How Cristiano Ronaldo Became the Highest-Paid Sportsman in History

Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably one of the most talented footballers of our generation. He is also the highest-paid sportsman in the world. The mercurial superstar found his talent in his country, Portugal while he was still very young. He was the child prodigy whose skills with football dazzled those who watched him play. Born in Funchal, the Portuguese Madeira Island, in 1985, Ronaldo wasn’t one to waste his natural talent. He joined an amateur club called Andorinha at the age of eight and managed to impress his father who was in charge of the club.

He moved to the country’s capital when Sporting Lisbon signed him for £1,500, but, he became famous during the World Under-17-Championships.

On his 18th birthday, his country’s national team, Nacional, drafted him. Several European clubs were impressed by his agility and speed, and within a few years of playing football, he was one of the most-wanted men in the industry. He is a fitness freak who loves to train every day and shows little sign of weakness on the pitch.

Ronaldo celebrated his 34th birthday in 2019 with no plan of retirement in view because he is at the pinnacle of his career. Lionel Messi and Ronaldo are unfortunate when it comes to who is the best among them. Fans compare the two players side by side every season with many criteria, and the result is bitter to the losing side.
