Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly promised to pay compensation to the property owner where his Bugatti Veyron crashed into on Monday.

Manchester United forward Ronaldo's £1.7 million ($2.1 million) Bugatti Veyron was involved in a crash in Majorca on Monday, wherein a dog was left "shaking with fear." Though Ronaldo was reportedly not in the driver's seat, one of his bodyguards was, still the 37-year-old footballer offered to pay for the damages.

The unnamed homeowner revealed he was promised compensation after going to the five-time Ballon d'Or winner's rented mansion on Tuesday to try to talk to him. He also shared how he feared his pet dog had been killed in the accident, claiming it had been left "shaking with fear" due to the smash.

"I had to wait for a while for the door to be opened but I was met by a very polite man and woman. On behalf of Ronaldo they promised to pay all the damage the Bugatti had caused. They told me to get everything fixed and keep the invoices," the homeowner told the island newspaper, Ultima Hora.

"My water meter was ripped out in the accident and since then I haven't been able to live normally in my own house. The door flew off its hinges and two concrete columns were knocked down." He added, "I was working when the police told me about the accident and the first thing I thought was that my dog had been killed because it is always behind the door. When I entered the property I saw him shaking with fear a fair distance from the entrance."

Ronaldo was known to be spending the holiday with his family on the Balearic Island when the accident occurred. When his employee came off the road, Ronaldo was reportedly in another vehicle in a small convoy with his family, traveling to his £5.5 million ($6.7 million) Azimut Grande superyacht in Porto Adriano. It reportedly happened on a minor road near Joan March Hospital in the municipality of Bunyola, close to the lavish rural property Ronaldo has rented for a family vacation.

The Bugatti Veyron was one of two cars the dad-of-five had brought to Majorca for his break. The damaged luxury supercar was taken away on a tow truck under a blue tarpaulin.
