Ronaldo ‘snubbed’ by non-league club as star ‘wants Al-Nassr exit’
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag reviews the Aston Villa game
National League side Bromley have jokingly snubbed Cristiano Ronaldo following the news that the Manchester United icon apparently wants to leave Saudi outfit Al-Nassr. Ronaldo reportedly wants to depart the club just months after signing a blockbuster deal.
It has been claimed that Ronaldo wants another spell at Real Madrid before the end of his career. It prompted Vanarama, who sponsor the National League, to humorously suggest that the 38-year-old striker signs for Bromley.
The Ravens play in white kit akin to that of the Spanish giants. Car leasing company Vanarama tweeted a photoshopped picture of Ronaldo in a Bromley shirt alongside the caption: “It’s not too late if you want to play in white next season, @Cristiano.”
However, Bromley brutally snubbed the idea of signing the five-time Ballon d’Or winner in a hilarious tweet soon after. Their official account quote-tweeted Vanarama’s post, saying: “Nah, you’re alright.”

According to Spanish publication El Nacional, Ronaldo wants to leave Al-Nassr just three months after signing an eye-watering contract to play in the Middle East. The veteran forward penned a deal reportedly worth a whopping £177million per season.
But things have not gone entirely to plan since Ronaldo’s arrival. Some regular viewers of football in Saudi Arabia claim that Al-Nassr have become worse since the club acquired the iconic former Man Utd and Real Madrid star.
The club lost their lead at the top of the Saudi Pro League and are now three points behind leaders Al-Ittihad. Ronaldo has scored 12 goals in 12 appearances but a few recent outbursts suggest not all is well.
The report adds that Ronaldo is open to re-joining Real Madrid. However, a return to Los Blancos could simply be in an ambassadorial role.

Meanwhile, Bromley have the chance to go a step closer to the Football League in the play-off eliminator tie with Woking on Wednesday. Winning the game would put them into the four-team play-off, with the victor earning promotion.
“I’m extremely proud. I’m proud of the players, the staff and my immediate staff,” manager Andy Woodman said. “No one lost focus or belief. As a leader, you have to make sure everyone believes in what you’re telling them, and they believed and trusted when certain people didn’t.
“That’s human nature, but I knew we would make it. I’m really proud for them that they have ticked off the first stage. We had a meeting at the beginning of the season where I told them about this year and what we’re going to do in this month.
“And I can say that now because we have got in. Stage one is done. I’m proud of this club – I love it. I want it to get to where I think it can get to, which is league football.”
