Cristiano Ronaldo just injected jet fuel into the fiery rumors that he’s moving across the pond when his contract with Real Madrid expires in 2018.
The New York Post reports that the Portuguese soccer star just dropped a cool $18.5 million on an apartment in New York City’s Trump Tower. Before Ronaldo purchased it, the 2,500-square-foot pad belonged to Alessandro Proto — a business partner of Donald Trump’s.
Bonnie Chajet of Warburg Realty handled the listing.
Ronaldo’s new Trump Tower apartment on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue doesn’t look anything like a pad the stylish footballer might buy — yet.
The reason for the relatively modest apartment’s surprisingly high price is that it is an “L apartment” in Trump Tower. Read: It has uncompromising and panoramic views of Central Park.
The interior was designed by Juan Pablo Molyneux, who is well-known known for his “maximalism” style.
The family room is also a bit small, but the large floor-to-ceiling windows let in plenty of light.
Three bedrooms occupy the 2,500-square-foot apartment.
