Rabat – Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has bought an $18.5 million flat in New York, fuelling speculation of a future switch to the US to play in the MLS League.
30-year-old Ronaldo has been linked with a move to the US when his contract with Real Madrid expires in 2018, following the lead of the likes of Andrea Pirlo and Frank Lampard who have recently joined New York City for the later stages of their careers.
The Portuguese international has paid the massive amount of money for a 2,509 sq. ft flat in Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue, the 57th tallest skyscraper in Manhattan. The Trump Tower is owned by US billionaire and presidential candidate from the Republican ticket Donald Trump.
According to the Trump’s Organization website, “the residential condominiums comprise floors 30 through 68 and are considered one of the world’s elite luxury residences, catering to public figures, athletes, celebrities and other affluent sophisticates.”
The luxurious loft was previously the property of Italian real-estate mogul Alessandro Proto, a partner of controversial TV personality Donald Trump.
