FIFA sanctioned the club for not being willing to pay Musa an amount equivalent to 1/400 of Cristiano’s salary.
Is Cristiano Ronaldo’s team in serious trouble? According to Goal, Al-Nasr have been slapped with a transfer ban that will prevent them from registering new players. The reason is problems with payments to the former CSKA footballer.

From 2018 to 2020, Nigerian striker Ahmed Musa played for Al-Nasr. He is well known to Russian fans from his matches with CSKA. Then, in transit through Leicester, the Nigerian landed in Saudi Arabia. Al-Nasr did not pay Musa any bonuses related to his performances for the club. The striker managed to activate the point for which he should receive 460 thousand euros.
The official FIFA ruling states that Al-Nasr did not pay this amount + interest for Ahmed’s performance. Musa made 60 appearances for the club, scoring 11 goals and providing 14 assists. And in the 2018/2019 season, he helped Al-Nasr become the champion of Saudi Arabia. But the club bosses did not appreciate the contribution of the Nigerian very much, who did not fulfill his contractual obligations.

FIFA originally published the ruling in October 2021. In it, the organization sided with Musa and warned Al-Nasr: a transfer ban would be placed on the club if the player failed to collect the amount owed. Management ignored the decision and failed. The newcomer registration ban applies to both domestic and international transfers. That is to say, Al-Nasr will not be able to sign Marcelo Brozovic, acquired in the summer from Inter.
FIFA’s original ruling in October 2021 noted that the potential ban would be in place for three transfer windows. Al-Nasr officials were also warned that the matter would be taken to FIFA’s Disciplinary Committee if the Saudis still did not pay before the end of the ban. It is worth noting that the issue arose before Al-Nasr came under the control of the Saudi Arabian State Investment Fund. According to Mirror, the new bosses are ready to pay Musa money to quickly lift the ban. FIFA is likely to go to Al-Nasr and cancel the ban for three windows.

Stars are pouring into the Saudi league in droves: it’s a sin not to take a moment to call out someone else besides Cristiano Ronaldo, David Ospina and Anderson Talisca. At the very least, it is worth solving the problem for the fact of registering the star Croatian midfielder Brozovic.
In Saudi Arabia they simply receive space money:
