It is estimated that he got $79 million in 2014 and what better way to spend your money than on real estate in New York. Cristiano Ronaldo’s $18.5 million apartment was own by Alessandro Proto, a business partner of Donald Trump. The luxurious apartment was carried out by the world-renowned designer Juan Pablo Molyneux.
The apartment has 2,500-square-feet and amazing view of Central Park from every room of the house. It has three-bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. The kitchen is a bit small but very modern. The bathrooms have elegant marble and lots of mirrors, it even has a window overlooking Central Park. The apartment is decorated in a maximilian style, typical for Juan Pablo Molyneux, and gives an almost royal feel. We don’t know if Cristiano Ronaldo will keep the design or change it into a more modern residence. Either way, the apartment is a great investment and a great space to live in. It is rumored that after Ronaldo’s Real Madrid contract expires in 2018, he might move in this new apartment.
