Saudi Arabia is reportedly set to bend its marriage law to allow Al Nassr new star signing Cristiano Ronaldo to live with his partner, Georgina Rodriguez.
Saudi Arabia marriage law forbids couples that are not married from living together.
However, Spanish news outlet, Sport, revealed that Ronaldo and Rodriguez will be living together in Saudi Arabia and are most likely not going to be punished for breaking the law.
Ronaldo joined Al Nassr from Manchester United after his contract with the club was terminated by mutual agreement following an explosive interview the Portuguese star had in November with British presenter, Piers Morgan.
The 37-year-old heavily criticised the management of Man United saying there had been no improvement at the club since Sir Alex Ferguson left. He also lashed United coach Erik ten Hag, saying he had no respect for him.
Ronaldo was officially unveiled as an Al Nassr player on Tuesday after receiving a thrilling welcome upon arrival.
He said he chose to join the Saudi Arabian club because he wanted to help in developing the sport in the region and be a mentor to the younger generation there.
He also said he chose to join the Arabian club because he had “won everything” there is to win in Europe.
The deal signed with Al Nassr is a whooping £173m per year deal that has made Ronaldo the highest paid footballer in the world.
Al Nassr have won the Arabian league nine times.
