A big reason for this has been down to that never-wavering determination to be the best in history. And after nearly two glory-laden decades, who’s to say he hasn’t achieved his goal?

One perk associated with Ronaldo’s astonishing career is the fortune that’s come his way. His net worth is approximately $460m (€408m), making him the richest footballer in the world. Therefore, CR7 has invested in some luxurious homes over the years.
