CRISTIANO RONALDO remains one of the world’s greatest players, and some would say the best ever.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner returned to Manchester United last summer and has scored 15 goals in all competitions so far.
United haven’t been in the best form and the Portugal international has since left Old Trafford but bringing Ronaldo back has at least guaranteed some commercial success this season, despite his high wages.
So just how much is the Portugal legend worth?
What is Cristiano Ronaldo’s net worth?
As of January 2020, Cristiano Ronaldo was worth £367m, having passed the $1billion mark in career earnings during his time with Juventus.
And he earned £88m in 2021, say Forbes.
The superstar has a $1bn (£773million) lifetime deal with sportswear giant Nike.
Ronaldo is the world’s most marketable player, earning comfortably more in endorsements than both Lionel Messi and Neymar.
And last year, Ronaldo was spotted wearing a £370,000 Rolex GMT watch on his wrist, showing fans just how much he can afford.
CR7 also owns an impressive and luxurious collection of super-cars worth £17m.
How much did Cristiano Ronaldo earn at Man Utd?
Cristiano Ronaldo earned an eye-watering £510,000-per-week.
The Portugal captain is now 37 years old but has repeatedly shown he can still perform at the very highest level.
That made him the world’s highest paid athlete, just above great rival Lionel Messi.
And he was also the fourth highest paid celebrity on the planet, with only Kylie Jenner, Kanye West and Roger Federer earning more.
What does Cristiano Ronaldo earn in endorsements?
Ronaldo has endorsements with popular brands such as Tag Heuer, Clean Haircare, Nike and Herbalife.
It’s estimated that 40 per cent of Ronaldo’s earnings come from endorsements, with £20m of that coming from Nike every year.
