Things haven’t been easy for Cristiano Ronaldo this year. After failing to help Manchester United qualify for the Champions League, the 37-year-old’s £1.7million Bugatti Veyron seems to have been damaged in a crash in Majorca, Spain. However, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is not said to be involved in the crash. 

Since the situation is still developing, reports have been a bit unclear. However, according to The Sun, Ronaldo’s bodyguard is said to be involved in the crash, as he lost control of the 1001hp-powered car and skidded into a wall. The incident took place in Sa Coma, Bunyola, Palma de Majorca, where Ronaldo is said to have been spending his off-season

Images from the crash have emerged showing the full extent of the damages, and it looks like an expensive ordeal. The front of the Buggati is said to be severely damaged. No other vehicles were impacted.

The unnamed driver of the car is said to have escaped unhurt and has been cooperating with the authorities. One source claims, “The car smashed into a wall but there was only material damage with no one injured and the driver accepted full responsibility for what happened.

“The information about who was behind the wheel and what occurred is registered on a police database and is there for a court or officers to access if any further investigations need to be conducted.”

“But it is more a case of the information needing to be registered so the owner of the property that was damaged can put in a compensation claim and use the police report as a back-up in case there is any dispute down the line about how the damage was done.”

Another source claimed that the accident ironically happened on a road near Joan March Hospital, saying “The car appears to have come off the road and has hit a wall which forms part of the protection to a house with a gas canister deposit behind it. An employee of Cristiano’s was apparently driving at the time and not Cristiano. He was definitely not at the scene when officers arrived.”

Fortunately though, the Manchester United star has an arsenal of other cars at his disposal and doesn’t have to rely on Wayne Rooney to pick him up in the morning. Some of his cars include a Mercedes-Benz G-Class (a present from his wife), an Aston Martin, a Ferrari Monza, a Bentley and a limited edition £8.5m Bugatti Centodieci (only 10 units have been made worldwide).
