Fans of Ronaldo knows that he recently joined Al-Nassr. He joined the Saudi Arabian club after his splendid exit from Manchester United Club before the world cup began.


According to the current laws of Saudi Arabia, unmarried couples are prohibited from living together. This was a potentially big problem for Ronaldo, who has not married his partner yet.


This time, Saudi Arabia has changed. It will allow Ronaldo and Rodríguez to live together as an exception. However, she will still have to abide by several other Saudi Arabian laws, like wearing an Abaya in public and not wearing tight-fitting or low-cut clothing.

Many Instagram users were not happy with the decision. Some shared their opinion via the platform. One said, “Rules are made for poor people.” Another user said Nothing new here. Laws have never been applicable when they get in the way of profit.”

This decision clearly shows that when you are the most marketable asset in a country, you automatically get some bargaining power.


In other news about Ronaldo, he was offered “many opportunities” to play in the US, Europe, Brazil, and Australia. Yes, the player has admitted the same. The news of Australia approaching the star player was a bit surprising and made people talk.

So, Australian Professional Leagues CEO Danny Townsend had to come out and say something. He confirmed negotiations were had with Ronaldo. He stated, “We had interesting discussions, and there was genuine interest, but it’s clear he has other priorities at this stage.”


Playing for Saudi Arabia, a country he referred to as “South Africa” during his opening press conference with Al Nassr, is beneficial for the international player. Cristiano Ronaldo will be paid US$200 million (AU$297.5 million annually. And changing the laws to suit the player certainly indicates how much they value him.
