Ronaldo added a fifth Ballon d'Or, given to the world's best player, and his fifth Champions League title to his trophy shelf this past season. But the global soccer icon rocked the sporting world with a move to Italian club Juventus in July. He cited a need for a new challenge. Ronaldo's lifetime Nike contract is worth upward of $1 billion. He has an array of other deals including Herbalife, EA Sports and American Tourister, along with a growing line of CR7 branded products including shoes, underwear, fragrance, jeans, a children's line (for which he models with his son), a line of hotels and soon-to-open restaurants in Brazil. He remains the most popular athlete in the world with 322 million social media followers.
