Footballers are infamous for buying huge houses that contain swimming pools, gyms and even cinemas, thanks to the vast fortunes players at the top level are paid.
Diego Simeone has become the latest to add his name to that list, with new footage showcasing the inside of the Atletico Madrid manager's house. The Argentine was featured in a documentary filmed over the course of last season.
And some of that filming took place inside his stunning property in the Spanish capital, which features a pool, its own football pitch and huge glass windows. Here, Daily Star Sport looks at Simeone's mansion and five other incredible houses owned by footballers.
Featured in the Prime Video documentary, Simeone's idyllic family home is situated in Madrid. The mansion has a swimming pool complete with sun loungers, with huge glass windows overlooking the lawns and gardens.
Simeone's home also contains a mini 4G football pitch, while his kitchen is typically modern and classy. Perhaps the most unusual feature is the walk-in wardrobe, which contains 30 long-sleeve black shirts, 20 white shirts and rack of black suits.
While playing for Manchester United, superstar striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic rented a spectacular mansion in Cheshire. The property was named Green Meadows and recently went on the market for a staggering £4.8million.
The mansion contained six bedrooms and six en-suites across four floors and stood on an acre of land. The luxury property came with a gym, wine cellar and a leisure suite, with the garden containing a stunning terrace complete with its own bar.
The Brazilian legend owns a vast stunning property in his native country, named Portobello. Located 60 miles from Rio de Janeiro, Neymar bought it for £7m, with the mansion built on a plot spanning more than two acres.
It contains five bedrooms, a tennis court, jacuzzi, a wine cellar and a state of the art gym. But the jewel in its crown is the helipad that is built into the side of the property, which is situated next to a jetty that allows boats to pull alongside.
He may have moved to Paris Saint-Germain last summer, but Lionel Messi's £5.5million-valued property in Barcelona is one he would find hard to give up. Located in the exclusive suburb of Castelldefels, it boasts sea views and even a no-fly zone.
Despite its exclusivity, it is situated just 12 miles from his former home ground, the Nou Camp. It features a small football pitch, a swimming poor, an indoor gym and even a playground for his children.
Towards the end of Mario Balotelli's time at Manchester City, the fiery Italian rented a property in Alderley Edge for £13,495 a month. The stunning mansion was set in an elevated position, leading to fantastic panoramic views.
The house contained a lounge-come-media suite, a sitting room, living kitchen and four bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. To complete the stunning property, it also had a leisure suite with a pool and a gym.
England captain Harry Kane moved into a £17m-valued property in London back in 2018 with his family. The mansion comes with seven bedrooms, a gym lined with his jerseys from across his career and a cinema.
Kane famously spends a lot of his downtime on the golf course and as a result, his mansion comes with its own golf simulator. There is also a private garden and an outdoor pool, as well as a giant security fence to keep out prying eyes.
