Cristiano Ronaldo is without any doubt the most famous player Portugal has ever produced. The 38-year-old managed to win five Ballon d’Or awards in the same era as Lionel Messi, which speaks volumes about his legacy.

He was only a teenager when Sir Alex Ferguson decided to bring him in from Sporting CP to Manchester United, before the striker caught Real Madrid’s eye. Now, Ronaldo is spending his sunset years in Saudi Arabia.

In the meantime, he made history with his country, scoring in five consecutive World Cups and helping Portugal win their first ever title at the Euro 2016. But the years have passed and his market value is no longer that high.
