Cristiano Ronaldo Career
The Portuguese sports star has risen from a boy from the tiny island of Madeira, just off the coast of Portugal, to be one of the most recognized faces in the world. His initial fame came from playing soccer; as he moved to Manchester, England, he joined one of the biggest teams in the sport, Manchester United.
After six successful years of winning multiple championships, including the Champions League and Premier League, he moved to Spain, joining Real Madrid, where both collective and personal successes continued during a nine-year stay. Italy was his next destination, joining Juventus in 2018, but his time in Turin only lasted a few years before a reunion with Manchester United in 2021.
However, it seems like his return to England won’t be as fruitful as his first time with the Red Devils, as Ronaldo is believed to be preparing to leave Manchester United if they fail to make the Champions League this season. That’s not likely, with the Red Devils ranked likely to finish fifth in the latest Ladbrokes betting odds, behind their cross-city rivals Manchester City and Liverpool. However, while things on the field may not be going the way of Ronaldo, his fortunes off the pitch continue to go from strength to strength.
Cristiano Ronaldo Net Worth
Thanks to his early successes on the field, Ronaldo has long had major brands looking to use him to endorse their products. Armani, Herbalife, and Tag Heuer are all companies that pay the Portuguese star, with many of the deals rumored to be into tens of millions of dollars. His lifetime deal with sportswear giants, Nike, is worth $15 million a year, which constantly puts him in the spotlight through their advertising.
By building his brand, Ronaldo now earns around $40 million annually on Instagram alone, making him top of the Instagram rich list and crowning him as the undoubted king of the influencers.
Ronaldo also earns a string of hotels and various other business ventures, including hair transplant firms operating throughout Europe. With rumored earnings of around $120 million per year, estimates are that his net worth is about $500 million after becoming the first athlete to surpass over $1 billion in career earnings to date.
Cristiano Ronaldo Image Icon
Ronaldo is an icon when it comes to personal health, as at the age of 37, he’s in phenomenal shape, something which has kept him on the front and back pages of the newspapers for two decades. His physique couldn’t be more different from that of the child seen first running around the streets of Funchal as a child.
His training regime sees him working out around four hours daily, five days a week. However, he’s a huge advocate of mental health, too, stating it’s just as important to ‘train your mind and your body’. Ronaldo often shares images and videos of his workouts and the importance of eating right on his social media channels and, as a result, serves as an inspiration to millions.
Cristiano Ronaldo relationships
Ronaldo has been in a relationship with the Spanish model Georgina Rodriguez for around five years. The 28-year-old former Gucci sales assistant fell in love with the soccer star when first meeting him at her place of work in late 2016. A few days later at a Dolce and Gabbana event their paths crossed again, and they have been together ever since. The couple now has one child of their own, and Rodriguez is currently pregnant with twins, which when they are born it will mean there are six children in the Ronaldo household, as he also has three children from previous relationships.
