Odion Ighalo has advised Cristiano Ronaldo to accept offers from Saudi Arabian Professional League side Al Nassr.
Ronaldo is free to join any club of his choice following his acrimonious exit from Manchester United last Month.
The 37 year-old has been linked with possible switch to the Middle East, with Al Nassr reportedly offering him a deal worth £173m per annum.
Reacting to the rumors, Ighalo who also left Manchester United for Saudi Arabia, said he would like to have the Portugal star with him in the league.
“You never can tell, I would love him to do that,” Ighalo told The Athletic.
“I would love for him to come to Saudi because he would boost the league and add more fan base to the league. People who aren’t already watching will start to engage with the league and see something they are missing.”
Pressed further, the former Watford forward, however does not think the move will happen soon.
“Cristiano Ronaldo is hugely ambitious and I think he will want to play in a Champions League team and end his career well, but you never can say.
“He has that decision to make and I wish him all the best in that decision, and hopefully, he will come to Saudi Arabia,” He concluded.
