Cristiano Ronaldo: Rich Premier League Instagram list shows potential charges for Man Utd hero

Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the famous people on the planet.

When the Portuguese superstar stepped down for Manchester United this summer, it was enough to look at the monstrous social media engagement and kit sales to see how much of a deal it really was.

While, yes, you and I are familiar with Ronaldo’s remarkable achievements in the beautiful game, the iconic status of the 36-year-old is such that he transcends the sport he calls his own.

Ronaldo’s global profile

Besides, it’s a safe bet that you could stop members of the public who haven’t even watched a single football game in their life and would still be able to recognize Ronaldo.

And whether you’re one of those who downplays footballer activity off the pitch or not, there’s no denying that Ronaldo’s social media presence has played a huge role in his profile.

Understandably, Ronaldo has a huge presence on his Twitter and Facebook pages, but it’s Instagram where his worldwide fame really becomes evident.

With an impressive 353 million followers on the photo-sharing app, Ronaldo is the most followed human on the platform with only Instagram’s own page having more followers.

Record Instagram statistics

Yes, that’s right, United’s chief scorer overtakes everyone from Drake, Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and so on, while – for those of you wondering – Lionel Messi has 272 million followers. .

Now that’s all well and good, but what does it really mean? Well, the answer is a lot of money, because that means Ronaldo’s reach with sponsorship deals is literally unmatched.

And the staggering fees Ronaldo could potentially demand on Instagram were estimated by Myprotein, which conducted a study to establish the Premier League Instagram Rich List.

Myprotein looked at each Premier League player’s Instagram accounts at the time of writing and calculated how much money they could all order for a single sponsored post.

Pretty fascinating, right? Well, even more so if you consider the astronomical fees Ronaldo can charge, then be sure to check out the top ten, as well as the full chart, below:

10. Marcus Rashford (Manchester United) – £ 50,740 per post

9. N’Golo Kante (Chelsea) – £ 51,170 per post

8. Roberto Firmino (Liverpool) – £ 55,900 per post


7. Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City) – £ 64,070 per post

6. Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City) – £ 66,220 per post

5. Raphaël Varane (Manchester United) – £ 73,530 per post

4. Thiago Silva (Chelsea) – £ 77,400 per post


3. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) – £ 189,200 per post

2. Paul Pogba (Manchester United) – £ 208,120 per post

1. Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United) – £ 1,505,000 per post


Complete list


An icon among mortals

Wows. Imagine being able to become a millionaire from just one Instagram post, then have the occasional £ 505,000 to play with afterwards.

While Ronaldo is said to make between £ 350,000 and £ 550,000 a week at Old Trafford, the Portuguese could technically earn more from the Instagram sponsorship deals.

Furthermore, if Ronaldo published just one sponsorship article each month, Myprotein’s findings suggest he would pocket insane £ 18,060,000 each year.


However, it’s the staggering difference between Ronaldo and other Premier League players that really stands out, with the United star earning £ 1,296,880 more per position than Pogba.

So, of course, the GOAT conversation and Ronaldo’s place in it are certainly up for debate, but there’s no denying that he’s the best dog when it comes to playing the fame game. Fair play, Cristiano.
