After a week of media anticipation about Cristiano Ronaldo joining the Saudi Al-Nassr club, the world-renowned footballer arrived at Riyadh’s King Khaled International Airport from Madrid late on Monday.
The Portuguese international arrived with his family around 11 p.m. Saudi time.
Al-Nassr club will hold a two-hour welcoming ceremony for Ronaldo on Tuesday, Dec. 3 at Marsool Park at 7 p.m., where he will sign a contract, and address fans and media at a press conference.
The ceremony is expected to be broadcast by several TV channels.
The club has yet to announce when Ronaldo will make his Al-Nassr debut.
Al-Nassr have described his move as “history in the making,” and said that it will benefit the Saudi league in many ways.
