A recent Forbes report shows that Cristiano Ronaldo is the world’s highest-earning footballer, courtesy of his staggering £164 million annual contract with Al-Nassr and £49 million from sponsorships.
This places him leagues ahead of rivals like Messi and Neymar.
Notably, Ronaldo’s sponsorships alone surpass the combined earnings of Premier League stars Haaland, Salah, De Bruyne, and Kane.
Adding to his triumphs, Ronaldo extended his international goal record to 125 during Portugal’s 3-2 victory over Slovakia in Euro 2024 qualifying.
Ronaldo’s dominance, both in the game and the financial arena, solidifies his status as an unparalleled icon in the world of football.
