Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo was spotted in Madrid with his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez, not for his former club Real Madrid but to open a hair transplant clinic.

Ronaldo, who left Madrid in the summer, returned to the Spanish city to inaugurate the six-storey hair transplant clinic called Isparya.

Lately, Ronaldo said, "In addition to football, I am passionate about health, technology and research, they are areas which I wanted to invest in."  

The centre will be managed by his long-term girlfriend Rodriguez.

The pair was spotted in a chauffeur-driven car when they prepared to open the doors to the centre.

As per the reports, the centre will employ over 150 professionals. The centre has the capacity to perform 18 hair transplants a day.

The Portuguese football player has reportedly invested €1 million into his latest venture and it is expected to add a further €25 million over the next three to four years.

Meanwhile, European football's governing body charged the 34-year-old player for a provocative gesture mocking Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone after Juventus eliminated the Spanish club from the Champions League.

UEFA said its disciplinary panel will judge the charge of "improper conduct" on Thursday.

Simeone was fined $22,700 by UEFA for making an obscene gesture after Atletico took the lead in a 2-0 win in the first leg of their last 16 encounter.

After his hat-trick overturned the tie, Ronaldo celebrated by mimicking Simeone's action.
