In the grand scheme of his career, Cristiano Ronaldo, arguably one of the top players ever to set foot on a football pitch, hasn't been long out of Spain. He's barely been at his new club Juventus for a year. But his heart still clearly lies on the Iberian peninsula, as indicated by his recent desire purchase of a brand new pad set to host his family on their holidays to Spain's glittering Costa Del Sol coastline.

The house reportedly set Ronaldo back a rather modest (relatively speaking) $1.6 million and was built by the Otero Group, a luxury villa developer. That may seem like a rather small figure for a footballer who has routinely featured in Forbes' list of the world's highest-paid athletes for the last decade. The Portuguese forward reportedly pulled in $109 million alone last year.

But according to those in the know, the holiday house forms just a small part of a $47 million property portfolio owned by Ronaldo, which also includes a home in his club's home town of Turin, an apartment in New York City's Trump Tower, and a pad in La Finca, where he lived during his days at Real Madrid

The Sun (so take this with a grain of salt) reports that Ronaldo now has his heart set on the Villa you see here, which sits in 'The Heights': a luxury development adjacent to La Resina golf and country club estate. Dubbed 'The Superstar's Cul De Sac,' the area is also reportedly home to Conor McGregor.

Otero, a renowned luxury developer, are known for kitting out their villas with all the mod cons. It's likely that Ronaldo's new villa would have features like a built-in theatre, LED driveways and an infinity pool. Inside it's, of course, a picture of sleek, modern luxury, with an open-plan living, kitchen and dining area, an outdoor dining area, a spacious garden, and vast bedrooms with walk-in wardrobes.

It's also just a short distance from the actual Mediterranean Sea if Ronaldo feels like kicking it with the flocks of obese English tourists that descend on the Costa Del Sol every European summer.
