Ronaldo, 39, who currently plays for Saudi Arabia's Al Nassr, has remarkably scored remarkable 56 goals in 62 games for his team in the Saudi Pro League.

Ronaldo left Manchester United in 2022 after an explosive interview with Morgan where the athlete criticised club owners and manager Erik ten Hag.
