The manager of the Saudi Arabian side, Al Nassr, Rudi Garcia has said that he could get the best out of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo has no club at the moment after he left Manchester United on mutual consent.
He has been linked with clubs outside Europe with Al Nassr leading the race to sign the 37-year-old free agent.
Ronaldo, however, said he is not interested in moving outside Europe but until he signs for a club, rumours will persist, especially with a deal worth over £400m on the table.
And Garcia has certainly not squashed the possibility that the 37-year-old could join him at Al Nassr.
“I think that any coach would be delighted to train a great star like Cristiano and already in November 2021 I was very close to going to United,’ Garcia told Spanish publication AS.
“I have always thought that the great players are the easiest to manage because they are very intelligent, I verified this with Francesco Totti at Roma.”
The Portugal international scored just one goal for Portugal in the ongoing World Cup in Qatar.
Ronaldo could not help Portugal as the 2016 European championships crashed out of the World Cup last weekend. The 37-year-old was introduced in the second half of the encounter as the Portuguese lost 1-0 to Morocco.
Morocco became the first-ever African nation to make it to the semi-final of the showpiece and would be filing out against France in the second semi-final of the World Cup on Wednesday. The first semi-final between Argentina and Croatia ended 3-0 in favour of the Argentines.
