AC Milan can’t lose Olivier Giroud now, it’s seen as “impossible” by club sources and they expect Giroud to sign new deal in the next weeks or months after a verbal agreement was reached in December.
Cristiano Ronaldo: “It’s not the end of my career in Saudi Arabia. Many people speak… but they know nothing about football. I know here the league is very competitive. I don’t care about people saying things about this choice. I took my decision, I am happy.
“My work in Europe is done. I played at the best clubs in the world… and I won everything. I’m happy, proud to join Al Nassr. People don’t know about the level here. This contract is unique because I am a unique player. It’s normal for me.”
Some info I’ve had: I’m aware of Sporting Kansas City, Al Hilal and Al Nassr proposals for Ronaldo, but of course if he said that there were offers from Europe I guess there was something else!
