The money is flowing in a big way in the Saudi Arabian league. The sheikhs are splashing the cash, and it seems their power in world football is expanding at a rapid pace, so it would not be unusual for many to have teams in every major league on the planet.

First it was Cristiano Ronaldo, who arrived at Al-Nassr with a lot of hype. A million-dollar contract and being a spokesman for the region has brought him both criticism and plaudits. Despite the Portuguese's pull, he was unable to win his first title as he was relegated to second place in the last few games.

And all because of Al-Ittihad, who have already signed another big name for Middle Eastern football in Karim Benzema. The French striker will get another juicy offer and will be able to play the next Club World Cup together with his compatriot N'Golo Kanté, who was rejected by Chelsea for next season.

But the mermaids are also singing for the coaches. Steven Gerrard has been appointed as the new coach of Al-Ettifaq, and he will have a historic investment in order to wrestle wins away from the other teams who have taken big stars and will continue to add more, opening up their portfolios in a big way.

Who will be Gerrard's stars in Saudi Arabia?

The portal Calcio Mercato launched the information that Sadio Mané and Philippe Coutinho would be Steven Gerrard's priority to be transferred to Al-Ettifaq. The cost of the players would not be a problem and they could be offered a millionaire contract, so they would be the new stars to add to Saudi Arabia.
