Insiders said Algeria-born Manchester City ace Riyad, 30, and 23-year-old Taylor will have a second ceremony to make their union legal in the UK.

A source explained: “Riyad and Taylor are now legally married under Islamic law following their ceremony late last year. 

“For them as a couple it was important to follow the traditions of his religion.

“The ceremony was short but sweet and has started them on their path to their second wedding which is very much going to be the main event. Taylor and Riyad are so excited and are very much in love.”
