THROUGH the years, as Cristiano Ronaldo has accrued an estimated wealth of £789million, he’s been able to splash out on luxury homes.

Life began for the Portuguese legend in a humble Madeira apartment, where he was raised and dreamed of football stardom.

And when he achieved the almost impossible, his career path took him from Sporting Lisbon to Manchester United, Real Madrid, Juventus, and back to the Red Devils.

Just weeks after returning to the UK, he was forced to swap mansions for a new £3million pad in Cheshire, after being kept awake by sheep and security issues prompting a change.

Of course, on the superstar wages he’s on, Ronaldo can upgrade his lifestyle at the drop of a hat.

Here’s where the 36-year-old five-time Ballon d’Or winner has lived and currently resides.

MADEIRA UPBRINGING

Ronaldo was born in Funchal and grew up in a modest home.

He shared a small room with his brothers and sisters, living a life a far-cry away from the one he lives today.

Back in 2019, Ronaldo reportedly visited his old home to show son Cristiano Jr where he came from.

“I was so excited for him to see where I grew up,” he told TVI.

“He went up with me and there were still some of the same people who had lived there at the time.

“I was moved, if I am honest, because I didn’t expect to see those people, and that touched me a bit.”

Ronaldo continued that Cristiano Jr, who is accustomed to a more lavish lifestyle, was shocked by the size of his dad’s former bedroom.

“My son turned to me and said: ‘Papa. Did you live here?’ He could not believe it.”

MANCHESTER

From 2003-2009, Ronaldo starred for Manchester United in his first spell with the club.

And like most of his team-mates at the time, he lived in the very exclusive Alderley Edge area.

The £3million mansion he called home for three of those years has five large bedrooms, his and hers dressing rooms with an en-suite, a huge garden and charming terraces.

The property also features an indoor swimming pool, steam room, jacuzzi, gym and cinema room.

When Ronaldo left the Premier League giants, he kept the property for a further nine years before finally listing it.

MADRID

Following his then-record breaking transfer to Real Madrid for £80million, a more substantial property was needed.

He chose a stunning £4.8million abode in the expensive La Finca neighbourhood, designed by renowned architect Joaquin Torres.

The pad has both an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, which Ronaldo used to regularly exercise in.

The home also includes a state-of-the-art gym, equipped with treadmills, a weights section and stretching zone, so Ronaldo could keep in shape at home.

Outside, the giant plot has a football pitch next to the outside swimming pool and relaxation area with sun loungers and chairs.

Ronaldo also had the door handles monogrammed with his initials.

TURIN

Another move, another new home.

In 2018, Ronaldo moved to Juventus. And he needed a house that was fit for the new king of Turin.

It featured two adjoining villas found on a private road guarded by security, which leads to an entrance gate.

The villas themselves have separate entrances, and are surrounded by lush gardens and vegetation.

Ronaldo fell in love with the home because of its similarities with his Madrid property.

There’s a state-of-the-art gym that he and former shop assistant Georgina loved to use together. And there’s also a swimming pool, which Ronaldo cooled down in by doing a few laps following a strenuous session lifting weights.

The property is so high up, ‘it’s as if Turin were at the feet of CR7, a tribute of the city to the long-awaited and newly-arrived champion,’ La Gazzetta dello Sport reported at the time of purchase.

THE HOLIDAY HOME

In 2019, Ronaldo reportedly spent £1.4million on a holiday home in the Costa del Sol.

The area the lavish house sits in is called ‘The Superstars Cul-De-Sac’ because of the number of famous residents who live there.

UFC star Conor McGregor is also believed to own a property nearby.

It’s got four bedrooms, high-vaulted ceilings and incredible views of the sea.

There’s a private golf course, the driveway is lit up by LED lights, private gyms, an in-built cinema and infinity pool.

What’s good for Conor is definitely good enough for Ronaldo.

BACK TO MADEIRA

Home is where the heart is for Ron.

His seven-storey mansion in Funchal was finally finished last summer – four years after the former Manchester United No7 bought a warehouse and converted it into this luxury abode.

It is believed Ronaldo splashed around £7million to recover the dream home, with missus Georgina Rodriguez smitten by its incredible sea view, as well as its amenities including TWO Olympic-sized swimming pools, jacuzzi and a football pitch.

It’s not known how many bedrooms and bathrooms the property boasts, however there are four floors above ground.

Ron uses the property as another holiday home, when he visits his family in Funchal and spent time in the summer there while in quarantine.

Unfortunately though, the home was burgled by opportunistic thieves who reportedly found the garage door was unlocked and broke in.

A signed Juventus shirt was believed to be taken, as well as a number of small possessions.
