Forbes rich list: Ronaldo now earns more than Messi
Cristiano Ronaldo keeps on winning—or earning, at the very least.
Forbes announced that the Manchester United star has passed Lionel Messi as the world’s highest-paid soccer player with earnings of roughly $125 million. Ronaldo, who is the first team-sport athlete ever to make more than $1 billion in pre-tax career earnings, earns $70 million in wages and a whopping $55 million from endorsement deals.
Bolstered by his own brand of perfume, underwear, eyewear, hotels and gyms, Ronaldo only trails Conor McGregor ($158 million), Roger Federer ($90 million), LeBron James ($65 million) and Tiger Woods ($60 million) in off-field earnings, according to Forbes.
