Cristiano Ronaldo‘s arrival at Al Nassr has claimed its first victim as Cameroonian international Vincent Aboubakar has reportedly had his contract terminated.
The rules on player registration in Saudi Arabia are strict as clubs can only have eight foreign players. Thus, Aboubakar is back on the transfer market and rumours are already flying.
Aboubakar was the best player for Cameroon in the 2022 World Cup and there will be no shortage of offers for him.
In Qatar he scored and assisted in the draw against Serbia (3-3) and was decisive with the winning goal against Brazil, even though the Africans were eliminated.
He also entered world cup folklore as he was sent off for his celebrations after scoring the winner against Brazil.
At Al Nassr, the Cameroonian played 12 league and cup games in which he scored four goals and provided two assists.
In total, the 30-year-old scored 13 goals in 39 games for Al Nassr, having previously played for Porto, Besiktas, Lorient and Valenciennes.
A few days ago, with the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, a video was released showing the Portuguese greeting the Cameroonian and talking to him. However, they will not be able to feature together at Al Nassr.
In Turkey, where Aboubakar already played for Besiktas, they report that he could join Fenerbahce. However, some in the English press think he could end up at Manchester United.
That’d be a quirk of fate if it does transpire, because Cristiano left United and left a gap that could be filled by Aboubakar, who made room for him in the Portuguese’s new team.
