Newcastle United have refuted claims that there is a Champions League clause inserted in Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract with Saudi Arabia club Al-Nassr, that will allow him to join the Magpies if they qualify for Europe’s biggest competition.

Reports coming out of Saudi Arabia have moved fast to quench all suggestions that the Portuguese star will only be at the club for a season and head back to England, with some describing the report as fake.

Reports claim Ronaldo will become the World’s highest-paid footballer after signing a two-year-deal worth around £67million a year. He mutually terminated his contract with Manchester United during the World Cup and even though there had been suggestions he would be heading to a European club, Ronaldo decided to move to Saudi Arabia.

Having signed the deal with Al-Nassr, reports in Spain claimed Newcastle United had an option to bring him back to Europe but LondonWorld sources have denied these reports while club sources in Saudi Arabia have said Al-Nassr is not owned by PIF.

Cristiano Ronaldo, considered one of the greatest players of all time, will be playing in the Arabian peninsula for the first time in his career and even though he turns 38 next month, many are still clinging on to the hopes of seeing him back in Europe before he hangs up his boots.
