And you can bet there’s no better home in the world to watch his team, when he’s at his gorgeous home in France.

His Chateau Louis XIV was modeled on 17th-century French castles, but was built between 2008-11 in Louveciennes, near Versailles.

Prior to 36 year old prince bought the palace, Kim Kardashian used it as the venue for her wedding to Kanye West.

Let’s admire the luxury residence of Bin Salman with SunSport – home to an incredible aquarium.

KEEP IT UP

When Bin Salman bought the castle Louis XIV – he didn’t want anyone to know about it.

He carefully concealed his ownership using shell companies in France and Luxembourg.

But upon further investigation, it turned out that those companies were under the umbrella of Eight Investments – a Saudi Arabian company managed by the head of the prince’s personal fund.

Emad Khashoggi, the grandson of billionaire arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi, has developed the property – bulldozing the original 19th-century castle and rebuilding it with 21st-century amenities.

In fact, it’s high-tech – the fountain, sound system, lights and air-conditioning are all controlled by an iPhone.

TECHNICAL PARAMETERS

The most astonishing feature of the Chateau Louis XIV is the meditation room, or chill room inside the castle’s moat.

It has a transparent underwater chamber, something you might see in a James Bond movie, with sturgeon and koi fish swimming around.

Other lavish features include a statue of Louis XIV made of expensive Carrara marble overlooking the 57-acre property.

In terms of amenities, there are 10 bedroom suites, a huge sitting room with 52ft painted vaulted ceilings, a library, as well as a wine cellar that can hold up to 3,000 bottles – enough to toast to success with Newcastle.

It also has indoor and outdoor pools, a private cinema, a squash court, two ballrooms and a nightclub.

In 2015, King Salman threatened to use his American Express Centurion card over the limit.

He spent £452m on a 440ft superyacht – bought from a Russian tycoon after seeing it while on holiday in France.

Feeling that it looked a bit bare and in need of a bit of decoration, he later acquired Leonardo Da Vinci’s £350 million masterpiece Salvator Mundi and is said to have installed the painting on a large boat.

However, it is the Chateau Louis XIV that requires the most noise.

Town officials who have worked with designer Khashoggi reveal it has become an obsession – just like the construction of the Palace of Versailles.

“Khashoggi said it was his dream in life to do such a thing,” former Louveciennes deputy mayor Marianne Merlino told. New York Times.

“Just like at Versailles, it’s also a way to get over the top, and like Louis XIV, he’s achieved something that’s actually quite unbelievable.”

And judging by these photos, you can’t argue.
