Michael Schumacher moved to villa in Spain’s Mallorca purchased from Real Madrid chief Florentino Perez

MICHAEL Schumacher has reportedly been moved to a villa in Mallorca to continue his recovery.

The property was previously owned by Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and purchased for more than €28 million by Schumacher’s wife Corinna in 2017.

Situated in the exclusive area of Puerto de Andratx, the luxury villa lies in the gated Las Brisas estate.

The complex covers 15,000 sqm, boasting two swimming pools, a helipad, gym, expansive garden and western views over the Balearic Sea.

According to Diario de Mallorca, the seven-time world champion was taken to their Spanish holiday home to recover from injuries sustained from a catastrophic skiing accident in 2013.

Although updates surrounding his health have been rare, the ex-wife of Formula 1 boss and former QPR co-owner Flavio Briatore, Elisabetta Gregoraci, recently made comments on his condition.

Speaking on the Italian version of Big Brother, Gregoraci said: ‘They moved to Spain and his wife has set up a hospital in that house.”

She later added that ‘only three people can visit him and I know who they are’.

It comes after reports were made that the Formula 1 legend was spending his winters at the multi-million euro mansion with round-the-clock carers.

Residents at the estate confirmed to a respected German magazine that they saw the racing legend arrive by helicopter last year.

It is believed that Schumacher was also at the property for New Year’s celebrations and his 50th birthday on January 3.

Schumacher won 91 races in a record-breaking F1 career before suffering a traumatic brain injury.

He was reportedly receiving €50,000-a-week treatment from a team of 15 physicians and nurses at his Swiss home.
