It is hard to find the net worth of Cristiano Ronaldo. Specifically, it is hard to know if you have found the correct net worth of Cristiano Ronaldo. The values spat at you from a simple Google search range from $160 million to $310 million. They come from sights that have click bait strewn across their page begging you to see “10 Natural Butts That Are Better Than Kim Kardashian’s.” Some come clean and say that the value they provide is an estimate, and others never even actually provide one, which makes me seriously question the capabilities of Google’s search algorithm, but I digress.
In search of the best answer to the question posed in the title of this article, I took to more reputable websites. Low and behold, I found and answer, and it seems to be a trustworthy one to boot.
So, what is Cristiano Ronaldo’s net worth?
According to Goal.com, who took into account salary, endorsements, assets, and outside business interests, Cristiano Ronaldo’s net worth is €210 million ($228 million) as of March, 2015, a huge increase from €148 million ($161 million) in 2014.
This number makes him the richest footballer in the world, richer than Lionel Messi (€200 million/$218 million), Neymar (€135 million/$147 million), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (€105 million/$114 million), and Wayne Rooney (€103 million/$112 million) to name a few.
Unfortunately for Ronaldo, this staggering sum places him well below the richest people in the world. Ronaldo’s net worth is only 0.3% of the net worth of the richest person in the world: Bill Gates, who is valued by Forbes at $79.2 billion. It also pales in comparison to the net worth of tech entrepreneur Elon Musk, $13.6 billion.
Athlete’s might get all the girls, but it seems nerds are destined to get all the Benjamins.
