Fans Launch Petition Against Ronaldo's R249m US Apartment

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo owns an apartment worth R249 million in America – here is why fans reportedly want the Portuguese to sell the penthouse!

In 2015, it was reported that Ronaldo paid about $18.5 million (R255 million) for an apartment in Donald Trump's Trump Tower, but since Trump has become American president, it appears some fans want that to change.

According to The Washington Post, some of Ronaldo's fans have signed a petition in the hopes that the Portuguese will sell his apartment in the Trump Tower, amid rumours that the Los Blanco star is looking to buy another penthouse in the same building.

This is one of the rooms in the place:

The report claimed that close to 7 400 fans have signed the petition written by Joellen Catherine, and it is believed to state the following:

"As a lover of all things sports and believer in basic human rights, I was incredibly disappointed to learn Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has shelled out $18.5 million for an apartment in Trump Tower in New York City. Not only that, he is considering buying yet ANOTHER pad in the same building for a whopping $23 million.

"Just months into his presidency, Trump has trampled all over our human rights and has plans to do worse. He implemented a Muslim travel ban, killed protections for transgender students, rolled back the Clean Power Plan, and is ramping up efforts to build an inhumane border wall.

"Trump's administration is the epitome of cronyism and human rights abuses, and high-profile celebrities like Ronaldo have a duty to take a stand against Trump's fascist policies and ideas by refusing to do business with him.

"Please sign this petition to ask Ronaldo to move out of Trump Tower!"

Do you think Ronaldo should sell his apartment?
