- Cristiano Ronaldo has been told he would make a good back up striker to Vincent Aboubakar
- Famous fast food restaurant KFC aimed the dig at the striker who is currently clubless
- Ronaldo has been rumored to have agreed to a deal to move to Saudi Arabia
Fast food chain restaurant KFC has aimed a brutal dig at Cristiano Ronaldo as his search for a new club continues. Ronaldo is currently clubless following the termination of his contract by Manchester United last month.
His contract was terminated after he did a tell-it-all interview with Piers Morgan where he dropped some explosive allegations about the club.
He is currently focused on Portugal's World Cup campaign but in January, he will have to get a new club given that he has expressed his desire to keep going.
Ronaldo to Al Nassr
One of the reports have indicated that he has agreed to join Saudi Arabia club Al Nassr in a huge deal. The details are still scanty, but it is believed the Portugal captain will agree to the move.

KFC has now mocked Ronaldo by telling him he would be a good back up striker to Cameroon captain Vincent Aboubakar. Aboubakar plies his professional trade with the club and despite Cameroon's elimination from Qatar, he had a decent World Cup tournament.
The 30-year-old scored twice, most memorably against Brazil. His goal scoring prowess is not in question but comparing him to Ronaldo could be far-reaching.
Ronaldo is often regarded as one of the best players in the world alongside Lionel Messi. His move to the Middle East would certainly have a major ripple effect despite his recent loss of form.
Portugal play Switzerland in the round of 16. Ronaldo will be keen on helping the Euro 2016 winners to the World title before thinking about his future.
But in the meantime, the shots have been fired by KFC.
Ronaldo in talks with Saudi giants
Sports Brief had earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly agreed a deal to join Saudi giants Al Nassr after the 2022 World Cup. The veteran striker is currently without a club after his two-year contract was terminated by Manchester United back in November.
Ronaldo's deal was ripped apart with a few months left on it following his controversial interview with British journalist Piers Morgan.
It was earlier projected that the 37-year-old would continue playing at the highest level despite his advancing age.
