Cristiano Ronaldo smiles to the bank with £860,000 just for a photoshoot

There should be less debate about the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo is the most social and marketable football player on the planet.

His movie-star good looks, larger than life persona and wonderfully sculpted body make him a magnet for high-brow commercials, naturally. Plus, he's the most popular footballer on social media.

Hence it should come as no surprise that the three-time Ballon d'Or winner commands hefty fees for commercial appearances and publicity digs.‎

However, the actual cost of securing the Portuguese's services is over-the-top staggering, even for global superstar status.

According to a document released by Football Leaks, the 31-year-old forward raked in a staggering £860,000 for one deal with Saudi Arabian telecoms giant Mobily.

The eye-watering fee was handed over to Ronaldo in exchange for five signed Portugal shirts, two social media posts and a photoshoot of up to four-and-a-half hours.
