Cristiano Ronaldo and his family had to leave a £6 million mansion for a £3 million mansion in Manchester to escape from bleating sheep.
They also have to leave the 7 bedrooms luxurious mansion because of how close it is to a road and a public walk path for their safety.
When Cristiano Ronaldo agreed to leave Juventus for Manchester United, a club he once played for between 2003 and 2009, he settled for the mansion surrounded by 23 acres.
The mansion “is beautiful and is nestled in rolling fields and woodland”, a source revealed to a UK publication, The Sun. Despite how beautiful the mansion is, “it was also close to sheep which are very noisy early in the morning”, according to the source.
Apart from that, the mansion was built in such a way that passersby could see through the gate which is perceived to be a security threat.
The location of the mansion is perceived to be a problem for the recovering process of Cristiano Ronaldo after games despite its serenity.
Hence, Ronaldo, his lover, Georgina Rodriguez, and his four children – Alana Martina, Ronaldo Jr., Eva, and Mateo had to move to another 7 bedrooms Cheshire mansion in Manchester.
A former Manchester United star was an occupant of the £3 million mansion and it is not far from where Cristiano Ronaldo lived for almost 6 years before he left for Real Madrid in 2009.
The Sun reported that the £3 million mansion came with a swimming pool, a cinema room, CCTV cameras, electric gates, and a four-car garage.
For the safety of the footballer and his family, the area where the mansion is located is being patrolled by guards round the clock.
Even though the mansion is not too far away from nightlife, it is far away from public view due to the garden surrounding the area.
“His kids are in a private school and he hopes that once the buzz of his return to United dies down, he can take Georgina out and show her his favorite local spots”, a source said.
Since Ronaldo returned to Manchester United in August, the 36-year-old Portuguese star has played two competitive games. He scored two goals in the first game which was against Newcastle United.
Unfortunately for him and Manchester United, the second game which was a Champions League group stage game against Young Boys ended in a 2-1 defeat. Ronaldo scored United’s lone goal in the match.
