The driver – believed not to be Ronaldo but one of his bodyguards – lost control and skidded into a wall at the residential estate of Sa Coma, Bunyola, Palma de Mallorca, where the Manchester United star is currently in vacation with his family.

The front of the Bugatti was reportedly destroyed, with investigators revealing that no other vehicle was involved.

In addition to the local police employed by the town hall of Bunyola, Civil Guard agents also visited the scene.

At 11 a.m., the car slammed into the door of a country house and a completely destroyed butane bottle stand near Joan March Hospital.

The driver of the car was not injured and reportedly signed an accident report.

A well-placed source said: “The car hit a wall but there was only property damage with no injuries and the driver accepted full responsibility for what happened.

“The information about who was driving and what happened is recorded in a police database and is there for a court or officers to access if further investigations need to be carried out.

‘But it’s more about information that needs to be recorded so that the owner of the damaged property can file a claim for compensation and use the police report as a backup in the event of a dispute over how the damage was done. »

Another insider added: “The accident happened on a side road near Joan March Hospital.

“The car appears to have left the road and hit a wall which is part of the protection of a house with a gas canister deposit behind it.

“An employee of Cristiano was apparently driving at the time and Cristiano was not. He was certainly not at the scene when the officers arrived.

Respected island newspaper Cronica Balear said the unnamed bodyguard got out of the car to continue his journey and left other staff employed by the star at the scene to receive police.

The identity of the person driving has not yet been revealed, but it is well known that iano Ronaldo and his family are protected in Cheshire by Portuguese twins who served as soldiers in an elite unit of the forces special in Afghanistan.

The strongmen were named Sergio and Jorge Ramalheiro, who later became part of a Portuguese close protection unit tasked with policing the likes of politicians and judges after serving.

Popular Portuguese magazine Flash said the twins, who were part of a group of triplets, were hired by Cristiano after he requested unpaid leave from the PSP police to pursue other interests.

The third brother, named Alexander, would still work as a policeman.

Spanish police confirmed on Monday afternoon that they had no information to suggest Cristiano was in the car at the time.

Ronaldo had the beloved Bugatti Veyron, which has a top speed of 253mph – and a Mercedes-Benz G-Class – a gift from his wife – shipped from Manchester for the holidays.

The Bugatti is part of CR7’s $20.8 million car collection, which also includes an Aston Martin, Bentley and Ferrari Monza.

At 11 a.m. the car crashed into the door of a country house and a stand.

Ronaldo also added a $10.4 million limited edition Bugatti Centodieci – of which only ten were made – to his collection last year.

The United striker is enjoying a luxury stay in Mallorca with his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez and their children.

They stay in a luxury villa, away from prying eyes, located at the foot of the Tramuntana mountains.

The family of seven, including children Cristiano Jr, 11, Eva, 5, Matteo, 5, Alana Martina, 4, and Bella, two months, arrived on a private jet last week.

They soaked up the sun and celebrated the 12th birthday of Ronaldo’s eldest, Cristiano Jr.

Ronnie Jr also joined his father aboard a superyacht on Sunday to celebrate Father’s Day.
