Vincent Aboubakar brutally released by Al Nassr in order to register Cristiano Ronaldo



Vicent Aboubakar’s contract has been terminated by Al Nassr in order to make room for new addition Cristiano Ronaldo.

After weeks of speculation, it was confirmed last week that Ronaldo had signed for Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr after his second stint with Manchester United ended bitterly.

Earlier this week, Ronaldo was given a huge welcome by his new club and fans as the five-time Ballon d’Or winner was officially unveiled by Al Nassr.

Since Ronaldo was given a two-match suspension by the FA while playing for United, he will have to wait a little longer to make his debut.

In addition, Al Nassr needed to clear up a space in their squad as they have reached the full capacity for foreign players.

In order to sign Ronaldo, the club has reportedly decided to part ways with Cameroon striker Aboubakar, reports Saudi Arabian news outlet Al Riyadh.

During his name with Al Nassr, Aboubakar scored 13 goals and has six assists to his name.

Aboubakar also impressed during the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, scoring the winner in Cameroon’s last group stage match against Brazil.

The Cameroon star is for sure not short of confidence, he recently claimed that he is as good as Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah.

He said: “I don’t give a toss if people don’t like it – I’m not impressed by him.

“I can do what he does. I just don’t have the opportunity to play in a big club.”

Since the news about Aboubakar’s release surfaced, the 30-year-old was sensationally linked with a move to Ronaldo’s former club, United.

However, it looks like Aboubakar’s move to United may not materialize as the Old Trafford club are reportedly closing in on a loan move for Netherlands striker Wout Weghorst.

Weghorst is currently on loan at Besiktas from Championship side Burnley.

In the 21/22 season, Weghorst made a total of 20 Premier League appearances, scoring twice and assisting three times but wasn’t able to prevent Burnely from relegation.

Is Weghorst a good signing for United? Let us know in the comments.
