CRISTIANO RONALDO revealed his inner circle during his 38th birthday party in Saudi Arabia.
The Portuguese star celebrated his birthday over the weekend with a low-key affair, although he did have three cakes.
The former Manchester United star was joined by his partner Georgina Rodríguez along with his closest friends.
Among the group was Edu Aguirre, who is an El Chiringuito journalist, and his wife Julia Salmean, as well as Ricky Refuge, Ronaldo’s personal manager.
Aguirre and Ronaldo began a friendship during his time at Real Madrid, while their partners often take trips together.
After Aguirre’s trip, he wrote on Instagram: “Happy Birthday brother!!
“The best is always yet to come.”
There was also Miguel Marques, who is an asset manager for the now 38-year-old.
He looks after Ronaldo’s personal fortune, which is set to grow after joining Saudi side Al-Nassr on a £173million-per-year contract.
Ronaldo also had his long-term friends Miguel Paixao and Jose Semedo.

Paixao was his roommate during his time at Sporting Lisbon when he was a teenager.
While Ronaldo has previously described Semedo as “one of the best friends that life has given me”.
However, there was no sports agent Jorge Mendes, which comes after reports that the pair had split.
Ronaldo shared pictures of his birthday jubilations on Instagram, with the caption: “Thank you everyone for all the birthday messages.
“Grateful to have spent the day with my family and friends.”
