Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly asked his new club Al-Nassr to sign former Real Madrid defender Pepe.

Ronaldo completed a stunning transfer to the Saudi Arabian club at the end of December 2022, ending weeks of speculation that surrounded his future.

According to the Sun, the move saw the 37-year-old become one of the world's richest sportsmen, with his deal with the Asian club said to be worth a cool £173million-per-year.

And reports suggest that the former Manchester United forward may even have an influence on the squad as a whole in the coming years.

Marca reports that Ronaldo is using his pull to demand the signing of his compatriot Pepe. The 39-year-old is now one of the priority transfer targets for the Saudi Arabian club.

Ronaldo and his international teammate played together at the Santiago Bernabeu for eight years. They won two La Liga trophies and three UEFA Champions League titles three times, per Daily Express.

Fans slam Ronaldo

Meanwhile, football fans across the micro-blogging App, Twitter, have expressed their disappointment with Al-Nassr's decision to part ways with Vincent Aboubakar.

Aboubakar, who scored an iconic goal at the 2022 World Cup, was expected to form a lethal partnership with Ronaldo following the latter's move to the Middle East.

However, the supposed partnership has hit a snag with Al-Nassr opting to part ways with the Cameroon captain in order to make room for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Amid the ongoing situation at Al-Nassr, many football fanatics, particularly on the African continent, took to social media to register their displeasure with Aboubakar's exit.

Aboubakar sacked for Ronaldo

Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr have reportedly terminated Vincent Aboubakar's contract, Sports Brief earlier reported.

Aboubakar shone for Cameroon at the 2022 World Cup as he captained his country and scored two goals in three matches.

But in a twist of fate, the 30-year-old has been brutally sacked in order to pave way for the registration of Cristiano Ronaldo, who was unveiled by the club earlier this week.
