Admit it, we’re all a bit curious at what our favorite athletes get paid, so we’re here to break it down for you. Cristiano Ronaldo is the highest paid soccer player (he plays for Spanish La Liga club Real Madrid and is the captain of the Portuguese national team) in the world, earning over $20 million per year, according to Forbes.
Ronaldo’s net worth as of June 2012 was $42.5 million, and that was almost split up equally between his soccer earnings and multiple endorsement deals. (He gets $20.5 million from his soccer earnings and $22 million from endorsements.) Back in 2010, the soccer star landed a $32.5 million deal with Nike which over about five years would give him a little over $6 million.
Ronaldo has deals with Castro Motor Oil, Konami, Armani, and others.
