With a net worth of $450 million and 500 million social media followers, Ronaldo is one of the richest and most followed athletes in the world today. So how does one of the greatest players of all-time spend his money? Let’s take a look at some of his most extravagant expenses.
From a $2.5 million Bugatti Chiron to a $300,000 Lamborghini Aventador and three Ferraris, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner owns a total of 19 cars worth over $ 4.9 million. His other cars include a Bentley GT Speed ($220,000), a $200,000 Aston Martin DB9, and few Audi and Mercedez-Benz sports cars. Given that Ronaldo is the most followed athlete in the world, it’s no surprise that he receives some of his wheels in return for promotional purposes.
Ronaldo paid $7.2 million for a mansion in La Finca, one of the richest areas in Madrid. When he played for Manchester United, he bought a $6 million mansion in the exclusive Cheshire Village with some of the deepest personal security one can get. He also owns an $18.5 million 2,509 square Trump Tower condo in New York City that looks over Central Park and the Hudson River. In addition to his 2017 investment in the Cocobay Towers in Vietnam Vietnam, his latest digs in Turin include a double-villa that’s only accessible via a private road.
Worth $36 million, Ronaldo’s personal Gulfstream G200 jet cruises him around the world for quick getaways to sponsorship events. The plane holds up to ten people and two crew members. It also includes a bed and comfortable seating for his friends and family.
From yachts in Ibiza, Costa Navarino in Greece, boat rides in Miami to the chill beaches of St. Tropez, Ronaldo appears to relax as hard as he plays.
Never afraid to try something new, Ronaldo built a hotel in his brand name “Pestana CR7” in his hometown of Madeira, Portugal. You can book a room for £184 per night. He has plans to open up more up in New York, Madrid, and Lisbon.
Ronaldo owns a diamond-encrusted $2.3 million watch from high-end jeweler Jacob and Co. It looks like an art piece. He has an endorsement deal with the company so he might have got a good discount or barter exchange.
Ronaldo digs high-fashion products, and that means he wears the finest Armani suits (he’s also a spokesperson), Off White, and bespoke Dsquared suits. Ronaldo’s also partnered with fashion designer Richard Chai to make his own underwear line.
Ronaldo apparently spent $2.5 million on wine for his daughter’s birthday party. On a separate occasion, he spent £27k on wine in a 15-minute bar visit to Mayfair restaurant in London. And he didn’t even finish the second bottle. Good thing his football skills age like a fine wine.
Some say Ronaldo is a narcissist, but you be the judge. After seeing one of his wax statues at Madame Tussauds, he had one made for his home. Price tag: $31,000.
Not all of Ronald’s expenditures are fun and games. He also likes to hit up the £50,000 walk-in cryotherapy machine to expedite the recovery of his 34-year-old muscles. The icebox is also known to boost mental sharpness. He reportedly splashed £36k to build his own in his Madrid house.
Yes, you read that right. Ronaldo is one of the most charitable athletes in the world. He donated $5 million in aid to Nepal after the country’s disastrous earthquake in 2015, a million-dollar contribution to Save the Children for efforts in Syria, and to top it off, he auctioned his 2013 Ballon d’Or trophy to raise money for Make-A-Wish foundation.
