Al-Nassr are willing to pay over €100 million in order to sign the 29-year-old.

Bruno hit the headlines earlier this month after he admitted that he is considering his future at United at the end of the season.

Bruno has become frustrated by the lack of progress at United, with the team enduring another disastrous season and failing to qualify for the Champions League.

“If you want me to be very honest, if I have to think about not continuing [at United], it won’t be until after the EUROs...” Bruno said on Portuguese TV.

Al Nassr realise that convincing Man Utd to sell won’t be easy but considering the fact Bruno turns 30 this year, a big offer could convince them.

Ronaldo is working directly at trying to convince Bruno to make the move, with the pair enjoying a close relationship from their time together at United and with the Portugal national team.

Ronaldo has played an active role in recruiting players to Al Nassr and the Saudi Pro League in general ever since arriving 18 months ago.

Ronaldo at Al-Nassr

He joined Al Nassr on a free transfer in January 2023 after his contract at United was rescinded and has since scored 62 goals in 66 games.

Ronaldo turned 39 in February but is still going strong and scoring at a ridiculous rate for both club and country.

The Al Nassr star also scored 54 goals in 2023, more than any other player in world football and two more than both Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappe.

Last month Ronaldo hit back to back hattricks for Al Nassr.

Ronaldo now has three hattricks this season in the Saudi Pro League, and 33 goals in total in the league. He is certain to finish the campaign as top scorer in the league.

He will play at Euro 2024 next month together with Bruno. But will they be at Al Nassr together next season?
