In a way, we could say to ourselves that it’s always the same people who have everything.
If you’re here, we assume you already know that Cristiano Ronaldo moved his small family to Saudi Arabia to don Al-Nassr’s uniform for the tidy sum of more than 220 million dollars per season. It’s probably more than that, but let’s be conservative.
Since he played his first matches, Asia is rediscovering his passion for great moments with one of the best players in history, and the results, so far, are positive.
But we don’t want to talk about what’s happening on the pitch.
This week, we saw a gift CR7 received from luxury jeweler Jacob & Co.
The new resident of Arabia unveiled this incredible watch, worth over $1 million, in the colors of his new adopted nation.
The jeweler pulled out all the stops with the gems and the watch is simply hard not to notice on Ronaldo’s wrist. Moreover, it is presumed that it was for the publicity that the jeweler did the whole thing, Ronaldo being the most followed athlete in the world on social media.
Except that the price range of the watch will probably rule out the majority of CR7 subscribers.
So, here, let’s ask the flat question: why does he receive such big gifts when he could afford dozens of watches like that without putting a dent in his budget?
As we said: it’s always the same people who have everything.
