Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly buys $18.5M New York loft in Trump Tower

While it's not quite the long-vaunted Major League Soccer move that U.S. soccer fans anxiously await, it would appear that Cristiano Ronaldo is coming to the States.

According to the New York Post, Ronaldo has blown a significant wad of cash and bought himself an apartment in the lavish Trump Tower building in midtown Manhattan. The 2,509-square-foot loft has reportedly set Ronaldo back $18.5 million, and it formerly belonged to real estate mogul Alessandro Proto -- a partner of Donald Trump.

It remains to be seen whether Ronaldo's multimillion-dollar investment is an indicator of a planned future move to nearby New York Red Bulls or New York City FC. But at least the Big Apple behemoths now know where to find him.
