Where does Ronaldo live in Saudi Arabia?

Publish Date: 10/30/2023
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

When a player like Ronaldo makes a move in their career, there are plenty of factors that can motivate them to choose one club over another. Often, it doesn’t come down to any one of these factors specifically, but a combination of them – but one detail that will always be somewhere in the reckoning is the matter of where they will live. Years of earning millions means that they have become used to a certain level of comfort, and the minimum they will expect is that this level is maintained. So, having been an Al Nassr player for close to a year, what do we know about the home that CR7 has found for himself?

As you might expect for a player who has been earning footballer’s wages for two decades, the Portuguese star already has a significant property portfolio. At present, his includes homes in his native Madeira as well as places in Madrid, Lisbon, Turin and – from his stints at Manchester United – Cheshire. After his latest pay rise, it’s inevitable that there’ll be another new home on the list. What do we know – and not know – about where Ronaldo is calling home these days?

Cristiano Ronaldo

Where does he live?

It’s in Riyadh

Let’s be honest right from the get-go; there is a lot we don’t know about the latest house to join the CR7 real estate portfolio. We don’t know, for instance, what part of Riyadh it is in, which is in contrast to the other homes he has owned. This is probably very much a choice on the part of Ronaldo and his entourage. $200million a year buys a lot of privacy, and in Saudi Arabia it can buy you a home that paparazzi and fans won’t be able to track down easily. People in the know believe that the latest luxury home is in either Al Muhammadiyah, an exclusive area known for its social scene, or Al Nakheel, which is where the best international schools are found.

Ronaldo and his partner Georgina Rodriguez, with a young family to consider, may well have chosen Al Nakheel as their base – but there are very few details publicly available, and it’s likely to stay that way. Although they have shared pictures from the new home, they have been carefully chosen to not contain any information the couple don’t want in the public domain.

It’s luxurious

It won’t come as a surprise to anyone that the latest Casa Ronaldo is a luxury home. The images that have been shared show it to be a spacious, spec-built property as one would expect for an exceptionally wealthy individual. The details that we have been able to discover suggest that it also benefits from unseen luxuries that only the best money can buy. For example, we know that no expense has been spared in terms of security. Even if a curious or malicious individual were to find out the location of the home, they’d struggle to get near it with all the technology and trained personnel.

We also know that it has been chosen with an eye on proximity to the best amenities in Riyadh. Shops, restaurants and gyms are all a stone’s throw away – although if anyone were actually to throw a stone in this location, they’d be detained by security almost immediately. It is also fair to assume that the couple’s neighbors will have no interest in giving away their location, as they are understood to include several Al Nassr teammates and players from other Riyadh-based clubs – none of whom are keen to advertise their own locations.

It’s a family home

As has already been mentioned, the latest Ronaldo home has to accommodate the striker, his partner, and their kids, but the family doesn’t end there. The player’s mother, Dolores Aveiro, brought him up mostly single-handed, with next to no money, and the player hasn’t forgotten this. His new Riyadh home has been built with Dolores in mind, and includes plenty of space for her to call her own. The Riyadh property is a long way from the hard-scrabble background the family experienced in Madeira, and word has it that the “granny annex” enjoyed by Mama Ronaldo is larger than the family home they shared there.

It’s also known that work is currently afoot on a property in Lisbon that is expected to be large enough to accommodate the full extended family once CR7 retires. His Madrid home, meanwhile, is now available for rent as an exclusive vacation rental – and if you have a spare $11,000 a month then it could be your holiday home. For the moment, though, this new property in Riyadh is the only show in town – and given that he intends to sign a new contract at Al Nassr, it may well be Ronaldo’s home for another few years.
