How He Started

Cristiano Ronaldo was born on 5 February 1985 in Santo Antonio. His father, a municipal gardener took his second name from US former president Ronald Reagan who was his favorite actor. Ronaldo began to play football at the age of 8, he joined amateur side Andorinha where his father worked as an equipment manager, two years later he joined local club Nacional and after winning a title with the team, he joined Sporting Clube de Portugal. Ronaldo was diagnosed with a racing heart at the age of 15, a condition that could’ve ended his football career but after a successful laser surgery, he returned to the game.

His Move To Manchester United

His performance with the Portuguese side attracted attention from top clubs like Liverpool, Arsenal, Barcelona and Manchester United but it was United who finally signed him after coach Alex Ferguson was awed by his skills. At the age of 18, before the 2003/2004 season, Ronaldo became the first Portuguese player to join Manchester United for the sum of £12.24 million.

His success at Manchester rose rapidly, and after his one year contract expired, he signed a 5-year contract extension for £31 million, making him the highest-paid player in the club’s history. In the 2007/2008 season, Ronaldo helped United win the champions league where they beat Chelsea. That season he received his first Ballon d’Or and FIFA World player of the year awards, he became the first premier league player to win the later.

Throughout his stay in Manchester United, he won a total of 9 trophies including 3 premier leagues titles, 2 football league cups, 1 UEFA Champions League, 1 FA cup, 1 FIFA Club World Cup and 1 FA Community shield. He made 292 appearances for the English side scoring 118 goals in all competitions.

Increasing success with Real Madrid

In 2009 Ronaldo joined Spanish La Liga side Real Madrid in a record-breaking transfer fee of £80 million ($132 million) for a 6-year contract deal. He renewed the contract in 2015 which was worth £108 million ($150 million), the contract keeps him in the club until 2018. Again on November 7, 2016, Madrid offered him a new 5-year contract extension that will keep at the Spanish side until 2021 when he will be 36 years old. Ronaldo called the contract his “penultimate” one, meaning he plans to sign yet another one if things go as planned and finally retire with the Spanish side.

Ronaldo makes over $50 million from football and around $35 million from off-pitch activities.

So far with Real Madrid, he has won a total of 15 trophies which includes: 2 Copas Del Rey titles, 3 UEFA Champions League trophies, 2 La Liga Championships, 3 UEFA Super Cups, 2 Supercopa de Espana titles and 3 FIFA Club World Cups.

Cristiano Ronaldo has also broken records in the La Liga history, including the fastest person to score 200 La Liga goals. He is Madrid’s all-time goal scorer beating Raul’s record and the highest scorer in the UEFA Champions League with 80 goals and counting beating his perceived rival Messi’s 77.

Ronaldo has won the FIFA Ballon d’Or for world player of the year for 5 times in 2008, 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017 putting him at par with his only rival Lionel Messi who has won the coveted award for a record 5 times also in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015.

International Football outings

He began his international playing for the Portuguese U – 18 division, he has since been capped over 100 times, becoming the teams’ captain in 2008. With his national side, Ronaldo has participated in six major tournaments- three times (2004, 2008, 2012) in the UEFA European Championships and three times (2006, 20010, 2014) in the FIFA World Cup. In 2015, he was named the best Portuguese player of all-time. He is the all-time highest goal scorer for his national side and helped the team to secure their qualification for the Euro 2016 tournament.

Ronaldo has been named by Forbes magazine as the highest-paid footballer in the world in 2015 with $80 million in earnings and the highest-paid athlete in the world in 2016 with $88 million in earnings dethroning Floyd Mayweather who topped the previous list.
