The Saudi Government Released News About Ronaldo's Deal With Al-Nassr.

Cristiano Ronaldo's move to Al-Nassr is reportedly backed by the Saudi government.

The Portugal international has been looking for a new club since his Manchester United contract expired, according to an interview with Piers Morgan on TalkTV.

Ronaldo has been widely linked with a move to Saudi Arabia, and a recent report said he is close to reaching a seven-year deal with Al-Nassr.

According to journalist Ben Jacobs, the offer has the support of the government, whose involvement could increase Ronaldo's earning power.

Aspects of the deal are said to remain in place even if Ronaldo leaves the club, with the government looking to use Ronaldo as part of its bid for the 2030 World Cup.

They also want to use Portugal's international image rights to promote a new 'big city' called NEOM, which is slated to host the 2029 Asian Winter Games.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi has reportedly reached a verbal agreement to sign a new contract with the Ligue 1 champions.

The 35-year-old is now set to become a free agent at the end of the season, having signed a two-year deal with Les Parisiens after joining from Barcelona last year.

Messi initially struggled to adapt to Paris, but the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner has enjoyed a renaissance under Christophe Galtier this season.

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has not hidden his desire to sign a new contract with Messi, who recently won the World Cup with Argentina in Qatar.

Talks between Messi and PSG have stalled as the striker focuses on his World Cup exploits, but journalist Fabrizio Romano has now reported that the two sides have reached a verbal agreement.

Romano added that PSG and Messi have yet to finalize the contract extension and salary of the Argentina international star, but he will sit down with Al-Khelaifi and football consultant Luis Campos to resolve the details soon.
