As probably the most marketable footballer in the world, it's no surprise Cristiano Ronaldo pulls in a pretty hefty fee for commercial appearances. But the actual reported amount is staggering.

According to a document released by Football Leaks (via the Sun), the Real Madrid superstar raked in a staggering £860,000 for one deal with Saudi Arabian telecoms giant Mobily.

The huge 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.

That, my friends, is easy money.
