Cristiano Ronaldo is widely known as one of the best footballers of all time. Born on February 5, 1985, in Madeira, Portugal, the 37-year-old Portuguese player is a striker for his national team and recently took part in what is likely to be his last FIFA World Cup.
David McCullough, the Pulitzer-winning historian, dies aged 89 Despite the recent controversy surrounding his sacking from Manchester United, Ronaldo has a very healthy net worth and is well on his way to becoming a billionaire.
Here are things you need to know about Ronaldo’s net worth and his billionaire status.
According to Forbes, Cristiano Ronaldo will earn $115 million in 2022. This makes him the third highest-paid athlete in the world after Lionel Messi and LeBron James. On the field, from his Portugal and Manchester United salaries, Ronaldo earned $60 million in 2022.
Another $55 million came from off-field earnings, including his work with Nike, Tag Heuer, Sacoor Brothers suits, and Monster headphones.
Ronald could earn up to 50 million dollars on Instagram in one year.
Research by Buzz Bingo suggests that Ronaldo’s off-field earnings could be much higher than Forbes’ estimate. In 2021, Ronaldo became the first person in the world to reach 500 million followers on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. That number is now over 700 million.
Research shows that in one year from 2019 to 2020, Ronaldo posted 43 sponsored posts on his account. The footballer is believed to earn over $1 million from his social media posts, making him $50 million from social media posts alone during this period.
Ronald has earned over $1 billion, but that doesn’t make him a billionaire
Forbes reports that in 2020, Ronaldo became the first active athlete in a team sport to surpass $1 billion in career earnings. However, after paying taxes and living expenses, that doesn’t make him a billionaire. According to Distractify, Ronaldo’s net worth is $500 million.
