Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most marketable sportsmen in the world, and if you want him to work with you, it will definitely cost you a fortune.
A report by Forbes last month revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo is the highest-earning football player in the world right now, but not all of his wealth comes from the field of football.
Ronaldo reportedly took home a whopping €95 million ($105m) in the past 12 months, coming second to Tennis ace Roger Federer on the list of highest-earning athletes.
From Juventus, Ronaldo earns €53 million-a-year ($60m), but he also got €40 million ($45m) from endorsements in the last 12 months.
Saudi telecom firm Mobily in 2013 struck a deal with Ronaldo’s Irish image rights company, Multisports & Image Management.
The telecom firm needed a photo-shoot, five signed shirts, and two plugs across his social media channels.
For the four-and-a-half hours he gave the firm, Ronaldo charged them €1.03 million ($1.14 million).
In a ‘Football Leaks’ section presented by Der Spiegel, it was revealed that Ronaldo signed an agreement with Nike in 2016 to collect €16.2 million each year for the next ten years as long as he plays for a ‘Category A club’.
Additionally, he would receive a bonus of €4 million for any individual award he wins.
Apart from Nike, the list of Cristiano Ronaldo endorsements include Electronic Arts, Altice, DAZN, Herbalife, and MTG.
The 35-year-old is followed by Lionel Messi on the list, with the Barcelona forward taking home €93 million ($103 million) last year.
