Cristiano Ronaldo just injected jet fuel into the fiery rumors that he’s joining the MLS once his contract with Real Madrid expires in 2018. The New York Post reports that the Portuguese football star just dropped a cool $18.5 million on an apartment in New York City’s Trump Tower.
The 2,510 square foot, three-bedroom apartment is one of Trump Tower’s extremely desirable “L-Line” spaces. The penthouses on the L-Line offer incredible panoramic views of all of Central Park, the Hudson River to the West, and iconic buildings, like the Freedom Tower, Empire State Building, and the Chrysler Building to the South, according to the apartment’s listing. This explains why the price might seem astronomical for a space of this size.Ronaldo’s new pad also includes two separate marble bathtubs, a dining area that overlooks Central Park, and a gourmet kitchen. The gaudy apartment was designed by Juan Pablo Molyneux, who is best known for the maximalism style you see here.
