Newly signed Al-Nassr forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has been spotted with Cameroon’s Vincent Aboubakar as the strikers ‘exchanged the baton’ at the club, Newspremises reports.
Manchester United terminated Ronaldo’s contract in December after his explosive interview with British broadcaster, Pires Morgan, the veteran striker opted to move to the Saudi Professional League by signing a mouth-watering money deal with the Riyadh-based outfit.
Aboubakar joined the club in 2021 and made 34 league appearances, scoring 12 goals, before he was asked to leave following Ronaldo’s arrival.
Due to the large number of foreigners already present, Al-Nassr was unable to register their new star, which led to his departure from the club.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who was unveiled by the club earlier this week, was signed after the 30-year-old was brutally fired.
According to SPORTbible, Al-Nassr made the decision to part ways with Aboubakar because they needed to “free up room” in their roster because they were at capacity for international players.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo and the Cameroon captain was spotted together as they shared smiles while posing for a photo.
Fans have continued to react to the situation.
“He was the star and when CR7 came, his candle burnt out. All his comments about CR7 were not in good faith.You could see a sour grappling player.”
“All the best to Vincent .this is a step in the right direction for him.”

“Vincent Aboubakar has left Al Nassr by mutual consent he had been interested in making a return to Europe after getting good offers.”
