Cristiano Ronaldo back in Saudi Arabia's sights

A move to Saudi Arabia fell through in the summer, but Cristiano Ronaldo would again have the opportunity to move to the Middle East in winter, according to 90min information.

Al-Hilal wanted to sign Ronaldo back in the summer when he was still under contract at Manchester United and offered the Portuguese international 350 million euros (!) for a move.

Ronaldo turned down the offer in the summer but is now looking for a new club after ending his contract at Old Trafford. Sources familiar with the situation have confirmed to 90min that he has another chance to join Saudi Arabia.

Al-Hilal remain interested in Ronaldo and are preparing another offer for the 37-year-old, while Saudi Arabia club Al-Nassr are also interested in the Portugal international.

The interest comes after Saudi Arabia's Sport Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al-Faisal told Sky News his desire to bring Ronaldo to the Middle East. "Who wouldn't want to play in their league?" he asked. "He's a role model for a lot of young players - him and [Lionel] Messi."

Despite the impending offer, Ronaldo is reportedly wanting to stay in Europe, where he can add to his 140 Champions League goals.

In Europe, Ronaldo's entourage has already been informed that Newcastle United, owned by the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund, will not seek his signature. Chelsea, who were linked to CR7 in the summer, will no longer throw their hats in the ring.

Almost the only option left is PSG...
