Dubai developer Nakheel has signed a deal to lease a number of apartments to a company in which Portuguese Real Madrid player Cristiano Ronaldo is a shareholder, it was announced on Wednesday.

The master developer’s residential leasing team said it had leased 12 apartments in Discover Gardens to Sports Stars Media (SSM), which lists Ronaldo as a shareholder.

The units will be used by the firm’s Dubai-based team of IT engineers and Nakheel’s leasing team were presented with a signed Real Madrid shirt by SSM’s chairman Carlos Amaro.

"We are delighted to welcome the staff of Sports Stars Media to Discovery Gardens. Nakheel promotes sports and social interaction at its communities, so our partnership with Sports Stars Media is a natural fit. And, as a huge fan of football myself, it was real honour to receive a shirt personally signed by Ronaldo -- arguably one of the greatest players the world has ever seen,” said Hassan Musabih, director of leasing and property management at Nakheel.
