Star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has arrived in Saudi Arabia and will be unveiled by his new club Al Nassr. The Portuguese star was announced as the club’s new signing last week. An event is being organized at the King Saud University Stadium to unveil the football superstar.

Ronaldo will be presented to Al Nassr fans on January 3 (Tuesday) at the King Saud University Stadium. The event has been scheduled for 7 pm local time.
