Cristiano Ronaldo opened the door for the world's greatest stars to come to Saudi Arabia. With Al-Nassr he has made a lot of money and become a promoter of the territory around the world. But he was unable to win the title despite all his attempts in recent times.

He will no longer be the only one in the Middle East region. Karim Benzema will join him at your counterpart Al-Ittihad, along with N'Golo Kanté and others joining the experience of being in this exotic league.

On the other hand, Erling Haaland has just lifted the UEFA Champions League trophy by beating Inter Milan by the narrowest of margins to consolidate his position as the top scorer in Europe's top competition. That's what the Norwegian was brought in for, and he didn't disappoint when it came to blowing away opposing goals.

But now there is a record that just tied the so-called 'android' that would shake the marks that Cristiano Ronaldo had imposed in the Premier League and in the top competition in Europe, those that made him a historic of world football.

The mark Haaland ties CR7.

Erling Haaland will have the honour of being the top scorer in the UEFA Champions League and the Premier League, as well as winning both competitions with Manchester City. The only other player to have achieved that feat was Cristiano Ronaldo during his time with Manchester United. This could mean the switch of the baton that everyone expected from the Portuguese star to the Norwegian striker.
