Madonna moves to Portugal for son David's football career

A mum’s life is often taken over by her child’s football practice and it seems Madonna is no different!

The megastar has reportedly moved to Lisbon to kickstart her son David’s football career after he was head hunted by the prestigous Benfica soccer team youth academy.

The ‘Hung Up’ singer has been sharing snaps of her family in Portugal since March, after her 11-year-old adopted son – who she has with ex-husband Guy Ritchie – joined the training school and according to Portuguese weekly magazine Visão, “Madonna is no longer a tourist, she now lives in Lisbon.”

The publication revealed Madonna has been staying in a Lisbon hotel as the £7 million 19th century house she has bought in Sintra could take up to six months to renovate.

Another local newspaper, Correio da Manhã, revealed David had joined the Benfica training facility in Seixal, and he has enrolled in a French high school in Lisbon where he’ll start his secondary education in the Spring.

And the 59-year-old singer – who also has Lourdes, 20, Rocco, 16, Mercy, also 11, and four-year-old twins Stella and Esther – delighted fans when they saw her househunting.


A source previously said: “Madonna visited Portugal first in March and the fans went wild. One even sent her a message saying they were an estate agent on Instagram and she started following them back. It was then it became pretty apparent that she was looking to make a move permanent.

“Now the town in question is abuzz with the news that she’s going to be based in this particular property, with the estate agents confirming they’ve sold the property to a big name.

“It’s a stunning building in the hilltops with a huge number of bedrooms and bathrooms all decorated in striking Islamic style, although there are huge plans for a redesign inside already.”
