Cristiano Ronaldo just injected jet fuel into the fiery rumours that he’s moving across the pond when his contract with Real Madrid expires in 2018.
The New York Post reports that the Portuguese soccer star just dropped a cool $US18.5 million on an apartment in New York City’s Trump Tower. Before Ronaldo purchased it, the 2,500-square-foot pad belonged to Alessandro Proto — a business partner of Donald Trump’s.
Bonnie Chajet of Warburg Realty handled the listing.
