Hear me out, okay? He's been in and out of Dubai more times than one could count their own visits to the fridge on a boring midweek evening.
From family vacations to attending football awards, it seems as if Dubai was made to fit Cristiano Ronaldo's lifestyle.
New Year with the family? Check
Romantic getaways? Double check
He's friends with Dubai's royalty
Meeting up with Dubai's crown prince Sheikh Hamdan was only a golden cherry on top. As it seems, the two are "friends" and admire each other.
On top of that, we can safely say Ronaldo's wellbeing can be perfectly taken care of in the emirate. The adventurous Juventus forward took a helicopter ride over Burj Al Arab and Dubai back in Jan., and even went for a run in Dubai's desert to stay in shape.
Physical and mental health? Perfectly fine.
His fiancée surely loves it there, too
Right? She looks happy
The Portuguese footballer is definitely loved in the UAE
He looks good in the traditional attire
For an international footballer - who just turned 34, by the way - with a freshly signed contract worth $113 million, the extravagant luxury in Dubai and the UAE suits him well.
In 2016, a close friend of Ronaldo, Miguel Paixão, opened a temporary pop-up museum to honor his former teammate in Dubai. A "lifesize waxwork of Ronaldo" was present, along with trophies, personal memorabilia, and merchandise.
To make it more obvious, he's partnered up with Dubai Holding
Dubai Holding seems to be targeting big celebrities for their new project, Madinat Jumeirah Living.
With an ad already online, starring Gabriel Macht - lead actor in U.S. series Suits - it seems the "lush, vibrant landscapes" are meant to attract people like Ronaldo and Macht.
The 34-year-old footballer will soon have to retire ... maybe he could buy a villa in Madinat Jumeirah Living and reside there? For good?
