The Portuguese superstar is among the richest athletes in the world.
Following a move back to Old Trafford in the summer, Cristiano Ronaldo earns around £480,000 per week from Manchester United.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is widely considered among the best footballers of all time. In addition to his brilliant performances on the pitch, Ronaldo is enjoying great success in his marketing activities.
The Portuguese icon is the most popular athlete across social media platforms, earning huge income through advertising. He has now reached a new milestone in terms of his total earnings.
According to Marca, Ronaldo has surpassed $1billion in career earnings and has a net worth of $500million.
At the age of 36, Ronaldo is still a top performer in the Premier League. He has scored vital goals for the Red Devils this season, enjoying great form despite his side’s struggles. As a result, the Portugal captain’s market value has not decreased, guarantying his presence among the top-earning footballers for more years.
The former Real Madrid star has also continued to represent different brands in his social media campaigns. Advertising for Altice, Herbalife, DAZN, MTG, Clear Shampoo, Abbott and Unilever has increased Ronaldo’s annual income by $45million.
