Ronaldo Arrives In Saudi Arabia

Cristiano Ronaldo, a footballing superstar from Portugal, has arrived in Riyadh ahead of his formal debut in front of tens of thousands of supporters at the Al Nassr club in Saudi Arabia.

The 37-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo arrived in Saudi Arabia capital late on Monday after concluding a contract worth an estimated 213 million euros, according to Al Ekhbariya state-run TV. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is accompanied by a sizable entourage and is staying at a five-star hotel in the city.

According to a representative, “He brought a large team of helpers and even a private security business.”

At 7 p.m. local time (16:00 GMT) on Tuesday, Ronaldo, who left Manchester United under fire after criticising the team in a TV interview, will appear at Al Nassr’s 25,000-seat Mrsool Park stadium in Riyadh, according to officials.

After Portugal’s World Cup quarterfinal elimination in neighbouring Qatar, where his great adversary Lionel Messi won the championship with Argentina, and weeks before the most recent and possibly final chapter of Ronaldo’s storied career, the world is now watching.

According to a representative who declined to be identified because he was not authorised to speak to the media, Al Nassr anticipates a full stadium for the unveiling.

The nine-time league champions from Saudi Arabia, Al Nassr, dubbed Ronaldo’s signing “more than history in the making,” asserting that he will motivate the rest of the league and perhaps even the entire nation. Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Faisal, the Saudi Arabian minister of sports, promised in a tweet that he will “help the rest of our teams for great deals with worldwide talents shortly.”

A new era for the nation’s international football profile is anticipated to begin with Ronaldo’s debut by Al Nassr on Tuesday.
