With Cristiano Ronaldo having recently become the world's highest-paid player in history, what he gave to Al Nassr after joining the club earlier this month has reportedly been revealed.

The 37-year-old completed a sensational free-agent switch to the Middle East giants upon the opening of the January transfer window, following an unceremonious departure from Manchester United.

Ronaldo's contract in England was terminated by way of mutual consent after he publicly slammed the Red Devils, manager Erik ten Hag and his ex-colleagues in a controversial interview with British broadcaster Piers Morgan.

He has since signed a deal to become football's best-paid player of all time, making his official debut for Al Nassr in their 1-0 win over Ettifaq in the Saudi Pro League on Sunday night.

According to ESPN, the five-time Ballon d'or winner has already made an attempt to raise the standards at his new club, having handed Al Nassr's executives a "best practices" list after his arrival.

The former Real Madrid and Juventus forward's motivation for doing so is said to be to share advice and direction on where he believes the club can improve, with the board understood to be working on making the appropriate adjustments.

Throughout his career, Ronaldo has been considered a model professional by his coaches and peers, often earning praise for his unrelenting drive to be the best possible version of himself as a player.
