Cristiano Ronaldo will begin his business career in the coming weeks. The Real Madrid striker will open a nightclub called "Seven" in reference to his jersey number with the club and the national team.

The club is located in Vilmoura, in the region of Algarve, where used to stand the congress hall for the Hotel Tivoli.

The locale has an extensive dance floor, very well equipped with diverse bars to attend clients; there will also be two exclusive VIP zones, as it is expected to be a spot for celebrities to spend their vacations in the Iberian country.

Cristiano Ronaldo is following the footsteps of another Portuguese legend, Luis Figo, who has an exclusive restaurant in the region. His business, ironically enough, also uses reference to Figo's number with Real Madrid, named "7ete" (seven in Portuguese).
