Cristiano Ronaldo is moving on up.
We’re not sure if the soccer superstar is moving to the east side of Madrid, Manchester or elsewhere, but he’s definitely moving after he put his house up for sale.
Ronaldo’s Spanish villa has been listed on the website of Madrid-based property agency Promora. The 27-year-old hopes to fetch a cool €5.4 million ($7.1 million) for the villa, which is located in the suburban Madrid.
His home sits on over an acre of land. It includes a seven-bedroom mansion, two swimming pools and an “enormous garden.”
While it’s possible that Ronaldo is merely looking for a better home with a better garden in the greater-Madrid area, it’s more likely that he is planning on leaving the Spanish capital altogether.
Ronaldo asked to leave Real Madrid last August, but club President Florentino Perez refused to sell him. Ronaldo then reportedly rejected the chance to sign a new contract in December. He is set to resume contract negotiations in the coming weeks. His current deal expires in 2015, and Real Madrid could sell him this summer if he does not pen an extension.
Any club in the world would love to have Ronaldo, but only a select few have a realistic chance of signing him this summer. Manchester United, Chelsea and PSG have all been linked with the Portuguese forward in recent months, and they are among the few clubs in world soccer that can pay the hefty transfer fee Real Madrid would demand and salary Ronaldo would want.
