Cristiano Ronaldo sells Cheshire mansion he lived in while playing at Manchester United for £3.25m

Football star Cristiano Ronaldo has sold the Cheshire mansion he lived in while playing for Manchester United – for £645,000 less than he had bought it for in 2008.

Ronaldo, 33, paid £3,895,000 for the five-bedroom property in Alderley Edge, a hotspot for Premier League footballers. 

However, the superstar, now playing in Italy with Juventus, has sold the house for just £3,250,000.

Ronaldo bought the three-floor house just a year before signing for Spanish giants Real Madrid. 

It features a large swimming pool, hot tub and steam room as well as a gym, cinema and games room. 

Some reports claim that the Portuguese international first tried to sell the mansion in 2009, but was unable to find a buyer.

Since 2014, Manchester United and England defender Luke Shaw has rented the property, paying £7,000-a-month.

However, Ronaldo put the property on the market for permanent sale a week before Christmas, according to Rightmove.

It has now been bought, ‘subject to contract’. 

Ronaldo hit the headlines recently after police in Las Vegas issued a warrant to obtain his DNA following claims he raped a woman in the US city nine years ago.

Former school teacher Kathryn Mayorga claims that the Juventus forward raped her at his Las Vegas hotel room in June 2009 and since going public with her case this year, Ronaldo has faced intense scrutiny.

Police said in a statement that an official request has been submitted to Italian authorities for a DNA sample from the player.

Ronaldo has continuously refuted the allegations, despite a £287,000 hush-money payment to Ms Mayorga in 2010, saying that the sex was consensual.

Back in early October, Ronaldo – who had been silent until then, tweeted to say he firmly denied the claims.

‘I firmly deny the accusations being issued against me. Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in.

‘Keen as I may be to clear my name, I refuse to feed the media spectacle created by people seeking to promote themselves at my expense,’ he said.
