CRISTIANO Ronaldo has offered to pay for the damage to the house hit by his £1.7million Bugatti Veyron.
A bodyguard is said to have driven to Mallorca where the 37-year-old Manchester United star is holidaying.
He is believed to have seen the impact while riding in a car with his family behind him.
The homeowner visited Ronaldo’s rented villa and was promised compensation by an employee.
On Tuesday, Cronica Balear claimed the unnamed bodyguard got out of the car to continue his journey, leaving other associates of the Manchester United striker at the scene to meet police.
It wasn’t immediately clear where the Portugal international might have gone.
But he was pictured enjoying days with his family on his £5.5million superyacht Azimut Grande, moored in Port Adriano in south-west Mallorca.
The father of five is believed to be renting a luxury villa near the scene of the accident on Monday morning, on a side street near Joan March Hospital in the township of Bunyola.
Ronaldo’s damaged Bugatti was later taken away on a tow truck with a blue tarpaulin.
Cronica Balear said security personnel went to attend to the car while they waited for police to arrive, “had done everything to ensure that nosy locals who recognized the Bugatti as Cristiano’s attempted to take photos.” close.”
The identity of the person behind the wheel has not yet been released, but it is known that Ronaldo and his family are protected in Cheshire by Portuguese twins who served as soldiers in an elite special forces unit in Afghanistan.
The strongmen were identified as Sergio and Jorge Ramalheiro, who later became part of a Portuguese close protection unit tasked with guarding politicians and judges after duty.
Spanish police confirmed on Monday afternoon that they had no information to suggest Cristiano was in the car at the time.
A well-placed source said: “The car crashed into a wall but there was only property damage, no one was hurt and the driver took full responsibility for what happened.
“The information about who was behind the wheel and what happened is registered in a police database and is available to courts or officials if further investigations are needed.
“But it’s more about the need for the information to be registered so that the owner of the damaged property can make a claim for damages and use the police report as a backup in case there’s a later dispute about how the damage was done.”
Another insider added: “The accident happened on a side road near Joan March Hospital.
“The car appears to have veered off the road and crashed into a wall which is part of the protection of a house with a gas canister depot behind it.
“Apparently one of Cristiano’s employees was driving and not the footballer himself.
“Cristiano was not at the scene when officers arrived, nor was the person who officers were told was driving the car at the time of the accident.”
