In 2009 Ronaldo smashed the world record for the highest paid transfer fee when he left Manchester United for Real Madrid, with an estimated buyout clause of just under £1billion in his contract.

The global icon made his first transfer in 2003 when he left Sporting Lisbon and joined Man United.

With a combined fee of nearly £100million, some could even say it was money well spent!


Sporting Lisbon to Manchester United, £12.240.000

Manchester United to Real Madrid, £80.000.000

Total transfer fee: £92.240.000
