This is undoubtedly one of the most controversial moves in world sports: Cristiano Ronaldo, who is considered one of the greatest footballers of all time, is moving to Al Nasser of Saudi Arabia for a huge contract that should give him about 200 million dollars a year.

The contract is until 2025.

As you know, Saudi Arabia is trying to win the tender to host the World Cup in 2030, and part of its investment is to bring an international figure like Ronaldo to the country, in order to raise its profile in the world and improve its image.

The Saudis are trying to open up to the West and bring in tourists, and in the rich country they believe that a purchase like Ronaldo is a significant step in the strategy.

Ronaldo will arrive in Saudi Arabia as one of the most famous figures in the world of sports, and as befits a family man, and of course as part of the agreement - he will arrive in the country with his partner Georgina Rodriguez and their five children, who will arrive in the near future.

Al Nasser plays in the city of Riyadh, which is mostly characterized by a traditional lifestyle and strict Islamic customs.

It is a city characterized by hot summers, with many days above 30 degrees and strong winds that carry sand from the surrounding desert.

Riyadh also has modern parts, with a business center and skyscrapers, but Ronaldo's family is expected to live in one of the two prestigious and closed neighborhoods in the city - Al Muhammadiyah or Al Naheel.

These two areas include prestigious shopping areas, fine restaurants and, of course, international schools that are considered quality.

These are closed areas, where there are no strict Islamic laws, and where many businessmen from the West live.

Ronaldo and his family will not have to leave the area, where of course drinking alcohol is also allowed, unlike what is done in the rest of the country.

These are also residential areas that, in addition to being liberal, are also certainly safer and provide all the needs of those who live in them - from supermarkets to medical services and all.

There is no doubt that as long as Ronaldo and his family stay in those areas, their standard of living will not be significantly affected, and they will even be able to maintain privacy.

However, of course, once the family members leave the compounds, Georgina for example will have to change some of her habits.

She will be required to cover her head (mainly out of respect, since it is not mandatory), and not to wear her usual clothes, but to be careful not to expose shoulders or knees.

Not outside the gated neighborhood.

The estimate: the couple will go on many vacations.

According to the reports, Ronaldo will receive a luxurious mansion, which will be given to him by one of the country's richest sheikhs, who donated one of his houses in order to provide the footballer with quality conditions.

This is a typical "palace", worth over 12 million dollars (a huge sum in Saudi Arabia), which includes eight large bedrooms, an Olympic-sized pool, of course a gym, a waterfall in the entrance lobby, and other ostentatious treats typical of the Arab world.

Ronaldo is known to be a devoted family man, but it is unclear when exactly Georgina and his children are expected to arrive.

It is clear that he has no intention of saying goodbye to them, and according to all reports, he signed the contract only after carefully examining the conditions that would be granted to his loved ones.

"Georgina was pleasantly surprised by what awaits her in Qatar," the Portuguese media wrote, "after her visit to Qatar, she discovered that the Arab world is not what she thought."
