It clearly pays to be the agent of the most famous soccer player in the world at the moment. Cristiano Ronaldo makes an insane amount of money each year playing soccer, much more than any athlete here in the U.S., and it looks like he is putting his cash to good use. Reports say he bought his agent an entire Greek Island for his wedding gift!


Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t really look at the registry list when shopping for a wedding present for his agent, Jorge Mendes. Instead, Ronaldo, the best man of the occasion, gave the greatest gift a best man can give: an entire island.

That’s right, Ronaldo gave the newlywed couple a Greek island valued at anywhere from roughly $5 million to $50 million, a rate made much more affordable by the Greek economic crisis.

The Greek government put a number of islands up for sale in recent weeks, but the exact location of Ronaldo’s hasn’t been made clear.

Sure, Ronaldo can easily afford it, but it’s still a massive gesture for his long-time friend and agent, and it’s a gift that earns Ronaldo the “best’ in best man quite definitively.
