Cristiano Ronaldo may have moved from Manchester United to Al-Nassr in Saudi Arabia, leaving behind the bright lights of European football, but the Portuguese player is still among the most-paid athletes in both football and general sports.

In addition to earning handsomely from his playing contract, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has a plethora of endorsement agreements and business ventures in many areas.

However, what is the current net worth of Cristiano Ronaldo? It’s hard to say for sure, but one thing is certain: for some time to come, he will undoubtedly rank among the highest-paid athletes worldwide.
