Cristiano Ronaldo has shown the lengths he will go to for close friends after he ‘took a £1.25million hit’ selling his Portuguese mansion to team-mate Pepe.
The Juventus superstar has a wealth of properties to his name but, according to the Sun, has decided to sell his hill-side retreat in his homeland to his international team-mate.
Hidden away by vast woodland and situated in Geres, the mansion – which includes a landing pad for a helicopter – was purchased for close to £3.5m seven years ago by the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.

The Geres property boasts an area of around 800 square meters and includes a stunning view of the picturesque Cavado river.
According to Correio da Manha, the deal between Ronaldo and Pepe was said to have been agreed while the national team were closing in on lifting the inaugural UEFA Nations League title.
Pepe, who played alongside Ronaldo at Real Madrid, is now back in his home country having joined FC Porto after leaving Turkish side Besiktas.
Ronaldo helped design the property and is reported to have taken a £1.25m hit on the sale
