Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the biggest football stars in the world. The athlete’s name is often mentioned with the best of all time. The striker plays for Premier League club Manchester United, returning to the team after spending part of his career with Real Madrid and Juventus Football Club. He is also captain of the Portugal national team and has won more than 30 trophies during his career.
But his real estate portfolio is almost as impressive as what he does on the ground. Ronaldo owns several luxury homes, including spacious villas and a seven-story mansion. Here is an overview of some of these properties.
Ronaldo’s Spanish and Italian villas
One of Ronaldo’s villas is located in the affluent neighborhood of La Finca, north of Madrid, Spain. The footballer has owned the house for several years. It has 8,600 square feet of living space and is surrounded by an additional 32,000 square feet of green space. Architectural Digest noted that the home has an indoor hot tub and gym. But the place he and his girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez, have the most fun is in their living room watching the big flat-screen TV with their kids. Outback, there is a huge terrace and a swimming pool. Moreover, Ronaldo can practice his game outside whenever he wants on his own football pitch.
Ronaldo and his family also have a villa on the outskirts of Turin, Italy. Well, make it two villas. The separate villas each have their own entrance and offer great city views with floor-to-ceiling windows. This residence also has a gym and an indoor swimming pool.
Anyone who follows Ronaldo on social media has seen photos from inside both villas.
His seven-storey mansion in Portugal
Another place the athlete owns is a seven-story mansion in Madeira, which is the island where he grew up.
The $9.7 million luxury abode was once a warehouse. He bought the building in 2015 and had it transformed into a huge house that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. Some of the property’s amenities include a small soccer practice field, a rooftop pool, a spa, and a five-car garage for Ronaldo’s expensive car collection.
The soccer star recently sold his NYC pad at a loss
Ronaldo no longer owns a place inside Trump Tower after recently selling his condo.
In 2015, the athlete spent $18.5 million on his apartment. Four years later, he tried to offload it for half that amount, but when it didn’t sell, he lowered the price to $7.99 million. According to Realtor.com, it sold for an even lower price in late 2021.
Luxury real estate expert Dolly Lenz, CEO and Founder of Dolly Lenz Real Estate, has given her thoughts on why Ronaldo had to suffer such a loss on the condo. “He certainly paid way too much. So that answers part of the question. Then the perfect storm of COVID and bad luck,” she said, noting that New York real estate brokers were locked down and unable to show property.
