Portuguese footballer Christiano Ronaldo has kept his future neighbours annoyed even before shifting to his $22 million luxury mansion near Lisbon, which is “already the most expensive house in the country”, Marca reported.
The football star’s dream house has reportedly been under construction for the last three years and it is yet to be completed until 2024.
Citing a Spanish newspaper Okdiario, the publication said that the construction site has all amenities designed by the family.
“Among them, the project will have four floors and four luxury suites, covered by huge glass walls overlooking the beautiful Portuguese landscape.”
Moreover, the mansion will have a cinema room, a service area, a gym, a tennis court, and two garages to park at least 20 luxury cars owned by Ronaldo.
Marca further stated that the years-long construction of the huge mansion has had the neighbours on the edge and the area residents are already “fed up”.
“We’ve had three years of construction. The house is so big that it looks like a hospital. My street has been cut off for months, my garden is full of dust. All because of the ‘pyramid’ of Pharaoh Ronaldo,” it quoted one of the neighbors who revealed their distress to Ok Diario.
It may be noted that the project is expected to be ready to move in by mid-June 2024. However, the ball player will not return until the completion of his contract with Al Nassr in June 2025.
By this time, Ronaldo will reach the age of 40 when he would like to retire, so he may be building this mansion as his retirement house.
