Cristiano Ronaldo tops annual list of highest-paid footballers

In 2020 it looked like the footballer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (July 1) that Ronaldo is the highest-paid footballer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between June 2021 and June 2022, a nearly $60 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The Portuguese footballer has an estimated net worth of $275 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Ronaldo Burger” chain) in Lisbon, a Football Team (the “Funchal Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderonaldo - Portugal), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Cristiano) and a fashion line called “Cristiano Ronaldo Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Cristiano fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
