and we cannot live in the past."
Ronaldo met up with some Real players and watched one of Carlo Ancelotti's training sessions when they were in Riyadh for the Spanish Super Cup.
He will come against former colleagues Navas and Sergio Ramos, as well as long-time rival Lionel Messi, as he is set to captain an Al Nassr and Al Hilal combined side in an exhibition side against PSG on Thursday.
