Friendship has a strong bond in the game, on or off field, as Juventus talisman Cristiano Ronaldo is about to sell his Portuguese villa to fellow countryman and ex Real Madrid teammate Pepe at a loss, but that has not bothered the Portguese superstar to go ahead and finalise the deal.
Ronaldo built the mansion in Peneda-Geres, Portugal’s national park, back in 2012 for £3.5 million. The estate, located high in the mountains is surrounded by woodlands, and also includes a dock and a helipad for both water and air commute.
Although the 34 year old forward is taking a hit of £1.25 million, as sources from The Sun suggest, but the wage at Turin can make up for it in just seven days.
Pepe, the 36 year old center back who returned to his boyhood club FC Porto this January from Turkish side Beşiktaş JK, has made a pretty sweet bargain on his national team buddy at £2.3 million.
Located on the banks of the Cávado River, the two storeyed villa covers an estimated 800 square meter of land, containing three bedrooms, a jacuzzi, a master suite and also a Turkish bath- which will make the Süper Lig returned defender feel right at home.
Check out some photos of the spectacular mansion below:
Both Ronaldo and Pepe have had bright spells together in their career- winning the UEFA Euro 2016 tournament for Portugal, and also won two La Liga and three Champions League trophies as Galacticos.
