Cristiano Ronaldo has been one of the biggest athletes in the world for a while now. He has made a name for himself in the soccer world as one of the most successful players as well. From Manchester United to Al-Nassr, Ronaldo has been a superstar from day one. Among numerous other accolades, CR7 has also won the Ballon d’Or 5 times, as well as the UEFA Champions League.
The Portuguese striker has managed to build an empire for himself, thanks to his illustrious soccer career. It is not a huge surprise that he is one of the richest athletes in the world. Ronaldo owns a brand of his own that goes by the name of ‘CR7.’ Ronaldo owns multiple hotels and properties, meaning he has amassed a vast amount of wealth over the last two decades.
The Al-Nassr striker also boasts a huge car collection that is reported to be worth more than $20 million. Bugatti, Rolls Royce, G-Wagon, and Ferrari, are only a few from his garage.
How much does Cristiano Ronaldo spend in a day?
Ronaldo doesn’t shy away from an opportunity to express his wealth. The soccer world is aware of the fact that the soccer legend makes sure to take care of his body. He follows a strict diet and workout regime, which has helped him to continue playing at a high level even at 38 years old. It is not known how much Ronaldo spends per day exactly, but it could be in the thousands.
He has one of the most expensive diets in the world. El Futbulero US claimed that CR7 has spent a whopping $1,000 just for lunch in the past. His day reportedly consists of six meals, one every three to four hours. Portuguese outlet Correio de Manha also reported that Ronaldo was looking to hire a chef and was willing to pay them up to around $5,600 per month.
This certainly means that the amount he spends on just food is huge. Apart from this, his daily expenses haven’t been revealed but we can be sure that Ronaldo spares no penny.
How does Ronaldo make most of his money?
Ronaldo’s move to Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr sent the world into a frenzy. It was not expected of the former Manchester United star to leave Europe, although he emphasized his wish to play at the top on multiple occasions. Many believed that Ronaldo prioritized money when it came to the transfer. According to multiple sources, his Al-Nassr contract is worth more than $200 million per year, including commercial bonuses.
This is how Ronaldo makes most of his money right now. As Forbes claims, the striker has also accumulated a whopping $55 million in endorsements as of May 2022. The information for 2023 has not been disclosed yet but we can be sure that he has made more compared to previous years, mainly because of the transfer to Al-Nassr.
Ronaldo also boasts a lifetime deal with Nike. Only Lionel Messi and LeBron James can say the same thing about their endorsement deals with Adidas and Nike. It speaks at length about the impact these icons have on the sports world. Moreover, their lifetime deal indicates how much they have given to their respective sport as well.
Is Ronaldo the richest soccer player?
Ronaldo has a net worth of $500 million, according to Forbes. He was the richest soccer player until his former El Clasico rival Lionel Messi took that top spot from him. The PSG star has a net worth of $600 million. Ronaldo pales in comparison to Messi when it comes to net worth but this might change soon, considering the new ventures that the former has taken up in recent times.
It is not a huge surprise that Ronaldo and Messi top this list as well. They have managed to take over the sports world in all sorts of ways in the last 20 years and wealth is unsurprisingly one too. Although Ronaldo is not the richest soccer player in the world, he has managed to build a huge platform for himself off the soccer pitch.
