Cristiano Ronaldo creates Real Madrid dream team at Al Nassr
Cristiano Ronaldo has completed a sensational move to Al Nassr, and a couple of his former Real Madrid teammates could now follow after his arrival in Saudi Arabia.
Ronaldo has signed a contract worth €200 million per season with the Saudi Pro League leaders following his release by Manchester United last month, and he said at his unveiling that he planned to lift the level of the sport in the country.
Whilst Ronaldo talked about helping with the men's and women's games in Saudi Arabia, he didn't mention the former Real Madrid teammates that might now follow him to Mrsool Park in Riyadh.

But AL Nassr, who are nicknamed Al-Aalami, or "The International Club", reportedly have their eye on acquiring long-time Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, latterly of Paris Saint-Germain, and midfield Luka Modric, who remains at the Santiago Bernabeu for now.

Ramos and Modric next
"Ronaldo's arrival is still causing a buzz but the Saudi Pro League club are now believed to be keen to follow it up by buying the Portugal superstar's former teammates Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric," report Gulf News.
"The trio won everything there was to win during their tenure together at Real including the UEFA Champions League an unprecedented three times in a row, and La Liga. And it is believed Al Nassr will do everything they can to reunite them at Mrsool Park.

"Money will be no problem to tempt the pair, after all the club is paying Ronaldo a whopping $207 million a year as part of his deal with the club. If Ramos and Modric do join Ronaldo it would be a fairy-tale ending to their illustrious careers."
Ramos and Modric are out of contract with PSG and Real respectively next summer and could be available for a knockdown price in January, although the latter in particular remains an important player with his current club.
