With a weekly base salary of £274,000, Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the wealthiest players not only in football but just about every sport.
The star of Real Madrid also earns a constant flow of cash after having released a line of shirts, underwear, fragrances and footwear.
The Portuguese star has added a new line of product to his name and this latest addition is blankets as he partnered up with the American company Elite Team.
Cristiano Ronaldo signed a 3 year long deal with Elite Team and this agreement allows the American company to have exclusive worldwide rights to produce, distribute and market the signature luxury blankets.
These blankets are in the higher section of price as they can range from around $60-$130, which might be a fairly high amount of money for a blanket.
After signing with Elite Team, Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo voiced his satisfaction and happiness as he said: “I am very excited to partner with Elite Team and launch my signature line of CR7 luxury blankets. I am incredibly impressed with the level of quality and craftsmanship; it truly is the most comfortable blanket I have ever felt and complements my already established CR7 brands perfectly.”
Dan Sinykin is the president of Elite Team as well as the chief executive and he voiced to the public how it’s been to sign an exclusive contract with the Portuguese superstar as Dan said: On behalf of Elite Team, we are thrilled to be working alongside a person as extraordinary as Cristiano Ronaldo, a world famous athlete with inspiring leadership qualities’’
“Cris’ unique ability to transcend his success on the pitch to building his personal brand outside of soccer is redefining class and luxury. We look forward to a successful partnership.”
