Former Brazilian soccer player Rogério Ceni sold his Mansions at Acqualina unit in Sunny Isles Beach.

Ceni, who won 20 major titles over his 25-year career and is considered one of the best Brazilian goalkeepers in history, is now manager of Fortaleza, a soccer club based in Ceara, Brazil.

Property records show Ceni controls RBCH Holdings LLC, which sold unit 2901 at 17749 Collins Avenue for $6.13 million. Ceni’s company paid about $6 million for the unit when the Trump Group completed the 47-story, 76-unit tower in 2015. That means he made about $130,000 on the unit.

Roberta Ingletto of Concierge Realty Brokers represented Ceni, who she declined to name. Cervera Real Estate’s Karine Carvalho brought the buyer, a Portuguese investor. Carvalho could not immediately be reached for comment.

The four-bedroom, 4,849-square-foot unit sold for $1,264 per square foot. It hit the market in July for just under $7 million, and was last listed for $6.7 million, according to Redfin.

In March, a New York hedge fund executive paid $17 million, or more than $2,100 a foot, for a full-floor penthouse at Mansions. The developer, led by Jules and Eddie Trump, is building the Estates at Acqualina, north of Mansions at Acqualina and Acqualina Resort & Spa.
