Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has made a fortune for himself, not only on the pitch but also in the business world.
The 35-year-old remains the most successful player in the history of Champions League with a total of five titles - one more than his rival Lionel Messi.
Briefly.co.za learnt that he was also rated as one of the second most paid footballers in 2020 with a monthly earning worth about €4.5 million (R89 million), and this excludes sponsorship deals and endorsements according to KickOff.
The Barcelona legend is the only one with more pay and his take home on a monthly basis stands at €8.3 million (R164 million) before tax as reported by French publication L'Equipe.
Playing football, Ronaldo has not only diversified his wealth, but he has also acquired properties in choice cities and countries so he can have shelter when he visits.
Daily Star claims that the Portuguese sparked up reactions from his fans in 2015 when he invested a huge chunk of his wealth in an apartment in Trump Tower, Manhattan.
Many thought he would join a Major League Soccer outfit afterwards but the forward is still waxing mesmerising defenders in top European Leagues.
Meanwhile, the 2,509 square foot space apartment high up in the tower with panoramic views of Central Park probably makes it worth a few million alone.
The former Manchester United star also owns a holiday home valued around £1.3 million R25 million) in Marbella. It overlooks the sea and features a built-in theatre, LED driveways, and an infinity pool.
After joining Juventus in a deal worth £100 million (R1.9 billion) in 2018, Ronaldo bought a house on the hills of Turin but the price of the property hasn't filtered into the media two years after.
Reports claim that it would be around the same amount he paid for his Madrid home which has a gym, as well as an indoor swimming pool. There is also a sizeable garden.
During the lockdown, Ronaldo and his family isolated in his £7 million (139 million) worth mansion in Funchal mansion, Madeira.
The 35-year-old acquired the property in 2015, a property which was a warehouse at the time and he renovated it and is now as stylish and luxurious as his other properties.
It has a rooftop pool that allows a view of the Atlantic Ocean, a view that can also be seen from the living room, which boasts a double-height floor-to-ceiling window.
There is also (of course) a gym, an additional swimming pool, a jacuzzi and a football pitch. Not a bad place to self-isolate then.
