Ronaldo’s most important sponsorship deal is with Nike, which was renewed around the same time that he extended his last contract with Madrid.

The Los Angeles Lakers icon’s deal has been speculated to be worth more than $ 1 billion in total, though exactly how that breaks down year after year is being kept under wraps.
Naturally, many have assumed that Ronaldo has signed on a comparable basis. While the $ 1 billion figure seems extraordinary, it’s worth noting that Hookit sponsorship analysts estimated that Ronaldo’s social media presence alone was worth a staggering $ 474 million for Nike in 2016.
