CRISTIANO RONALDO and his family donned hard hats as the Juventus star visited the site of his luxury Pestana CR7 hotel in Marrakesh.

The Moroccan city remains a popular holiday destination for the 34-year-old, who toasted New Year's Eve there in 2017 with former teammate Karim Benzema.

On his latest visit to The Red City, the Portuguese superstar announced the opening date of "the next and most exciting" of his hotels in early 2020.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner was joined on the construction site by his stunning girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez and his eldest son, Cristiano Jr.

The Marrakesh hotel, a 50-50 investment between Ronaldo and Portuguese group Pestana, is the latest property to add to the former Real Madrid's star's lavish portfolio.

The lifestyle project, unveiled at the beginning of 2018, will contain 168 rooms and two restaurants, a business and fitness centre, as well as a spa and a swimming pool.

The Pestana CR7 of Marrakech is one of three luxury accommodations Ronaldo is opening next year, with the others located in Madrid and New York.

Ronaldo already has two idyllic spots open since entering the hotel business in 2016 - one in Lisbon and one in Funchal, his hometown and capital of the island of Madeira.

The Portuguese, who also owns a stunning £12million apartment inside Trump Tower in the Big Apple, recently announced plans for a Paris edition of his burgeoning chain.

The 210-room hotspot is set to be located on the "Left Bank" of the city on the southern side of the Seine River in France's capital and cost a reported £53m.

Despite his ambitions to conquer the business world, Ronaldo recently hinted that he won't step away from football when he finally decides to hang up his boots.

The former Manchester United star revealed he could continue his career as a manager after scoring his 600th club goal during last month's draw with Inter Milan.

The 34-year-old reached yet another milestone when he became the first player ever to win domestic titles in England, Spain and Italy after Juve clinched the title.

Ronaldo remains under contract in Turin until 2022, but has claimed he will consider a coaching role when he retires.

Speaking to ICON magazine, he insisted: "I'm not ruling it out."
