Cristiano Jr. is set to commence training with the Saudi Arabian club in the coming days.

Romano also shared a quote from the Portugal legend, who revealed, “My son tells me, ‘Dad, hold on a few more years; I want to play with you!’ This move to Al-Nassr is a natural progression for the young talent, as the Ronaldo family relocated to Saudi Arabia earlier this year. Depending on the duration of their stay, Cristiano Jr. may have the opportunity to represent Portugal, Spain, or even Saudi Arabia in the future, as reported by Fannation.
