Cristiano Jr, the son of football legend Cristiano Ronaldo, has signed for Al Nassr’s Under-13 team and will wear the number 7 jersey.
The 13-year-old Ronaldo’s oldest son has been following in his father’s footsteps by playing football.
Cristiano Jr. played for Real Madrid’s youth squad when his father was there, and then for Juventus after Ronaldo moved from La Liga to Serie A.
According to Goal, Cristiano Jr. has signed for Al Nassr’s Under 13s, following in his father’s footsteps and returning to the Middle East.
Ronaldo joined Al Nassr in January and has since been followed by current Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema to Al-Ittihad.
With an estimated £175 million per year contract, Ronaldo became the highest-paid footballer in the world.
The 38-year-old has made an immediate impact at the Saudi Arabian club, scoring 40 goals in 2023, the most by any player in the world.
