Al-Nassr striker Cristiano Ronaldo will live in a veritable palace

Three hundred and eighty-five euros a minute, two hundred million a year: Cristiano Ronaldo is leaving the soccer that counts but consoling himself with a royal salary, and in Saudi Arabia he is ready to live like a nabob.

English tabloids have identified the house where CR7, Al Nassr’s new striker, will live: a 14-million-euro villa in Riyadh with eight bedrooms, Olympic-size swimming pool, reception room with waterfall included, three other mini villas for guests. Cooks, waiters and housekeepers will stay in nearby buildings, children will go to international schools.

All in total discretion, as desired by the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who is on his way to becoming the highest paid player on the planet.
