The highly competitive Saudi Professional League next year
Ronaldo won’t be the only one with Champions League experience in the Saudi Professional League next season as the Gulf nation strives to build a squad of global stars ahead of the 2023-24 campaign. With Lionel Messi’s progress slowing, 2022 Ballon d’Or holder Karim Benzema completed his move to Al-Ittihad on Tuesday.
2018 world champion N’Golo Kante is also set to move to the champions club, while a total of nine players could join Ronaldo in the Middle East by the end of the summer. He could join his Portuguese side in particular, Wilfried Zaha, a boost for the heavyweights to claim the title next year.
