Most newly-weds tend to receive a pile of gifts containing such items as dinner sets, toasters, bed linen etc, but that sort of present would be far too understated for the current World Player of the Year. Oh no, Ronaldo has just gone and bought his agent a Greek island, as you do.
Ronaldo, who was the best man for Jorge Mendes’ wedding at the weekend, is said to have a good knowledge of the Greek islands as he holidays there, according to Mundo Deportivo (via BBC).
Ronaldo’s former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was also at the wedding, presumably getting to know the star’s agent during Ronaldo’s time at the Old Trafford club.
Since then, Ronaldo has won some of world football’s most coveted team and individual awards, as well as having endorsements around the globe. Now a multi-millionaire, Ronaldo is capable of splashing out on those closest to him, buying an island for his agent being a case in point.
According to the BBC, the price for Greek islands starts at about €3 million on one website called Private Islands Online.
We have a sneaking feeling many more close friends of Ronaldo may just happen to make the Real Madrid star their best man in the coming years.
