Al Nassr are facing a dilemma as they could lose one of their disgruntled stars due to a player cap in Asia.

The Arab club where Cristiano Ronaldo is active is aiming to qualify for the Asian Champions League, but the problem is that the Asian Confederation allows only five players born outside Asia to play in this competition.

According to the Spanish newspaper Sport, Al Nassr could give up Talisca to accommodate their other stars.

Talisca is one of their best players with 44 goals and eight assists in 67 appearances, but he doesn’t seem to have the glamor of a declining Sadio Mane or Alex Telles.

Funnily enough, Al Nassr will still have to sacrifice one of their best signings this summer.

The Saudi club has already signed Sadio Mane, Seko Fofana, Marcelo Brozovic, Alex Telles and Aymeric Laporte is said to be coming.

By adding Cristiano Ronaldo, the number of players who were born outside of Asia goes to six, while the allowed limit is five.

Thus, Talisca is revolted with the club and it seems that he will leave because he does not want me to play only in the Arab championship, since his desire is to be a protagonist in the Asian Champions League.
