Cristiano Ronaldo has broken his silence about his proposed transfer move to Saudi side Al Nassr.

The veteran striker is currently without a club, following his unceremonious Manchester United exit.

The forward's two-year contract at Old Trafford was ripped apart by the club with a few months still left on it.

Ronaldo rejoined United in the summer of 2021 from Juventus and was expected to see out the rest of his contract with the Red Devils.

However, the Manchester club took a drastic decision in November and terminated his contract, just days after CR7's explosive interview with Piers Morgan, where he took issue with the club's top leadership.

Ronaldo's Man United exit saw him linked with moves to several clubs, with Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Sporting Lisbon among the potential destinations.

But it is Al Nassr who have emerged as firm favourites to sign the Portugal talisman, with reports claiming the 37-year-old has already agreed a deal to join them in January in a deal worth £173m per season.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has now come out to rubbish the reports, with the striker insisting the transfer is not on the cards.

Speaking after Portugal's World Cup win over Switzerland, the former Real Madrid and Juventus forward described the reports as untrue.

"No, that's not true - not true," he told reporters after the game via the Daily Mail.

It now remains to be seen which club he could join ahead of the January transfer window.

Santos on benching Ronaldo

Earlier, Sports Brief reported Portugal head coach Fernando Santos left fans shocked after he benched Ronaldo against Switzerland in the World Cup round of 16.

It was initially believed that Santos decided to drop the superstar after he appeared to sulk, following being subbed off against South Korea.

Santos started Goncalo Ramos ahead of his star player against the Swiss, and the decision paid off as the youngster netted a hat-trick.
