Although it was alleged he just wants to have the facility as an investment, magazine TV 7 Dias claimed he planned to use it as a family home after his retirement.

A source described as a future neighbour told the magazine:

The land was fenced off recently and it was purchased by Ronaldo.

Ronaldo owns a similar one to this villa in Madrid and he is neighbours with ex-teammate Gareth Bale.

The source added:

This is where he’s coming to live with his family when he finishes his career. Everyone round here knows it and of course we’re happy. Ronaldo is Ronaldo.

Quinta da Marinha is half an hour from Lisbon Airport and ten minutes from the centre of the coastal town of Cascais, the Lisbon coastline’s premier holiday destination.
