Following his arrival at Riyadh’s King Khalid International Airport later tonight, the 37-year-old star is set to start his day by undergoing a medical examination. Cristiano will also be accompanied by his family, who now calls the Saudi capital their new home.
The five-time Ballon D’or winner put pen to paper last Friday evening in Madrid in one of the most transformational partnerships in history by committing his future over the next two-and-a-half years with Saudi Pro League (Roshn Saudi League) current leaders Al Nassr.
Managed by French coach Rudi Garcia, the club enters the new year with their marquee signing as they hunt for their 18th league title. The historic transfer has captured the world’s attention, with millions across the globe anticipating Cristiano’s latest chapter in an illustrious career that spanned over two decades.
During a decorated and record-breaking career that saw the Portuguese star score over 800 goals for club and country, Cristiano Ronaldo has won five UEFA Champions League titles, four FIFA Club World Cups, and seven league titles in England, Spain and Italy. He’s become the first player in history to have lifted the league title in the three countries. On the national stage with Portugal, CR7 has guided his country to the UEFA European Championship in 2016 and the UEFA Nations Cup in 2019.
