Most sources estimate the Ronaldo’s net worth to be between £200m and £250m ($250m-$310m), but no one can really claim to have a bulletproof idea of what Ronaldo is worth except his management company.According to Forbes, Ronaldo was the third on the list of highest paid athletes in the world in 2018, with earnings of $108m (£82m). He was behind Lionel Messi and boxer Floyd Mayweather, who came first, but came ahead of mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor.The Portuguese ranked 10th in the top 100 celebrities in 2018 – a fall of five places from 2017 – behind Dwayne Johnson, reality TV star Kylie Jenner and musician Ed Sheeran.Messi placed eighth on that list and Mayweather first, with McGregor and Neymar following closely behind Ronaldo among athletes in the top 20.What is Cristiano Ronaldo’s salary? Ronaldo’s contract at Juventus is believed to be worh €30m ($34m/£26m) a year, meaning he is by some distance the best paid player in Serie A. His contract is set to run for four years until 2022, meaning he stands to earn €120m for his trouble in Turin.Prior to his switch to Juve, Ronaldo had signed a new contract with Real Madrid in November of 2016, which was reported to be around £365,000 a week before bonuses.The Portugal captain’s contract earnings mean that he is among the most lucratively rewarded footballers in the world, along with his arch-rival Lionel Messi, whose latest contract has been reported to be worth in excess of £500,000 a week, and Neymar, whose Paris Saint-Germain deal is said to be worth a staggering £537,000 weekly after tax.Before those contracts were signed the only footballers who earned more than Ronaldo were Carlos Tevez, who was on a reported £615,000 a week during his time at Shanghai Shenhua, and Oscar, who is paid £400,000 a week by Shanghai SIPG.

Ronaldo’s most significant sponsorship deal is with Nike, which was renewed around the same time he extended his last Madrid contract.The latest agreement is said to be the second ‘lifetime’ contract the sportswear giant has handed out after it offered similar terms to three-time NBA champion LeBron James. The Los Angeles Lakers icon’s deal has been speculated to be worth in excess of $1 billion in total, though exactly how that breaks down year-by-year is kept under wraps. Naturally, many have assumed that Ronaldo has signed on a comparable basis. Though the $1bn figure seems extraordinary, it is worth noting that sponsorship analysts Hookit estimated that Ronaldo’s social-media presence alone was worth an incredible $474m to Nike in 2016.Prior to the new agreement, most sources had Ronaldo’s annual earnings from Nike at a few million less than his old Madrid salary.Beyond Nike, Ronaldo has had endorsement deals with the likes of Armani, Tag Heuer, Egyptian Steel, EA Sports, PokerStars and Castrol.What businesses does Cristiano Ronaldo have? As well as representing a number of brands, Ronaldo has created his own around the CR7 image. It is mostly centred on his underwear line but has also evolved to include various other clothing, leisure and home products.In addition, Ronaldo has two hotels – named Pestana CR7 – in Portugal: one in the capital, Lisbon, and another in Funchal, his hometown on the island of Madeira. In late2016, he expanded into gyms in a partnership with US health company Crunch, with the first outlet under the ‘CR7 Fitness’ name opened in Madrid.In March 2019, Ronaldo launched a hair transplant clinic in Spain called Insparya. “This project is going to be a success, as we want to help the Spaniards and the Spanish economy,” Ronaldo said at the opening.Expect to see the 34-year-old expand further into these area as his playing days draw to a close, with Michael Jordan proving that the names of the greatest players retain their value even after retirement.What charity work does Cristiano Ronaldo do? It would be unfair to say Ronaldo does not strive to put some of his fortune towards the greater good – in fact, in 2015 he was recognised by Dosomething.org as the most charitable sports star in the world.The website acclaimed Ronaldo for using his fame to promote “a variety of causes including childhood hunger, obesity and biodiversity” and highlighted an $83,000 donation to a 10-year-old fan in need of brain surgery as well as a $165,000 contribution to a cancer centre in Portugal that treated his mother.After the 2016 Champions League final, it was reported that the ex-Manchester United man instructed his agent Jorge Mendes to donate his €600,000 win bonus to a non-governmental organisation.

According to Hookit, Ronaldo became the first athlete to reach a combined 200 million followers on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.His Facebook page, in particular, is by far the most popular of any athlete on the platform. Ronaldo has over 122 million likes at the time of writing – far more than Messi’s 90 million and even further ahead of the top non-footballer, Dwayne Johnson, also known as The Rock, who is back on 58 million.On Instagram, meanwhile, Ronaldo also leads the way among sports stars with 159 million followers. That places him second overall, behind only the official Instagram account, having gone ahead of Selena Gomez and Ariana Grande.

Editors’ Recommendations The Best Vodka Mixers for Stocking Your Home Bar The Best Rums for Mixing to Turn Any Night Into Island Night 9 Cocktails Recipes to Mix Up for National Rum Day 7 Fall Cocktail Recipes to Enjoy With Cooler Weather 9 Best Spirits For Spiked Apple Cider By now, you’ve probably heard of (or at least seen a bottle of) Sailor Jerry Rum. The spiced rum, named for one of the most, if not the most, influential tattoo artists in the United States, Norman Collins, has been a staple at bars across the world since its inception 19 years ago. It has been mixed into just about everything, surpassing the million-case mark for sales, and currently sits as the second-best-selling spiced rum in the world. Now, the brand is pushing for even more by adding to their product line with a new flavor, Savage Apple.Coming in at 35% alcohol by volume, the new spirit takes the sweet and spicy taste of traditional Sailor Jerry that we all immediately recognize and adds more cinnamon and fresh green apple notes to the mix, creating a bold yet fresh-tasting flavored rum.“Savage Apple is an amazing addition to the Sailor Jerry story. This is the first new product we’ve ever released, and it is a fantastic liquid; one we know our fans will enjoy for its quality and bold nature,” said Anthony Bohlinger, Sailor Jerry Brand Ambassador.The release is meant to reflect the ideology of Collins, who made a name for himself tattooing sailors during World War II, but with a more playful flair. (If you don’t know the story of Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins, check it out here.)Like the original Sailor Jerry rum, Savage Apple will feature Collins’ artwork, specifically a re-creation of his tiger flash design, this time holding an apple in its teeth.While it can be consumed on its own (and chilled), we suggest trying it in a cocktail like a mule – the snap of the ginger beer will liven up the apple flavors and make everything pop. Not feeling a mule? Why not try something a little different and do a rum and tonic? You might be surprised how much you like it. If you need some tonic suggestions, check out this list for the best of the best.Currently only available in Florida and New York, Sailor Jerry Savage Apple will roll out nationwide this fall. It retails for around $16.
