Who are the four United friends Ronaldo invited to Saudi Arabia?
Cristiano Ronaldo officially left Manchester United during the World Cup in Qatar and didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to his teammates.
Not everyone in the Red Devils dressing room liked the Portuguese, but he also left friends at his former team.
So he contacted those closest to him at United with an invitation to visit him at his estate in Portugal in the summer, before watching him at his new club Al Nasser in Saudi Arabia.
Ronaldo, 37, is currently building a luxury home on the outskirts of Lisbon and is ready to open its doors to his United friends.
He also asked them if they would be willing to travel to the Middle East to meet with him if their schedules allowed.
A United source told The Sun tabloid: “There are still a few guys here who have a lot of respect for Ronnie and are sad the way things ended because they didn’t get to say goodbye properly.
He recently left the WhatsApp group but has promised to stay in touch with some of them and has invited them to Lisbon and Saudi Arabia to watch him. It’s about Harry Maguire, Bruno Fernandes, Casemiro and Raphael Varane.”
At the same time, it became clear that Ronaldo sent his fleet of luxury cars to Portugal.
The United source added: “Several staff were hoping he would raffle off at least one of his supercars like Sergio Aguero did when he left Manchester City!”
Coon did hold a raffle for his Range Rover when he left the Etihad in 2021. It was won by Ali Marland, one of the club’s hosts.
