The appearance of Cristiano Ronaldo at Al-Nassr helped the Arab club close an important deal.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr has announced that Nike will become the new shirt manufacturer . The main reason for this deal lies in CR7 because Nike wants to accompany the Portuguese star.
The 38-year-old has a lifetime contract with Nike and once signed a 10-year, £147m deal with the American giants.
This deal comes after Al-Hilal switched brands when choosing global sportswear Puma. Al-Hilal signed a five-year contract with Puma as the Arab league’s popularity began to skyrocket.
Al-Nassr previously collaborated with Nike from 1997-2001 and between 2010-2012.
Fans will get their first chance to see the new kit appear when the Riyadh-based team tries out PSG and Inter Milan on their tour in Japan later in the month.
Before that, Ronaldo and his teammates will face their first pre-season challenges in Portugal, where they face Celta Vigo and Benfica.
