CRISTIANO RONALDO bought the most expensive flat ever sold in Portugal after paying £6million for the property that includes a gym and indoor swimming pool.
The dazzling penthouse is located next to the Eduardo VII Park, close to the neighbourhood where Ronaldo spent some of his humble beginnings.
Local media report the Man Utd star got the flat in the Portuguese capital in July in the summer of 2018 but news of its purchase only surfaced a year later.
According to PrimeTimeZone, it is the most expensive apartment ever sold in Portugal.
The national skipper is said to have beaten off bids from two other millionaires as he splashed the cash on the 3,100 square feet flat in the Avenida de Liberdade area of the city.
Inside includes a spa, a swimming pool, a gym, as well as three large bedrooms.
It comes after he sold a mansion for £2m to his former Real Madrid team-mate Pepe, located in the Geres area of northern Portugal.
Ronaldo had the mansion built from the ground up during his first stint at Manchester United.
He used the property in his homeland when he wanted to enjoy some privacy, however, the site has since become a tourist spot for football lovers.
Ronaldo lives with his partner Georgina Rodriguez and five children in Manchester after the Portuguese icon made the switch back from back last summer.
Before that, he resided in a stunning home in Madrid. His neighbour Elizabeth, better known as Betty, could not be more complimentary of the way he lives his life.
She said: “A lot of silence, no parties. I’ve never seen cars pass by our private road.
“I often see him at the wheel of a Rolls-Royce. We see him pass every day, with tinted windows. But in the garage of his house he also has sports cars, like a Lotus.
“He has a beautiful indoor pool and a small garden. and well taken care of with colourful flowers.
“I see Cristiano Junior often wandering with his skateboard, up and down the street that leads to our homes, always with the bodyguards behind.
“Like the mother, Georgina, also followed by a babysitter who helps her with both cars – one double for the twins and one individual.”
But in an interview with Piers Morgan, the 37-year-old opened up about his early struggles as a young boy living in Lisbon, playing for the club’s academy.
The multi-millionaire revealed he used to wait outside a McDonald’s restaurant because he was too poor to buy burgers for himself, and was helped by a group of women who handed out food to Ronaldo and his hungry friends.
