One fan waited outside the Man United stadium for hours to get a photo with his hero as he arrived for training. But sadly, all he got was a quick wave from the footballer as he sped towards the ground in his Lamborghini.
Ronaldo has been ranked as the world’s third highest-paid athletes by Forbes in 2021, with an eye-watering net worth of $120 million (£86.8 million).
As well as a seven-figure salary and a lifetime deal with Nike, Ronaldo cashes in on other lucrative brand sponsorships with the likes of DAZN, Herbalife, MTG and Unilever.
And if any of that fizzles out, he’s got his highly successful CR7 range of clothing, accessories, hotels and gyms to fall back on.
Ronaldo may have taken a pay-cut to transfer from Juventus to Manc, but he’s still one of football’s highest-earners.
Ronaldo is said to be earning around £450,000 per week at Manchester United on his current contract.
That’s around £19.7 million a year, which, yes, is a cut from the £26 million he was earning at Juventus, but he’s still doing alright for himself.
