Cristiano Ronaldo earned 1.2 million dollars over two- Arabic-word ad for Saudi telecom company
The Real Madrid star reportedly earned the staggering sum back in 2013 when helping promote a Saudi Arabian telecom company, according to Football Leaks.
Not content with being one of the highest-paid footballers in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo has also been looking to top up his income in the world of advertising.
The Football Leaks website has revealed that the Real Madrid star earned a frankly eye-watering $1.2 million in an advertising deal with Mobily, a Saudi Arabian telecom company.
Of course the Portuguese did have to work hard for his cash with a photo shoot, a meet-and-great with fans, sign five shirts, and write two – yes, two! – social media posts.
