Players's wealth is no secret and in that sense, Cristiano Ronaldo leads the way. Forbes say the Portuguese is the first tootballer to earn a billion dollars since starting their professional career.
In 2019 alone he earned 105 million before tax (88.5m euros). That's more than anyone, behind Kylie Jenner ('model'), Kanye West (rapper) and Roger Federer (tennis player), joining an exclusive list of players to hit a billion dollars.
In the sports table he's behind only Tiger Woods, who did it in 2009, Boxer Floyd Mayweather, 2017 after his bout with Conor McGregor. Michael Jordan also broke the barrier, the now retired basketball star, hitting 2 billion.
