As one of the most famous and successful soccer players in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo is known for his talent on the field and his luxurious lifestyle off of it. So, when he recently signed a 7-year contract with Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr, earning him an estimated 500 million euros, many were curious to know what kind of extravagant home he would choose to live in.
At the moment, Ronaldo and his family are residing in the Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in the Kingdom Tower, where he has reportedly booked 17 rooms for his family, friends and security team across two floors of the hotel. According to the UK outlet ‘Daily Mail,’ he will be paying around €285,000 per month for this temporary accommodation until he can find a permanent residence.
While the cost of Ronaldo’s future home in Saudi Arabia is currently unknown, it’s safe to say that it will likely be just as luxurious as his temporary lodgings at the Four Seasons. With his astronomical wealth and high-profile status, it’s likely that the soccer star will be able to find a grand and opulent residence that suits his tastes and needs.
But just what kind of home can 500 million euros buy in Saudi Arabia? It’s possible that Ronaldo may choose to purchase a palatial villa or a grand mansion in one of the more exclusive neighborhoods of the country. He may also opt for a luxurious apartment in a high-rise building, with incredible views of the city and all the amenities one would expect from a world-class hotel.
Whatever he chooses, it’s clear that Ronaldo’s move to Saudi Arabia is a historic moment for football in the Middle East, and his signing is expected to not only inspire success for his new club, but to also inspire future generations in the region. His presence in the country, and his choice of residence, is likely to draw even more attention to the rapidly developing and modernizing nation. It will be interesting to see what kind of home Ronaldo chooses, and how it reflects both his personal tastes, and the image he wants to project in Saudi Arabia. One thing is for sure, it will be grand, luxurious and expensive, fit for a soccer star of his caliber.
