Sunday Mirror - - FRONT PAGE - BY PHIL CARDY BY KAREN ROCKETT

SOC­CER star Cris­tiano Ron­aldo has sold the man­sion where he lived while play­ing for Manch­ester United – but has taken a £645,000 hit.

Ron­aldo, 33, sold his five-bed­room pile in foot­ballers’ hotspot Alder­ley Edge, Cheshire, for £3,250,000.

But he paid £3,895,000 for the house in 2008 – a year be­fore he moved to Span­ish giants Real Madrid.

The su­per­star is now with Ital­ian side Ju­ven­tus but is fight­ing rape al­le­ga­tions in the US.

This week cops in Las Ve­gas is­sued a war­rant to ob­tain a sam­ple of his DNA. Ron­aldo agrees he had sex with for­mer model and teacher Kathryn May­orga, 34, in his pent­house at a ho­tel there in 2009 but strongly FASTER daddy, faster! Thrill-seek­ing four-year-old Eric Cow­ell has the time of his life on a jet ski in Bar­ba­dos with dot­ing dad Si­mon.

The dy­namic duo are on a win­ter hol at the X Fac­tor mogul’s home there with Eric’s mum Lauren Sil­ver­man and big brother Adam, 13.

Lauren, 41, went water ski­ing as bare-chested Si­mon, 59, lit a fag – de­spite vow­ing to jacket in last year.

Af­ter dat­ing for six years it’s good to know the sparks still fly! de­nies it was rape. If cops file charges he could be ex­tra­dited to the US for trial.

The Por­tuguese player has sold the house “sub­ject to con­tract” af­ter it went on the mar­ket a week be­fore Christ­mas, ac­cord­ing to a list­ing on prop­erty site Right­move.

The brick-built pad is spread over three floors with ma­jes­tic coun­try­side views. It has an in­door swim­ming pool, spa, sauna, gym, cin­ema room and me­dia suite.
