The 37-year-old has a legendary work ethic on and off the field and was earning $630,000 per week as a player for Manchester United, plus millions per year in endorsements, including a $1 billion-dollar lifetime deal with Nike. With that much money at his disposal, it’s no wonder the most followed person on Instagram (his current follower count is 506 million) has a real estate portfolio most can only dream of. Let’s take a peek into the many living quarters of one of soccer’s most prolific players, his partner Georgina Rodriguez, and his five children.
Ronaldo bought his first home in England for $7.1 million a couple of years after signing with elite soccer club Manchester United. Located 15 miles from Manchester in Alderley Edge, a posh village known to attract deep-pocketed homebuyers and famous soccer players (David and Victoria Beckham lived there from 2001 to 2005), the three-story, red-brick, contemporary-style new build had five bedrooms, an indoor pool, a steam room, theater room, and a gym at the time of the star player’s tenure. There are conflicting reports about the exact year Ronaldo bought the property, but title documents place the purchase in 2007. Attempts to find a buyer for the manse failed in 2009, when the in-demand player transferred to Spanish team Real Madrid; it was instead rented out, most notably to Man U player Luke Shaw in 2014 for $11,500 a month. Ronaldo was finally able to sell the house in 2019, but at an over $800,000 loss.
