CRISTIANO RONALDO has just 15 days to demolish his rooftop glass gazebo at his £6.5million Lisbon penthouse, or submit a legalisation process, according to reports in Portugal.
The Portugal international was presented with two options by the local authorities on July 21 regarding the illegal construction.
According to TVi24, the first giving Ronaldo just 15 days to demolish the glass gazebo structure, restoring it to its previous state.
Or Ronaldo must submit a legalisation process to the Lisbon City Council, which could extend the deadline by 30 days.
If the football superstar opts for legalisation, the situation will not be resolved immediately a Lisbon City Council source told TVi24.
The report also states that disgruntled architect of the building, Jose Mateus, assisted with the inspection of the glass gazebo.
Mateus stated at the time of the inspection: “He bought an apartment in the Castilho 203 building, whose architecture was designed by ARX, a studio that I founded with my brother Nuno in 1991 and which bases his work, like CR7, on extreme dedication, very high levels of demand, very hard daily work.
“Watching the ignoble disrespect and defilement of our work, of our architecture, without the cumulative consent of architects, neighbours and without a project approved by the CML, building in the beautiful ‘old way’ a marquee on the crown of the building, is something which I’m not going to watch stopped.
Mateus has also previously stated that he has lot respect for Portugal legend Ronaldo because of the row over the glass gazebo.
Mateus raged: “The admiration and respect I had for Cristiano Ronaldo, an excellent and inspirational athlete and an example for all that that I highlighted many times to my children and pupils, has been shattered.”
The £6.5m penthouse stuck in the middle of the glass gazebo row is one of four pricey homes the football ace plans on spending time at with his family once he hangs up the boots.
