Michael Schumacher is moving into a $52 million mega-mansion bought by his wife, a Spanish mayor claims.

Katia Rouarch hinted that Formula One star Schumacher would arrive in the near future in an interview with Swiss magazine L'Illustre.

The magazine quoted Rouarch, who became mayoress of Andratx in June last year, as saying: "I can officially confirm Michael Schumacher is going to move in to our municipality and that everything is being prepared to welcome him."

L'Illustre said she confirmed the news to one of their correspondents, yet no-one on the island is able to say when the 50-year-old is due to arrive on the island, or how long he will be staying, the Daily Mail reported.

Last month, Corinna is said to have bought Real Madrid president Florentino Perez's Majorcan mansion for nearly $52 million.

Corinna is said to have bought the exclusive property on the upmarket estate of Las Brisas near Andratx in the southwest of the island so she could spend holidays there with her children and friends, German tabloid Bild reported.

Perez bought the home in 2005 but put it up for sale last year following the death of his wife Mari Angeles Sandoval.

Schumacher, who is the only driver in Formula One history to win seven world titles, was placed in a medically-induced coma following a skiing accident in December 2013 in the French Alps.

He was looked after in hospital but eventually transferred to his family home in Lake Geneva in 2014, where he has been receiving medical rehabilitation.

It has been estimated his care at the hands of a 15-strong medical team costs $222,000 a week.

The death of Perez's wife from cancer in 2012 is said to be one of the reasons the Real Madrid president might have decided to put the property up for sale when it emerged last year it was on the market.

The 71-year-old and his wife used to be regular visitors to the house - called Villa Yasmin - but he was rarely seen jetting to the island in the summer after she died.

The gated estate it is built on is home to just a dozen houses and offers spectacular views of the Mediterranean from the Puig de Marmacen mountain.
