The football star, who recently made a switch to Sampdoria in Italy, is said to have splashed out a whopping sum of £18.5m on the historic property in Portofino, near Genoa in northern Italy
According to Corriere Dello Sport, the newly acquired mansion has a total number of 40 rooms and a swimming pool and is surrounded by 30,000 square metres of rolling parkland along the Tyrrhenian coast near the fishing village of Portofino.
Experts say it needs up to €3m of renovation work to restore it to its former glory.
