Cristiano Ronaldo Selling Former Manchester Mansion for £3.25M
The Juventus star bought the three-story house in England 11 years ago.
Cristiano Ronaldo left Manchester United almost a decade ago and it’s no surprise that the international soccer superstar is ready to bid farewell to his home in the English village of Alderley Edge.
Ronaldo, who now plays forward for Italian club Juventus, listed the five-bedroom, on Monday for £3.25 million (US$4.1 million). This is according to listing records. The home is just 15 miles away from his former playing ground at Old Trafford.
The former Manchester United star is set to take a £600,000 loss if it sells for that asking price. This is because he purchased the house for £3.895 million over a decade ago, according to a title document filed with the Land Registry in 2007.
Images of the house reveal Cristiano Ronaldo’s surprisingly grotesque taste in furnishings. The austere decor left in the house is almost exclusively black, including a black shag and cowhide rugs, a plush charcoal-grey couch and even sheer black curtains, according to a description by Mansion Global website.

Apart from that, the home has fairly traditional finishes, including light stone-tile and hardwood floors and tall windows.
There’s also a slew of luxurious facilities, including a pool, spacious white-and-black sleek kitchen (allegedly Juventus’s team colours), a steam room, cinema room and a gym, according to images of the house, which is listing with local real estate agency Benson Bunch in the UK.
This is the second time the Portuguese footballer is marketing his former English home. The property was first listed for sale in 2013 for £3.75 million, according to an old listing for the home.
