With Mario Balotelli back in England after his transfer from AC Milan to Liverpool, the Italian soccer star was in the market for a new place to live. With his rich new deal at Liverpool, he could certainly afford to get something luxurious, and boy did he.

Balotelli reportedly dropped $7.8 million on this amazing mansion – dubbed “Steppingstone” – built into the Chester, England countryside. What does he get for that pricetag? Well, let’s see…a helipad, wine cellar, indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi, an mini indoor parquet soccer field, an outdoor grass soccer pitch, a game room, a bedroom with a thonged lady on the wall and – last but not least – a piano that plays Springsteen by itself!
