Local media report Juventus star Ronaldo, 34, bought the flat in the Portuguese capital of Lisbon in July of last year but news of its purchase has only recently surfaced.

It is reported to be 288 square metres (3,100 square feet) and includes a spa, an indoor swimming pool, a gym, the latest in electro domestics and three large bedrooms.
Ronaldo’s latest real estate acquisition is located next to the Eduardo VII Park, close to the neighbourhood he spent some of his humble beginnings and where he recently admitted he received hamburgers from a restaurant given to him by some of the kitchen staff.
The flat adds to the Ronaldo’s large property empire, with the former Manchester United star recently selling a stunning mansion for 2.5 million EUR (2.09 million GBP) to his former Real Madrid teammate Pepe located in the Geres area of northern Portugal.
The mansion was reportedly built from the ground up ten years ago during his time at Manchester United and was used when the superstar wanted to enjoy some privacy, however, the site has since become a tourist spot for football lovers.
Ronaldo was bought by Juventus from Spanish club giants Real Madrid for 105.3 million GBP in 2018.
Ronaldo scored twice in Juventus 3-1 win over Udinese this weekend. They are equals on 39 points in Serie A with Inter Milan but are second on goal difference.
