CRISTIANO RONALDO has swapped his upmarket Saudi skyscraper hotel for his first proper Middle Eastern home – so he can pamper his doting mum on a luxury holiday.
The 38-year-old dad-of-five checked out of his suite at the plush Four Seasons hotel Kingdom Centre before Dolores Aveiro jetted to Riyadh from her ocean-front pad in Madeira.

And this weekend mum and son caught up on lost time with Cristiano’s partner Georgina Rodriguez and their children as the five-times Ballon d’or winner settled into his new upmarket surroundings following his abrupt departure from Manchester United.
Sources confirmed the star had left the hotel where he was staying with his family.
The mum of the world’s highest paid sportsman, now on a deal believed to be worth £173million a year, posted a selfie with Ronaldo’s oldest son online following her arrival in Riyadh and wrote: “Already with my boy.”
It is not yet clear where exactly Ronaldo is living, although his new home is said to be in an exclusive compound with top-level security for him and his family and easy access to shops, restaurants, gyms and other amenities.
One of the neighbourhoods he was rumoured to be looking at before he announced his Prem departure was Al Muhammadiyah which boasts an incredible nightlife and some of the best restaurants in town.
Al Nakheel – an area filled with the best international schools to educate their kids – was also billed as an ideal destination when the former Real Madrid man made his move.
There is no suggestion he has bought the new mansion he has moved to and is understood to be renting.
The Portuguese superstar’s hotel accommodation up until now following his move to Saudi side Al-Nassr had been fit for a king with room sizes covering more than 3000ft.

Ronaldo booked into a giant-sized suite at the 99-storey Kingdom Tower, one of the tallest buildings in the country, when he signed for his new club at the start of the year.
The photos he and his partner Georgina have posted on their social media, which have included an adorable photo of the footballer with his baby daughter Bella Esmeralda on his lap, were taken at the couple’s new pad.
The first snaps the loved-up pair took together at their new mansion also included a Valentine’s Day photo Ronaldo captioned: “In love with you and what we are together.”
Ronaldo is expected to retire with his family to a mansion near Lisbon when he hangs up his boots which is still being built and is not expected to be finished until the summer.
His massive property portfolio also includes two apartments in Lisbon, two mansions on the outskirts of Madrid, and an eight-storey building in Funchal in Madeira where his mum and older brother currently live.
