2. Mansions.

Ronaldo’s career path took him from Sporting Lisbon to Manchester United, Real Madrid, Juventus, and back to the Red Devils.

Following his then-record breaking transfer to Real Madrid for £80million in 2009, a more substantial property was needed.

He chose a stunning £4.8m abode in the expensive La Finca neighbourhood.

In Turin, Ronaldo purchased a secretive property in the outskirts of the city. Not much is known about this property, although the player is believed to still own it, despite leaving Serie A after three seasons.

Back in Madeira, where he was born, he owns a seven-story apartment block in Funchal. The property is valued at £7.6million.

Since re-joining he has been living with his family in a £3.4 million mansion in Cheshire.

3. Private Jet.

When you have one of the most recognisable faces on Earth, sometimes, you need to abandon the 'traditions' so to speak. Instead of flying first class on a regular plane you should consider taking your own exclusive form of transport, which is exactly what Ronaldo has done.

His Gulfstream private jet is believed to be worth around $32 million and is said to be capable of holding over a dozen people for any given flight.

4. Vacations.

From Ibiza to the Greek islands and beyond, there are very few luxury holiday destinations around the globe that Cristiano Ronaldo hasn't visited. The man knows how to relax and he knows how to have a good time, and in the off season of football, you need to be able to unwind however you see fit.
