“Cristiano Ronaldo’s hopes of having the talented and thrilling winger Ousmane Dembele join him at Al Nassr this summer seem to have been dashed, as reports suggest the Frenchman has declined a lucrative 200 million euro contract with the Saudi Arabian team. Instead, Dembele is determined to reclaim his spot at Barcelona.”

Cristiano Ronaldo may have had hopes of welcoming a young and promising winger like Ousmane Dembele to Al Nassr this summer. However, reports indicate that the Frenchman has declined a lucrative 200 million euro contract with the Saudi Arabian team in order to make a comeback at Barcelona.

Dembele, who made a high-profile move to Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund in 2017, has struggled to live up to his potential since his multi-million euro transfer. Recurring injuries have plagued him, resulting in significant periods of absence every season. Despite being a key player in France’s journey to the 2022 World Cup final, his value has diminished in the eyes of the Barca hierarchy.

Barcelona’s superstar declines Cristiano Ronaldo’s tempting €200m bid from Al-Nassr –

The winger was offered a substantial financial opportunity to play in the Saudi Pro League, but according to reports from Footymercato, he has chosen to stay in Spain and work towards earning a contract extension with Barcelona. His performance has been a disappointment to the Barcelona fans, who expected him to fill the void left by Neymar Jr.’s departure. Since his final season at Dortmund as a teenager, Dembele has failed to play more than 2000 minutes in any season, spending more time on the sidelines than on the pitch during his tenure at the Camp Nou.

A move to Al Nassr could have been a refreshing change for Dembele, offering a substantial salary and still being only 25 years old, but he has opted to focus on revitalizing his career and fulfilling his immense potential either at Barcelona or among Europe’s elite clubs.

Ronaldo’s signing was a significant statement for Al Nassr, and the club has since added other notable players such as Croatian midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, Ivorian midfielder Sekou Fofana, and Brazilian fullback Alex Telles, with the possibility of more additions in an increasingly competitive Pro League.
