Veteran British journalist Piers Morgan has revealed that the former Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, wants to join a Champions League club amid reports linking him with a move to Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr.
Ronaldo became a free agent after his second spell at Man United was cut short.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner was found to be in breach of contract after his explosive interview with Morgan last month.
The Portugal captain appears to be on the brink of signing a lucrative contract with Al-Nassr in which he could reportedly earn €500 million over the course of a two-year deal.
However, Morgan, Ronaldo’s confidante, believes those claims are premature, and the former Real Madrid star wants to join a club in the Champions League to extend his record and legacy in the game.
“He thinks that if he does well at this World Cup, he will get what he really wants, which is a club in the Champions League that extends his record and his legacy,” Morgan told the Daily Telegraph.
“It is not about money at this stage of his career.
“It comes down to a burning desire to play football at the highest level, to break records and win trophies. And he has done that in more countries than any other player in history.”
