Saudi Arabia's Sports Minister has claimed he would 'love' to see Cristiano Ronaldo play in the nation's domestic football league.

The 37-year-old forward said, last week, that he had been offered a two-year contract worth an astonishing 350million (305m) from an unnamed club - which he rejected.

After leaving Manchester United by mutual consent this week, the forward has once again become available to sign and, when asked about signing Ronaldo, Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al-Faisal claimed that 'anything is possible'.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Prince Abdulaziz said: 'Anything is possible, I would love to see Ronaldo play in the Saudi league,' Prince Abdulaziz said.

'It would benefit the league, the sports eco-system in Saudi and it will inspire the youth for the future. He's a role model to a lot of kids and has a big fan base.'

Opening up for the first time in an extraordinary interview with Piers Morgan on TalkTV about a massive offer to play in Saudi Arabia, he admitted rumours of a 350m offer for two seasons were true.
