Take a tour of Ronaldo's €17m apartment in Trump Tower

Do you need a roommate, Cristiano?

CRISTIANO RONALDO HAS added fuel to the fiery rumours he’s moving across the pond when his contract with Real Madrid expires in 2018.

The New York Post reports that the Portuguese soccer star just dropped a cool $18.5 million (€16.7 million) on an apartment in New York City’s Trump Tower.


Before Ronaldo purchased it, the 2,500-square-foot pad belonged to Alessandro Proto — a business partner of Donald Trump’s.

Bonnie Chajet of Warburg Realty handled the listing.

Ronaldo’s new Trump Tower apartment on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue doesn’t look anything like a pad the stylish footballer might buy — yet.


The reason for the relatively modest apartment’s surprisingly high price is that it an ‘L apartment’ in Trump Tower, meaning it has uncompromising and panoramic views of Central Park.


The interior was designed by Juan Pablo Molyneux, who is well-known known for his ‘maximalism’ style.


The kitchen is a bit cramped, but there is space for a small breakfast nook.


The family room is also a bit small, but the large floor-to-ceiling windows let in plenty of light.


Three bedrooms occupy the 2,500-square-foot apartment.


The smaller third bedroom would make a perfect study or home office.


The bathrooms have plenty of marble and mirrors.


Even the shower has incredible views.
