“I actually don't really think about it right now I just want to wait and see how I'm gonna feel when the things are presented. Obviously there's a few things I'm worried about but they're not important.”

Ginola has appeared in a slew of films such as Rosbeef, which premiered at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival, as well as having a cameo the ITV drama programme At Home With the Braithwaites. He also had a short-lived stint running for the new president of FIFA in 2015.

The estimated net worth of Ronaldo is slightly higher than that of his long-time rival Lionel Messi, though the Argentine has won more lucrative contracts in recent years. Ronaldo was ranked third on Forbes' 2021 list of the highest paid athletes in the world, with earnings of $120 million (£87m) - $50 million (£36m) of that was accrued through off-field ventures. On that occasion, the Portugal captain was behind UFC fighter Conor McGregor, who topped the list, and Messi, who was second. He was, however, ahead of the likes of Dak Prescott, LeBron James and Neymar, among others."<br/> }<br/> },{<br/> "@type": "Question",<br/> "name": "What is Cristiano Ronaldo's salary?",<br/> "acceptedAnswer": {<br/> "@type": "Answer",<br/> "text": "Ronaldo is expected to earn roughly £480,000 per week at Manchester United, or €23m (£19.7m/$27m) - a pay cut from his €30m ($34m/£26m) a year salary at Juventus. Prior to his switch to Juve, Ronaldo had signed a contract with Real Madrid in November of 2016, which was reported to be around £365,000 a week before bonuses. The Portugal captain's contract earnings mean that he is among the most lucratively rewarded footballers in the world."<br/> }<br/> },{<br/> "@type": "Question",<br/> "name": "What sponsorship deals does Cristiano Ronaldo have?",<br/> "acceptedAnswer": {<br/> "@type": "Answer",<br/> "text": "Ronaldo's most significant sponsorship deal is with Nike, which was renewed around the same time he extended his last Madrid contract. The agreement with Nike is said to be the second lifetime contract the sportswear giant has handed out after it offered similar terms to three-time NBA champion LeBron James. The Los Angeles Lakers icon's deal has been speculated to be worth in excess of $1 billion in total, though exactly how that breaks down year-by-year is kept under wraps. Naturally, many have assumed that Ronaldo has signed on a comparable basis. Though the $1bn figure seems extraordinary, it is worth noting that sponsorship analysts Hookit estimated that Ronaldo's social-media presence alone was worth an incredible $474m to Nike in 2016. Prior to the new agreement, most sources had Ronaldo's annual earnings from Nike at a few million less than his old Madrid salary. Beyond Nike, Ronaldo has had endorsement deals with the likes of Armani, Tag Heuer, Egyptian Steel, Herbalife, Italia Independent, Clear, PokerStars and Castrol."<br/> }<br/> },{<br/> "@type": "Question",<br/> "name": "What businesses does Cristiano Ronaldo have?",<br/> "acceptedAnswer": {<br/> "@type": "Answer",<br/> "text": "As well as representing a number of brands, Ronaldo has created his own around the CR7 image. It is mostly centred on his underwear line but has also evolved to include various other clothing, leisure and home products. In addition, Ronaldo has two hotels - named Pestana CR7 - in Portugal: one in the capital, Lisbon, and another in Funchal, his hometown on the island of Madeira. In late 2016, he expanded into gyms in a partnership with US health company Crunch, with the first outlet under the 'CR7 Fitness' name opened in Madrid.

The website acclaimed Ronaldo for using his fame to promote a variety of causes including childhood hunger, obesity and biodiversity and highlighted an $83,000 donation to a 10-year-old fan in need of brain surgery as well as a $165,000 contribution to a cancer centre in Portugal that treated his mother. After the 2016 Champions League final, it was reported that the ex-Manchester United man instructed his agent Jorge Mendes to donate his €600,000 win bonus to a non-governmental organisation. Ronaldo has supported the likes of UNICEF, World Vision and Save the Children in the past.

As of the summer of 2021, his overall following across those platforms was 498 million. His Facebook page, in particular, is by far the most popular of any athlete on the platform. Ronaldo has over 149 million followers - far more than Messi's 104 million and even further ahead of the top non-footballer, Dwayne Johnson, also known as The Rock, who is back on 58 million. On Instagram, meanwhile, Ronaldo also leads the way as the most-followed person with 335 million followers.
