Rabat – Real Madrid’ super star, Cristiano Ronaldo, is allegedly spending the last days of 2015 in Fez, Morocco’s spiritual capital.
According to Moroccan daily L’Economiste, the Portuguese player arrived in Fez on Sunday alongside his new girlfriend, French-Portuguese top model, Mélanie Martins. The couple is reportedly staying at Riyad Fraj, in Ziat neighborhood in the old part of Fez.
Spanish and Moroccan media reported on Monday that the three-time Ballon d’Or winner was expected to spend his New Year’s Eve in Marrakech along with his teammate Karim Benzema and his Moroccan friend, Badr Hari.
Ronaldo’s continuous trip to Morocco have raised a number of questions on the real reasons behind them.
Earlier this month, Spanish and British media claimed that Ronaldo was in a “gay relationship” with his Moroccan friend Badr Hari.
None of the two celebrities reacted to this rumor. On Monday December 21, Portuguese magazine Nova Gente published photos of Ronaldo and Martins on its cover page, and claimed that the supermodel is Ronaldo’s new girlfriend.
The magazine described Melanie as “the secret of Morocco,” adding that she is the reason behind Ronaldo’s “mysterious trips.”
However, in an interview with Moroccan website Alyaoum24, Melanie has denied being in an intimate relationship with Cristiano, adding that she goes continuously to Morocco for professional reasons.
“People can make up whatever they want. I’m here for professional reasons and seriously I have no idea what (Ronaldo) does here,” the Portuguese model said, noting that Morocco is “one of her favorite destinations.”
However, when asked whether they know each other, Mélanie was reluctant to speak. “I prefer not to answer, because it is a sensitive issue,” she said.
