Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to be in the new cube only in September, however, the return, for which the entire contract has already been agreed, will not be the only news from Manchester.
This is because, in addition to returning to work in the city, the player is preparing to open a hotel in the area. In a prime location on the corner of Piccadilly and Newton Street, the new Cristiano Hotel in Manchester will feature 150 rooms and feature a rooftop bar with stunning views.
The project will include an investment of €31 million (about R$190 million), an amount that includes the demolition of an empty building covered with scaffolding and various billboards for nearly two decades.
The arrival of the project to the UK is part of the expansion that Cristiano planned with the Pestana group, which he joined in 2015. In addition to Manchester, the player already owns hotels in Portugal, the USA and Spain (see pictures in gallery below)
Already planning units in Marrakech and Paris.
“Football is a first for Cristiano, it has always been. But he has now reached a point in his career where he looks beyond the game and the next steps. The incredible opportunities off the field here in the UK are an important part of the reasons I am coming back.”
Manchester is set to open in early 2023. “He is very involved in the Manchester Hotel project and will try to open more once the first one is operational. Ronaldo has global appeal, so his hotels are likely to be a huge success and he wants them to be the envy of the world. He has seen how Giggs, Gary Neville and Paul Scholes are doing well and he’s really impressed,” said the same source.
