A supercar belonging to Portuguese football legend Cristiano Ronaldo – worth £1.8 million – crashed into a house in Majorca on Monday, reports Spain. The Manchester United striker is on holiday in the island with his family and is said to have sent the car to Mallorca.
He is set to return to the United Kingdom before the start of Manchester United’s pre-season later this month. According to El Periodico Mediterraneo, an employee of the Portuguese superstar was driving the Bugatti Veyron when it collided with the entrance of a house on Monday morning.
It is being told that the driver of the vehicle has not suffered any serious injuries, but it is being told that the front part of the vehicle has been badly damaged.
Among the richest athletes in the world, Ronaldo is known to own several luxury cars. The crashed car was reportedly one of two that were sent to the island for a holiday by the Portugal captain.
The front part of the Bugatti is believed to have been wrecked when investigators revealed that no other vehicles were involved.
Simultaneously, officials of the local police, Civil Guard employed by Banyola Town Hall were also present at the spot.
Ronaldo will be joined by a new manager after Erik ten Haag was appointed to the club after a mediocre outing last season. Although there were doubts whether the pair would be able to work together, both Ten Haag and Ronaldo have expressed their desire to move on.
“So much I know about him is that he has done a wonderful job for Ajax, that he is an experienced coach,” Ronaldo told the club’s website last month. “But we need to give him time. We are happy and excited not only as players, but also as supporters. I wish him all the best and believe that next year we are going to win the trophy.”
