Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly wants to leave the Saudi Al Nassr, and wants to depart to Europe once again.

Mundo Deportivo expressed that Ronaldo has not settled well in the Middle East and is already looking for a transfer away from the club.

Ronaldo was unimpressed with the infrastructure in Saudi Arabia, and he feels that it is “very far from modern society.” 

Therefore, the 38-year-old is examining options for a potential return to Europe.

Although the Portugese star scored 13 goals in 17 appearances, Al Nassr's performance declined since the arrival of the football icon. They slipped from the top of the Saudi Pro League to the No.2. In addition, they were eliminated from the King Cup of Champions. It was also reported that he had a fallout with the former coach of Al Nassr Rudi Garcia.

Mundo Deportivo added that if Ronaldo wants to leave Al-Nassr before the end of his contract, he will have to pay a substantial compensation fee to the club. 

In addition, there is a possibility of a four-month suspension from competitive action. 

However, a termination agreement could be discussed and reached with the Saudi club, allowing him to depart without any issues.
