Juventus talisman Cristiano Ronaldo will become the third sportsman in the world after golf star Tiger Woods and boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr to attain the status of a billionaire.
The Old Lady announced a massive pay cut to help them during a period of loss of revenue, but it won’t affect the Portuguese superstar negatively too much.
Thanks to the brand that is CR7, he exclusively earned about €100m only in 2019, but in his career, he is expected to reach the $1bn club in 2019-20, even with the three-month pay cut at the Bianconeri.
Only Barcelona star Lionel Messi earned more than Ronaldo last season, but the fact that the 35-year-old has almost played 18 seasons of professional football helps him become the first-ever footballer to reach $1bn during his career.
Business Insider also reports that Roger Federer will become the first billionaire in tennis this year. Only golf and boxing champions have reached the number of active players, whilst basketball legend Michael Jordan is the third member of the club currently.
