BARCELONA (Web Desk) – Star soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo’s £15 million private jet has crashed while trying to land at Barcelona airport.

The Real Madrid and Portugal player was not on board when the crash happened at El Prat airport on Monday evening. Ronaldo was in Germany ahead of Real Madrid’s Champions League match with Borussia Dortmund.

Preliminary analysis of crash suggested that the plane’s landing gear broke on impact, and a runway at the airport was closed.

Fortunately, the pilot faced a few injuries and no one was seriously hurt.

A source close to Ronaldo told “The Mirror” that the plane was normally rented by companies and it was in use by one of them. The 31-year-old player purchased the aircraft last year.
