FIFA Sanctions  Ronaldo’s Club Al-Nassr Over Ahmed Musa Transfer

FIFA has sanctioned Cristiano Ronaldo’s Saudi Arabian club, Al-Nassr, because of an issue involving Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa.

The world football governing body has now banned the club from registering any new signing going into the new Saudi Pro League.

Al-Nassr has failed to pay Leicester City the money they owe them over Musa’s transfer.

Recall that Musa signed for the Saudi Arabian Pro League side in a €16.50m deal in 2018, shortly after impressing at the World Cup in Russia.

While the Knights of Naja have paid the transfer fee, they are yet to pay the add-ons, despite The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruling.

According to Ben Jacobs, Al-Nassr were ordered to pay the Foxes €460,000 in performance-related add-ons.

However, the Saudi Arabian giants are yet to obey CAS’ ruling, forcing FIFA to ban them from registering new players ahead of the new season.
