Cristiano Ronaldo expected to spend £250,000 a month on hotel room in Saudi Arabia

Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to rack up a bill of £250,000 a month on a hotel room after moving to Saudi Arabia.
Who does he think he is, Kevin from Home Alone?
The Portuguese footballer moved to the country after signing with Saudi Arabian club team Al-Nassr in a deal that will see him play until June 2025.
After the deal was announced last month, Ronaldo, his girlfriend, family members and security detail all moved into 17 hotel rooms at the Four Seasons in the Kingdom Tower, one of the tallest buildings in the country, until they find somewhere more permanent to settle in to.
Ronaldo himself has been booked for one month into one of the hotel's best suites, the Mail Online reports, where customers can expect to pay thousands of pounds for just one night.
There are a number of fancy rooms to choose from at the hotel, but among the finest is the hotel's Kingdom Suite, which stretches across two of the Kingdom Tower's 99 floors.
According to the Four Seasons website, the Kingdom Suite allows customers to 'entertain guests with unparalleled views of Riyadh'.
"Our newest two-storey suite spans the 48th and 50th floors of the Hotel, with a soaring living room, a private office, a dining room and a media room," the site explains.
The adjacent ‘Royal Suite’ doesn't cover quite as much ground, but still has a fairly reasonable - alright, massive - 2,595 feet for guests to enjoy.
Prices for those two suites aren't even listed on the hotel's website, but if their smaller, £3,300-per-night Presidential Suite is anything to by, they're not made for anyone looking for a budget getaway.
The hotel's high prices suggest Ronaldo and his entourage will rack up a bill of more than £250,000 when they go to check out in a few weeks' time.
Meanwhile, they'll be able to enjoy 'the best of dishes from China, Japan, India and the Middle East, with the freshest ingredients to order'.
Ronaldo has moved to the country with his girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez, and will be allowed to live with her during his stay in spite of Saudi laws which forbid unmarried couples from cohabitating.
Saudi lawyers told Spanish international news agency EFE authorities will ‘turn a blind eye’ to Ronaldo's living situation, with one lawyer claiming: "Nowadays Saudi authorities no longer interfere in this matter – for expatriates – even though the law prohibits cohabitation without marriage."
Ronaldo has also been joined in Saudi Arabia by his five children.
