The Saudi Pro League is coming to the UK as sports broadcaster DAZN secured the exclusive rights to screen the burgeoning league.

Football fans will be able to see 3 live Saudi league games a week, with the season kicking off this Friday.

All games including Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr will be shown during the season.

Pro league side Al-Hilal made headlines with a world-record £259m bid for Paris St-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe in July, which the player has so far not entertained.

Saudi clubs have spent close to half a billion pounds on transfer fees recruiting the likes of Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema, Ngolo Kante, Jordan Henderson, Sadio Mane and Riyad Mahrez to make the switch to the far east this summer.
