Ronaldo lived there when he was a 16-year-old at Sporting Lisbon
Ronaldo, 38, has won it all at club level after a glittering career spanning over 20 years.
He now plies his trade in Saudi Arabia with Al-Nassr, earning £173m each year in the process.
Ronaldo was a smash hit during his first spell at Manchester United.
And he truly became a global superstar thanks to his Champions League success with Real Madrid.
But like every other footballer, Ronaldo had to work his way through the ranks as a youngster.
He started his pro career with Sporting Lisbon as a 16 year old after being promoted from the youth side.
And Ronaldo was quickly moved into the Duque de Loule 79 building in Lisbon along with other Sporting prodigies.
He shared a room with Miguel Paixao in 2001 but did not enjoy his time there, saying: “It could be better, but to fix it, until we go to Alcochete, that’s okay.”

And Ronaldo is unlikely to shed any tears after the building was renovated into 34 luxury apartments following a £12m investment from a Cypriot company.
It’s taken five years for the changes to be completed.
And it’s hoped young professionals, as well as young families, are drawn to the complex – as well as fans of Ronaldo.
General manager of Immobilo Investments Georges Matar said: “We have confidence and believe in the real estate market in Portugal, and we think there is a need to increase the supply of well-located houses for rent.”
