Cristiano Ronaldo Just Made The Easiest $20 Million Of His Life

If you earned the average UK wage (£13.50 per hour) it would take you roughly 108 years to make £12,922,818.

Cristiano Ronaldo just made this much - not for playing football, but thanks to having a ridiculously nice house.

The second best footballer in the world just made €20 million from some guy called Martin Scorsese so that he could use his New York pent house to film sequences for his latest project, The Manipulator.

The story goes that in return for using his marble-floored $18 million Manhattan loft pad, Ronaldo was to receive a cameo role in the project, which follows the life of Italian real-estate millionaire Alessandro Proto (a guy who claims to be the inspiration for Fifty Shades of Grey's Christian Grey). 

However, Proto protested at the star casting, telling the Daily Mirror:  "I don't want him in a film about my life. Martin Scorsese is in agreement with me. Cristiano Ronaldo is not going to be in the film."

Ronaldo will thus be compensated some €20 million, after producers agreed that Ronaldo's on-screen appearance would have little to do with his acting credentials, and could detract from the overall story.

"I am sorry if he doesn't feel valued, but in life you win some and you lose some," said Proto. "If I really have to give him €20million, I will give it to him with my own hands."

So in short, Ronaldo just made several million because he owns a flat worth several million.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
