Cristiano Ronaldo Becomes First Billionaire Footballer



Juventus Star Cristiano Ronaldo has become the third sportsman in the world after golf star Tiger Woods and boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr to earn $1bn during his career.

It was gathered that, though, there was a huge pay cut, but it won’t affect the Portuguese superstar too much.

All thanks to the brand that is CR7, he exclusively earned about €100m only in 2019, but in his career, he is expected to reach the $1bn club in 2019-20, even with the three-month pay cut at the Bianconeri.

Only Barcelona star Lionel Messi earned more than Ronaldo last season, but the fact that the 35-year-old has almost played 18 seasons of professional football helps him become the first-ever footballer to reach $1bn during his career.

It was also gathered that, Roger Federer will become the first billionaire in tennis this year.

Only golf and boxing champions have reached numbers that level of the active players, whilst basketball legend Michael Jordan is the third member currently in the club.

It should be noted that, Ronaldo joined Juventus in 2018 after nine years with Real Madrid.

He has won FIFA's Player of the Year five times and is the all-time leading goal scorer in the UEFA Champions League.
