Cristiano Ronaldo – the man who brought you such comments as â€œThe possibilities of me going to Real Madrid are great,â€ and â€œIâ€™ve said a million times that Iâ€™d love to play in Spainâ€ – has celebrated his decision to stay at Manchester United by splashing out on a Â£350,000 ($700,000) Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe.
The Portuguese midfielder bought the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe from Doncaster-based luxury car dealer Liquid 45. He gave instructions for it to be â€œfully loaded,â€ a trade term for all the added extras.
Cristiano, 23, also owns an Aston Martin, a BMW 6 Series, a Bentley Continental and a Ferrari. As a matter of fact, the Phantom will replace his Â£140,000 Bentley Continental.
Itâ€™s also believed Ronaldo was so impressed with the Bugatti Veyron he raced in a Nike commercial he put his name down on the waiting list for the Â£830,000 ($1.66M) hypercar (check out our â€œvideo of the weekâ€ on the right side)
No worries, The Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupeâ€™s Â£350,000 pricetag ($700,000) wouldnâ€™t have deterred the the 23-year-old player star who is thought to earn around Â£130,000 per week ($260,000).
Ronaldoâ€™s latest extravagance is likely to intensify the car park war going on at Manchester United where multi-millionaire footballers such as Rio Ferdinand and Wayne Rooney are continuously trying to outdo each other with their choice of motor. Via Autotrader
