FROM BUSQ TILL DAWN CRISTIANO RONALDO’S old rival Sergio Busquets has been offered the chance to join Al-Nassr on a free transfer.
But the Barcelona star would only be earning a fraction of Ronnie’s wages in Saudi Arabia.
Sergio Busquets could be set to join Cristiano Ronaldo at Al-Nassr
AS claims Busquets, 34, is set to depart the Nou Camp on a free transfer when his contract expires this summer.
The playmaker has already been linked with a move to David Beckham’s Inter Miami.
But Al-Nassr have now come forward with an offer.
It’s believed the Middle Eastern giants have offered Busquets a two-year deal worth £32million.
And should he accept, the veteran would link up on the field with former Real Madrid foe Ronaldo.
However, the generous fee put to Busquets is still a drop in the ocean compared to Ronnie’s package.
The Portugal legend, 38, became the highest-paid sportsman of all time when he signed a two-and-a-half year contract with Al-Nassr.
Ronaldo will be paid a mind-boggling £173m for his time in Saudi Arabia.
And his presence in the side is already making life more “difficult” for team-mates.
Luiz Gustavo said: “The presence of Ronaldo gives his rivals more incentive to beat the league leaders.
“His presence makes our matches more difficult. The opposing teams try to play their best against him.
“Cristiano motivates everyone. His presence guarantees a great advantage to our group because we learn from him every day, given the great technical and physical qualities he possesses.
“Ronaldo was created for challenges and he always succeeds. He’s already scored his first goal and so he’s taken the pressure off.”
