AL NASSR president Musli Al-Muammar has played down reports linking Cristiano Ronaldo with a huge move to the Saudi Pro League.
Ronaldo, 37, was released by Manchester United last month following his tell-all interview with Piers Morgan and he is yet to find a new club.
Few European clubs have expressed an interest in signing the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, meaning he may have to seek a move further afield.
The Saudi Pro League is currently his expected destination, with Al Nassr reportedly willing to offer him around £173million-a-year.
However, club president Al-Muammar has downplayed the rumours.
According to reports in Spain, the Al Nassr chief has said that the circulating reports are "mostly a lie".

He told Flashscore: "I'm not allowed to say yes or no.
"Let's wait and see how things unfold until the end of the year.
"As you can see, this is a negotiation of enormous magnitude, not only for the club, but for the country and for world football, and which has to be conducted by higher authorities.
