Fifaâ€™s Player of the Year and Ballon dâ€™Or winner, Cristiano Ronaldo, is expected to break more records when he gets officially presented as a Real Madrid player.
Nothing has been confirmed as yet concerning the financial agreements between Ronaldo and the Spanish Giants. However, fresh reports suggest that the Fifa Player of the Year will appear at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium for the first time with his new Real Madrid shirt on July 6.
25,000 fans are expected to attend the glamorous ceremony of Cristiano Ronaldoâ€™s official unveiling as a Real Madrid player. This number beats by far the record set by Robinho when 11,000 fans went to the stadium to see him in 2005, on August, 26.
In addition, Cristiano Ronaldo might probably break Zinedine Zidanâ€™s record for media attendance during an official reception. 400 accredited journalists attended the Algerian-born French legendâ€™s official ceremony whereas an estimated number of 500 reporters from over 25 countries should be present when on July 6.
Reports claim that the Spanish Giants have already begun working on invitations. The ceremony is also said to start at 20:00 CET in order to suit the availability of day workers. Therefore, televisions channels will have the opportunity to cover the event from 21:00 CET in their late news.
