Reports has it that Saudi Arabia is prepared to relax its marital laws to permit Cristiano Ronaldo, the new star signing for Al Nassr, to live with his girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez.
It is against the law for unmarried couples to cohabit in Saudi Arabia.
Ronaldo and Rodriguez will be living together in Saudi Arabia with their children, according to the Spanish news outlet Sport, and they are most likely not going to face any consequences for breaking the law.
Ronaldo left Manchester United by mutual consent following an inflammatory interview the Portuguese star gave to British reporter Piers Morgan in November, and he then joined Al Nassr.
The 37-year-old harshly criticized Man United’s management, claiming that the team has not improved since Sir Alex Ferguson left. He also criticized Erik ten Hag, the United coach, declaring that he lacked respect for him.
After a fantastic reception on arrival on Tuesday, Ronaldo was formally introduced as an Al Nassr player.
He claimed he made the decision to join the Saudi Arabian club in order to support the growth of the sport in the area and serve as an example for the local youth.
In addition, he said that the reason he decided to join the Arabian club was because he had “won everything” there is to win in Europe.
The staggering £173 million contract that Ronaldo signed with Al Nassr makes him the highest-paid footballer in the world.
Al Nassr has won the Arabian League nine times.
