  • The deal is believed to be worth more than 200 million euros
  • The 37-year-old had been a free agent after leaving United in the wake of his controversial interview with Piers Morgan

The homogenous statement stems from Ronaldo's move to Saudi Professional League side Al Nassr.

Ronaldo inked a mouthwatering two-year deal with the nine-time Saudi champions following his acrimonious exit from Manchester United in November.

According to them the Portuguese star's switch to the Gulf region is a signal of his end times as a footballer, per Daily Mail.

A devout Manchester United fan, @markgoldbridge tweeted:

"Ronaldo forcing his way out of United to sign for Al Nassr is just very very sad. Clearly thought he'd get a decent club elsewhere and has ended up accepting he's finished."

@Desmund_Oris made a mockery of Ronaldo's move to Al Nassr with a Messi dig:

"They said Messi is playing in the farmers league, now Ronaldo would play in a league that only exists on paper who is finished now?"

@iLatif_ added:

"Ronaldo fans will be watching the Saudi Arabian league. Finished man."

@Ifeme_KD argued:

"Ronaldo fans should just accept their goat is finished and stop using his age as an excuse. Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva are still dominating at 41 and 38 years."

@UgoOsinobi joined the bandwagon to tag CR7 as finished:

"It's now been made official. Cristiano Ronaldo is finished!
