"Al Nassr FC would like to clarify that, contrary to news reports, Cristiano Ronaldo's contract with Al Nassr does not entail any commitments to any World Cup bids," the club writes on its website.

"His main focus is on Al Nassr and working with his teammates to help the club achieve success," the club continued.

During the World Cup in Qatar, where Portugal went out in the quarter-finals, information was leaked that Ronaldo was ready for Al Nassr from the turn of the year, a 2.5-year contract worth just over two billion kroner per year.

Then Ronaldo denied the information.

Then Ronalo signed and was presented during great celebrations and packed stands.

He will make his debut against Qatar-owned Paris SG on January 19, who then visit Saudi Arabia.

In PSG, the newly crowned world champion Lionel Messi is the ambassador for the World Cup in Saudi Arabia in 2030.

The application for the World Cup 2030 was opened last year and Fifa will make a decision in 2024. The next World Cup in 2026 will be decided for the first time in three countries: the United States, Canada and Mexico, where most matches are decided in the United States.
