Madonna 'is LEAVING her £6M Lisbon palace' after revealing she was 'bored and lonely'... after moving to Portugal to support son David's football dreams
Madonna is reportedly on the verge of quitting her life in Lisbon, after publicly revealing she feels 'bored and lonely' in the Portuguese city.
The 61-year-old pop superstar moved her family to southern Europe back in 2017, so her son David, 13, could fulfil his dream of playing football for Benfica's youth team.
However, The Sun reports that the American singer's time in the country may soon be coming to an end, as the owners of the £6million 18th century palace she calls home are now allegedly planning to sell it.

A source said of the star, who is enjoying a resurgence in popularity after the release of her album Madame X: 'Madonna will be on her Madame X tour until March 2020 so hasn’t been spending much time at the palace she was renting in Portugal.
'David still has some school commitments there but as Madonna is on the road she isn’t there now and it’s not clear whether she plans on getting a new home in the area.'
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Madonna for comment.
Bored and alone: At the opening night of her Madame X tour last week, the star admitted she was 'alone and bored' for some of her time in Portgual
At the opening night of her Madame X tour at New York City's Brooklyn Academy of Music last week, the star spoke onstage about her private life and move to Portugal.
She said: 'I moved to Lisbon to be a soccer mom. I wanted to be a soccer mom. I thought it would be adventurous. But I found myself alone, without friends, a little bit bored.'
Explaining how that boredom led to her seeking out new interests, she continued: ''I was invited to a fado club. The music is made up of melancholy, sadness and longing — the best description of me.'
Team: Through the move, David was able to fulfil his dream of playing for Benfica's youth team

Madonna moved to Portugal in August of 2017, and was living in a luxury suite at the Pestana Palace in Lisbon, before moving into her grand 12-bedroom abode.
At the time of her move, it was reported that Madonna was renting the home with the option to buy a year later if she wanted to.
It was also reported that the Like A Virgin singer was dividing her time between Portugal, the US and UK as her son David, who she adopted from Malawi in 2006, pursued his football ambitions.
Madonna is also mother to daughter Lourdes, 22, who is believed to live in America and son Rocco, 19, who resides in London with his father Guy Richie and stepmother Jacqui Ainsley.

The American star joined a string of A-list celebrities, including Michael Fassbender, Monica Bellucci and John Malkovich, who have had homes in the city.
Local media reported at the time of Madonna's move to Portugal: 'Madonna is no longer a tourist, she now lives in Lisbon', hot on the heels of the news that she was 'uprooting' her family from their New York home to start a new life.
