18. Zlatan Ibrahimović
When self-assured Swedish forward Zlatan Ibrahimović moved to Paris Saint-Germain in 2012, he needed a considerable home to match his considerable ego. Fortunately, one was found in Versailles – location of one of the world’s most famous palaces – with his $45,000-per-month mansion suitably situated within a historical landmark.

When Brazilian midfield maestro Kaká joined Orlando City in summer 2014, it was the perfect excuse to buy a vacation-style Florida mansion.

16. Steven Gerrard
Former Liverpool midfielder and captain Steven Gerrard settled for nothing less than a place in Beverly Hills after signing for LA Galaxy in summer 2015. And the six-bedroom, $27.5 million mansion that he rents there for around $53,000 per month doesn’t just come with a movie theater and a pool, but also with its own purpose-built waterfall. Now that’s impressive.
