The Portuguese legend’s life began in a modest flat on the island of Madeira, where he was raised and aspired to be a famous football player.

And when he did, his career path took him from Sporting Lisbon to Manchester United, Real Madrid, Juventus, and back to the Red Devils. It was nearly impossible.
After only a few weeks in the UK, he was pressured into selling his mansions and purchasing a new £3 million home in Cheshire because sheep were keeping him awake at night and there were concerns about his safety. Ronaldo is currently paid like a superstar, so it should come as no surprise that he can immediately improve his standard of living.
This is the home of the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who is now 36 years old and has previously lived here. Ronaldo was born in Funchal, and his upbringing was far from lavish.
He and his siblings and sisters used to live in a cramped space, and their lives were very different from the ones he leads now.
Ronaldo allegedly returned to his childhood home in 2019 to show his son Cristiano Jr. where he came from.
“I was so excited for him to see where I grew up,” he explained to TVI.
“He came up with me, and some of the people who had lived there back then were still there.”
“If I’m being honest, I was moved because I didn’t expect to see those people, and that touched me a little,” the speaker said. “I was moved because I was surprised to see those people.”
Ronaldo went on to say that Cristiano Jr., who is used to a more affluent lifestyle, was taken aback by the size of his father’s previous bedroom.
“When my son saw me, he turned to say, ‘Papa.’” Did you ever live in this house? What he was hearing was unbelievable to him.

Humble Ronaldo once cleaned the streets
Ronaldo played for Manchester United for the first time from 2003 to 2009. And, like most of his teammates at the time, he lived in the posh Alderley Edge neighborhood.
The £3 million mansion he called home for three of those years has five large bedrooms, his and her dressing rooms with en-suites, a large garden, and charming terraces.
The property also has an indoor pool, a steam room, a jacuzzi, a gym, and a cinema room.
After leaving the Premier League giants, Ronaldo kept the property for another nine years before listing it.

An indoor swimming pool completes the lavish feel of Ronaldo’s former Manchester home
After his then-record-breaking sale to Real Madrid for £80 million, they needed a larger home to accommodate their growing family.
He chose a magnificent home in the upscale La Finca neighborhood for £4.8 million, designed by well-known architect Joaquin Torres. The property has an indoor swimming pool as well as an outdoor swimming pool, which Ronaldo used frequently for workouts.
Ronaldo will be able to maintain his athleticism without leaving his home, thanks to the cutting-edge fitness center, which includes treadmills, weights, and a stretching area.
On the expansive outdoor property, a football pitch is located right next to the swimming pool and the relaxation area, which is furnished with sun loungers and chairs. Furthermore, Ronaldo had his initials engraved on each of the door handles.

Another relocation, this time to a brand-new house. Ronaldo left Real Madrid for Juventus in 2018. In addition, he required a residence befitting of his position as Turin’s new king.
It featured two adjacent villas on a private road that led to an entrance gate and was patrolled by security personnel. The villas each have their entrances and are surrounded by lush gardens and flora. One of the reasons he fell in love with the house was its resemblance to the one Ronaldo owned in Madrid.
He and his former shop employee, Georgina, were both big fans of going to the cutting-edge fitness center together. There is also a swimming pool, where Ronaldo went to relax after a particularly strenuous session of weight lifting. He went swimming for a few laps.
Because of the property’s elevated location, one commentator said, “it’s as if Turin were at CR7’s feet, a city tribute to the long-awaited and newly-arrived champion.” During the s, an article was published in La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Ronaldo works out in the state of the art gyms
Ronaldo reportedly spent £1.4 million on a holiday home on the Costa del Sol in 2019.
The area where the lavish house is located is known as ‘The Superstars Cul-De-Sac’ due to the number of famous residents who live there. Conor McGregor, the UFC fighter, is also thought to own property nearby.
It has four bedrooms, high-vaulted ceilings, and stunning sea views. There’s a private golf course, an LED-lit driveway, private gyms, an in-house cinema, and an infinity pool. What works for Conor is sufficient for Ronaldo.
