It must be nice being friends with Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo acted as the best man at Mendes’ wedding this past weekend. Of course, being the best man also means you have to splash the cash for a pretty good wedding gift.
While for most people that typically means buying expensive kitchen appliances and silverware, for Ronaldo that means purchasing a Greek island.
As of December 2014, 20 Greek islands were up for sale.
The exact amount Ronaldo paid hasn’t yet been reported. But, according to Private Islands Online, the costs of a Greek island ranges from $US3.4 million to $US54 million. Price, however, shouldn’t be too much of a concern for Ronaldo. In the last year alone he made nearly $US80 million, making him the third-highest-paid athlete in the world, according to Forbes.
