Cristiano Ronaldo forced to leave $6m house just weeks after Man Utd return
The Manchester United legend was a late Premier League signing in the summer transfer market but 'flock' issues have hampered his new home life in England.
Manchester United's newest acquisition, Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo, has reportedly been forced to switch mansions due to an unbearable bleating sheep issue that stopped him and his family from sleeping.
Ronaldo is baaaaack!
Just a couple of weeks after Ronaldo arrived at the UK to complete a return to Old Trafford, he and his family -- his partner, Georgina Rodriguez, and their four kids -- moved from a $6million home to one half the price in Cheshire, according to The Sun's latest report.
Why? The sheep were too noisy
It may not seem like the most important element of his training, but the Portuguese star puts lots of focus into his need to rest before going out onto to the pitch to tear apart the opposition. But for an ultra-professional and multi-millionaire like him, the idea of leaving just because of some "very noisy in the early morning" mammals in the field seems excessive.
However, this wasn't the only reason to change homes. The fact that the property allowed a view inside its gates, as well as the land having a public footpath on it, had Ronaldo worried about the safety of him and his family and the lack of complete privacy.
The official report released by The Sun stated:
"While the property is beautiful and is nestled in rolling fields and woodland, it was also close to sheep which are very noisy early in the morning. It had a public footpath across the land and the road at the front gave a view inside its gates. Ronaldo is a true pro who places a lot on rest and recovery after games, so it was decided it was best if he and his family moved."
CR7 relocated into a $3m Cheshire mansion
However, despite his failed first attempt to find an adequate home in England, he is hardly slumming it in the place he chose to relocate to.
The family's new house in Cheshire includes a cinema room and a swimming pool for kids to enjoy, in addition to a four-car garage. Security is not going to be a problem this time, as it has CCTV cameras, electric gates and, as far as we understand, it will be patrolled by guards 24/7.
