Al-Nassr “World Cup” clause to be earned Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi team up

After joining Al-Nassr as a free agent with a whopping $200m salary, Cristiano Ronaldo will reportedly try to help Saudi Arabia win the 2030 World Cup bid by acting as an ambassador.

Lionel Messi realized his World Cup dreams and gave Argentina their third World Cup with a penalty shoot-out win over France. However, another controversial bid is taking shape in Saudi Arabia, where Messi and Ronaldo could soon pursue a different path, this time as Saudi sports ambassadors.

Despite the many candidates, it is still unclear which country will host the 2030 FIFA World Cup. The joint bid by the Argentine Football Confederation and the Uruguayan Football Confederation was the first submitted for the 2030 World Cup.

The second was donated by the English FA along with the Portuguese FA and the Royal Spanish FA, confirming that the two countries will submit a joint Iberian bid to host the World Cup and later the FA of Ukraine would like to join them.

According to Tourism Minister Ahmed Al Khateeb, Saudi Arabia is currently considering a joint bid with Egypt and Greece to host the 2030 FIFA World Cup in a bid to turn things around, with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo serving as faces amid the disagreements between the countries.

“We are considering a bid with Greece and Egypt and we hope that it will be successful,” Al-Khateeb said in an interview in Riyadh.

β€œIn any case, the three countries would invest heavily in infrastructure and would definitely be ready. And I know Saudi Arabia would have built state-of-the-art stadiums and fan zones by then,” he added.

In May, Messi pledged to promote Saudi Arabia and within months the kingdom began to hint vaguely at its 2030 ambitions, which are now gaining momentum after Al Nassr recruited one of the greatest Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ahead of the World Cup, the two legendary players were spotted together at a Louis Vuitton promotional event. So promoting an event in favor of the game will not be a problem for the duo.

After a heated debate about the World Cup in Qatar among fans and ex-players, it will be exciting to see if FIFA will allow Saudi Arabia to reach their goal. But anything is possible when Ronaldo and Messi are involved, which made Saudi hopeful. Al-Nassr “World Cup” clause to be earned Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi team up
