The Portugal international has taken the Saudi Pro League by storm since arriving at the club.

Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly keen to reunite with one of his closest Juventus friends at Al Nassr.

Ronaldo ended his second spell at Manchester United before the World Cup to join a new club. Last month, an astronomical offer from Al Nassr convinced CR7 to join the Saudi Arabian side.

The Portuguese superstar seems to have settled in quickly at his new club, registering seven goals and two assists in his last three outings for Al Nassr.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Ronaldo has asked Juventus‘ backup goalkeeper Carlo Pinsoglio to follow him to Al Nassr.

The Italian keeper has spent his entire career at Juve, only leaving the club on loan moves. However, Ronaldo’s offer could convince the 32-year-old to change clubs next summer.

Ronaldo’s fantastic start at Al Nassr

Ronaldo has spent around two months at Al Nassr, making a strong start to life at the Saudi club.

So far, CR7 has made five league games for Al Nassr, registering eight goals and two assists. 

The Portugal international’s linkup with the likes of Abdulrahman Ghareeb and Ayman Yahya has improved Al Nassr attacking form, keeping them at the top of the Saudi Pro League table.
