Michael Schumacher To 'Move To £27m Mansion' Once Owned By Real Madrid President

Seven-time Formula 1 champion Michael Schumacher is to move to a £27m luxury house in Spain that was formerly owned by the President of Real Madrid, Florentino Perez.

Schumacher suffered life-changing injuries after an horrific skiing accident back in 2013 but will now move into the 30 million euro mansion on the Spanish island of Majorca.

The house has 3,000 square metres of floor space, two swimming pools, and a large garden. It is even rumoured to have a helipad.

Since his accident, Schumacher has been living in the town of Gland in Switzerland with his family.

The mayor of the village that he will be becoming resident in, Katia Rouarch, told Swiss magazine L'Illustre: "I can confirm officially that Michael Schumacher will come to settle in our town and that everything is being prepared here to receive it."

According to the same magazine: "The place, surrounded by solid walls, has many advantages: it is located on a promontory, a part of which becomes a small precipice, which makes the property inaccessible to prying eyes."

Since his accident left him fighting for his life, Schumacher's family and team have closely guarded the former racing driver from any kind of public scrutiny.

The 49-year-old suffered a serious brain injury when he crashed whilst skiing in Switzerland. He was transferred to a hospital in Grenoble and was in a medically induced coma for a long time. He then eventually left there for Lausanne and was returned to home to continue his treatment back in September 2014.

Since then, his privacy has been respected largely and is condition remains relatively unknown.

Earlier this year his manager Sabine Kehm released a statement that said: "What can be said is that the family really appreciates the empathy of the fans.

In 2016, Kehm also said: "Michael's health is not a public issue, and so we will continue to make no comment in that regard."

One thing is for certain - his prospective new home is a stunning place to continue his rehabilitation and give the family all the space they need.

Here's hoping that it's all going well - and that a true sporting legend continues to make progress on his road to recovery.
