What are Cristiano Ronaldo’s net worth and career earnings


Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably one of the biggest stars in the world, and his success over the years has seen him become one of the top earners in football.

Since his debut for Sporting Lisbon in 2002, Ronaldo has gone on to enjoy a glamourous career both on and off the pitch.

The forward currently plies his trade with Saudi Arabia side Al Nassr as he looks to earn one final major payday before calling it a career.

Ronaldo has won five Ballon d’Or titles, five Champions League titles as well as many other individual and club honours.

But what is his net worth? And how much has earned throughout his career? Sportsmail provides all the answers below.

What is his net worth?

As of May 2022, Forbes have listed Ronaldo’s net worth as 92.9million ($115m).

Last year, the Portuguese international was ranked third on Forbes’ 2022 list of the highest-paid athletes in the world. This was four million less than the previous year.

Forbes reported that the forward earned £48.5m ($60m) on the field and £44.5m ($50m) off the pitch.

The two athletes above him on the list were Lionel Messi and NBA star LeBron James.

Ronaldo was ahead of the likes of Neymar, Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and Roger Federer.

Off the pitch, the forward continues to be an iconic figure. Ronaldo is the most followed person on Instagram with over 569m.

Ronaldo is currently in the process of having his ‘forever home’ built – which is set to cost £17m on the Portuguese Riviera.

The house will sit on a large plot of land in Quinta da Marinha, Cascais, on the west coast of Portugal.

Ronaldo also owns a seven-storey apartment block in Funchal, Madeira, where his mother Dolores, 66, and brother Hugo live after he bought it two years ago.

He still owns a villa in Turin from his time playing for Juventus. The two adjoining villas that make up the mansion include a state-of-the-art gym, as well as a swimming pool and ample bedrooms and bathrooms.

The forward also owns a £4.8m mansion on an estate called La Finca close to Madrid as well as a stunning Marbella holiday home, which he picked up in 2019.

What are his career earnings?

Over the years, Ronaldo was no stranger to a big payday. Real Madrid bought the forward for a then-world-record fee of £80m.

Towards the end of his spell with the Spanish giants, the forward earned £21m per season which breaks down to £365,000 a week.

After agreeing £88m move to Juventus from Madrid the star signed a deal with the Italian side for £26.5m per season – which is £500,000 a week.

After spending three years with the Italian side, the forward returned to Manchester United in the summer of 2021.

Ronaldo put pen to paper on a two-year deal and had reportedly signed a £480,000 a week contract – taking a slight pay cut from when he was at Juventus.

However, the star man saw a reduction in his weekly wage after United failed to qualify for the Champions League that season. Following their failure to reach the European competition, players saw their salaries drop by 25 per cent.

In November last year, United confirmed that the 37-year-old left Old Trafford by mutual consent following his controversial interview with Piers Morgan.

Ronaldo unleashed an astonishing attack on United and several high-profile figures, including head coach Erik ten Hag during the interview.

A month later, he officially joined Saudi side Al-Nassr. It is reported that the forward will earn a whopping £175m a year.

Sponsorship deals and business

Off the pitch, Ronaldo is arguably one of the most marketable individuals in the world.

Ronaldo has a lifetime contract with Nike and as well as several more agreements that will keep him set for life.

The likes of Armani, Clear, Castrol, Tag Heuer, Egyptian Steel, Herbalife, Italia Independent and PokerStars have all previously been endorsed by the Portuguese forward.

More recent sponsorships include LiveScore, MEO, ZujuGP, Uniecampus, and Therabody.

In October last year Ronaldo was named the most marketable athlete on the planet, ahead rival Lionel Messi, Serena Williams, Lewis Hamilton and LeBron James.

In the business side, Ronaldo has his own underwear line. He also has a major stake in the hotel industry in partnership with Pestana Hotels, now known as Pestana CR7.

He has hotels in Lisbon, another Funchal, as well as sites in Madrid, Marrakech and New York.

EXCLUSIVE: Inside Cristiano Ronaldo’s first Saudi home! £175m-a-year star is staying in a lavish suite at Riyadh’s Four Seasons hotel and will rack up a £250,000 bill in a MONTH… with his entourage taking up 17 ROOMS!

Cristiano Ronaldo has wasted little time in ensuring he and his family are royally received in their new homeland, MailOnline can reveal.

The star striker, whose move to Saudi Arabia last week has made him a super-millionaire, is living in accommodation fit for a king that affords him the best view of the capital in the plushest of surroundings.

The former Manchester United star, who has signed for the largely unheralded Al-Nassr in the Saudi Pro League with a package worth more than £400m, is staying in the Kingdom Tower, one of the tallest buildings in the country.

He has been put up in one of the best suites that Riyadh can offer in one of 17 rooms occupied by his entourage, including his family, friends and security detail.

The self-proclaimed ‘GOAT’ hardly has to lift a finger as his every need is tended to inside the plush suite of the hotel where the best room sizes cover more than 3000ft.

He has been booked into the giant-sized suite for a month and the Kingdom Suite, one of the best in the 99-story building, stretches to two floors.

The cost of the hotel suite is not even listed on the hotel’s website and has to be booked privately, as does the adjacent ‘Royal Suite’. But the smaller ‘Presidential Suite’ can be booked online and the cost for a night is a staggering £3300 a night.

It is estimated that the hotel bill for Ronaldo and his entourage will surpass £250,000 when he checks out and has found a permanent home for his partner Georgina Rodríguez and their five children.

Until then they can enjoy the most spectacular views of the city and tuck into the finest food at their five-star temporary home.

The hotel says of its Kingdom Suite: ‘Entertain guests with unparalleled views of Riyadh. Our newest two-storey suite spans the 48th and 50th floors of the Hotel, with a soaring living room, a private office, a dining room and a media room.’

Its ‘Royal Suite’ offers less space, but at 2,595ft it would still be bigger than most apartments in Britain, where Ronaldo twice lived during his stints with Manchester United.

The hotel says the suite offers panoramic views of Riyadh ‘and its surroundings lend a unique sense of exclusivity to this versatile suite, which features an elegant dining room, pantry, living room and executive study.’

To dine the Portuguese star can enjoy ‘the best of dishes from China, Japan, India and the Middle East, with the freshest ingredients to order.’

As an athlete, the 37-year-old player has to be careful how much food he consumes and keep an eye on the fats and calories.

But if he wants to indulge, a full fry up for breakfast or the hotel’s signature dishes which include sea bass, beef cutlets and many of the finest lamb and chicken dishes by top chefs for dinner are available to the footballer, who describes himself as ‘unique’.

Because of his celebrity status, chefs are providing an exclusive in-room dining service for Ronaldo and his family.

Staff have been asked not to request selfies with the star, but he has been accommodating guests and their children and has been seen thanking hotel workers as he enters and leaves.

The finest dining elsewhere in the Saudi capital has also attracted Ronaldo, who on Saturday night visited Japanese restaurant Miyazo which offers ‘contemporary cuisine driven by passion, for an opulent world and a creative lifestyle.’

He was seen wearing a gold and black patterned zip-up jacket and a giant crucifix and posed for selfies at the request of diners as his security guards looked on.

Ronaldo has also dined on Lebanese cuisine with a Saudi prince and the country’s top sports officials at upmarket Diriyah.

Georgina, who has 44 million Instagram followers, compared to Ronaldo, who has 530 million, has also found the hotel very much to her liking as it offers her luxury shops on her doorstep and is set in a mall which houses favoured brands such as Louis Vuitton and the less pricey Zara which she has been spotted in.

There are also tennis courts, massage treatments and a spa with a sauna and steam room.

If Ronaldo wants to turn on the romance with Georgina, the hotel can offer him an exclusive evening meal on the Sky Bridge, at the top of the Kingdom Tower, which is one of Riyadh’s most popular tourist destinations.

His hotel has promised to seal off the entire Bridge from the public and set up a

table in the centre of the bridge. On its website, the Four Seasons states: ‘Riyadh’s most breath-taking view is all yours during a private dinner for two at Sky Bridge.

‘Spanning the top of Kingdom Centre, home to Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh, the 300-metre-high bridge gives you an unmatched panorama of the glittering city below.

‘At a candlelit table set at the centre of the bridge, you’ll indulge in a three-course gourmet dinner prepared for you by our Four Seasons culinary team.

‘A professional photographer will capture every romantic moment. . . from dusk till dawn, the stars will never leave your eyes.’

While Ronaldo and his family stay in their hotel, a search is ensuing to find them a permanent quality bolt hole.

Ronaldo and his family are likely to live in one of the city’s prestigious neighbourhoods, such as Al Muhammadiyah, which is known for its top-end restaurants, or Al Nakheel, which is popular with families due to its international schools.

Both areas are close to Al Nassr’s 28,000-seat stadium at Mrsool Park, formerly known as the King Saud University Stadium, and boast a large number of high-end gated compounds, built for Western residents.

Many feature their own swimming pools, pre-schools, shops, clinics, gyms and restaurants, meaning residents hardly ever have to leave.

The compounds allow expats to indulge in weekend get-togethers with fellow Westerners behind closed doors, although alcohol is banned as it is throughout Saudi Arabia.

Property rental websites in Saudi Arabia do not list any high-end rental compound properties as they tend to be let out through private agreements with employers of expats.

But properties currently for sale in Riyadh include an eight-bedroom palace priced at 55 million Saudi Riyal (£12.2million) which includes an Olympic-sized swimming pool and a reception foyer with waterfall-features and three additional villas in its grounds.

The palace which could sit alongside Ronaldo’s reported portfolio of eight other properties around the world is in the Al Macqa neighbourhood just three miles from Mrsool Park, and includes accommodation for maids and chauffeurs.

He has plenty of time to help Georgina and aides locate a suitable mansion as he is banned from playing competitive football until he has served a two-match suspension for hitting a mobile phone out of the hand of an Everton-supporting schoolboy last April.

But he is set to appear against his great rival for the title of ‘GOAT’, the newly crowned World Cup-winning Argentine captain Lionel Messi.

An Al-Nassr source said he is likely to play ‘around 30 minutes’ in a friendly against Messi and PSG in Saudi Arabia on January 19, three days before he makes his Saudi Pro League debut for his table-topping team at home against Ettifaq, who are eighth.
