Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly called Porto star Otavio in an attempt to lure him to Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr.
Porto midfielder Otavio has been linked with a move to Al-Nassr.
The 28-year-old has two years left on his contract but the Saudi Arabian side have reportedly offered him a lucrative contract to join fellow Portuguese international Ronaldo at Luis Castro’s team.
A Bola claims the 38-year-old has called his compatriot to try and convince him to join him in the Saudi Pro League.
The report adds that Otavio has a release clause of £31m until July 15, but that will rise to £47m after that date.
If the former Internacional player does join Al-Nassr, he could reportedly earn nearly £12m a year – five times more than what he earns at Porto.
A Bola adds, however, that the Portuguese side would not pocket all of a possible sale fee as some would go to a third party.
Otavio and Ronaldo get along well; in fact, Otavio refuted media rumours that the former Manchester United star had threatened to quit the Portuguese national squad during the 2014 World Cup.
He claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo served as the team’s “captain” and that Portugal was “united” under him.
