Ronaldo’s exploits in Saudi Arabia sparked a flurry of superstars. Neymar left Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) for Al-Hilal for an astronomical transfer fee and salary. Kalidou Koulibaly and Robben Neves also left the English Premier League (EPL) for Al Hilal. World-class striker Karim Benzema and top defensive midfielder N’Golo Kante also left Europe for Al Ittihad this summer.
At 38 years old, Ronaldo is on fire in Saudi Arabia, even as he looks to be on the verge of retirement. He is currently the league’s top scorer with seven goals, including a goal in each of his last four league games.
Ronaldo is also looking to conquer Asia. Ronaldo made his ACL debut against Persepolis in the first leg of their Asian Champions League (ACL) Group E match on March 20. Despite being heavily guarded by his opponents, he played the full 90 minutes before being substituted in second-half stoppage time, helping his team to a 2-0 victory.
