Ronaldinho puts luxury home on the market for the World Cup…at €11,000 a night
Money may not be an issue for Brazilian star Ronaldinho, but the creative midfielder spotted a clever business opportunity for the upcoming World Cup.
The former AC Milan man was left out of Brazil’s panel of players hoping to win the tournament on home soil, but he put the personal disappointment to one side and still hoping to make a nice windfall out of the World Cup by making his luxury home in Rio available to rent during the tournament.
Advertising the listing via his official Facebook page, Ronaldinho announced that his five-bedroom mansion in Barra da Tijuca, referred to as ‘#CasaR10’, will be available to rent for the princely sum of R$34,148 per night – more than €11,000 for the duation of the competition.
The property website AirBnb describes Ronaldinho’s home as a high standard house capable of sleeping eight, with guests having access to all of the owner’s amenities: sauna, spa pool, barbecue, home theatre, gourmet kitchen with balcony, cellar, special refrigerator for beer, fireplace, office, zen massage or yoga room, garage for three cars, and a “unique stage” for performing samba music on.
“Hi guys,” he wrote on the Facebook page.
“Taking advantage of the movement of these next few months I’m putting my house in Rio for rent.”
“It is a beautiful house where I had many good experiences with my friends and family. Take a given, there is Airbnb. Hugs. #Casar10”
The footballer will be watching the football action from his home in Belo Horizonte.
