Cristiano Ronaldo is the most famous athlete on the planet, and he is now a member of Italian powerhouse Juventus after nine seasons with Real Madrid.
With a Juve salary in the tens of millions and some of the biggest endorsement deals in football, he was the third highest-paid athlete in the world in 2018, behind only Floyd Mayweather and fellow superstar Lionel Messi. As a result, he also has a ludicrous amount of cash to burn.

Ronaldo earned $108 million (£81.5 million) in the last 12 months, according to Forbes, making him one of the highest-paid sports stars in the world.
Almost half of that income ($47 million, £35.5 million) was from endorsement deals with companies like Tag Heuer, Herbalife, and Nike.
