I’ve done everything for Ballon d’Or this season – Cristiano Ronaldo

Real Madrid and Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo says 2016 has been his best year and that he has done everything he can to win the Ballon d’Or.


Ronaldo, 31, won Euro 2016 with his country this summer and scored 51 goals in 48 matches for Madrid as they won the Champions League trophy.


After his hat trick in the Madrid derby, coach Zinedine Zidane said there was no doubt about who should win the Ballon d’Or, and Ronaldo insists he has a great chance.


“I’ve done everything for this season,” he told Telefoot. “We won the Champions League, I won the Euros with Portugal. The vote doesn’t depend on me and I don’t want to be obsessed with it.


“But if you ask me if I want to win the Ballon d’Or, I’d say yes. This year has been amazing for me, with all the trophies. It’s my best season, no doubt about that.”


The winner of the prize, now voted for by journalists, will be announced on Dec. 13, with Lionel Messi, Neymar and Antoine Griezmann all in the running.

OMG! You Won’t Believe What Cristiano Ronaldo Bought His Agent As Wedding Gift

It must be rewarding being friends with Cristiano Ronaldo.

According to Portuguese news outlet Move Noticas, the Real Madrid star reportedly bought his agent and close friend Jorge Mendes a Greek island as a wedding present. Ronaldo acted as the best man at Mendes’ wedding this past weekend. Of course, being the best man also means you have to splash the cash for a pretty good wedding gift.

While for most people that typically means buying expensive kitchen appliances and silverware, for Ronaldo that means purchasing a Greek island.

The exact amount Ronaldo paid hasn’t yet been reported. But, according to Private Islands Online, the costs of a Greek island ranges from $3.4 million to $54 million. Price, however, shouldn’t be too much of a concern for Ronaldo. In the last year alone he made nearly $80 million, making him the third-highest-paid athlete in the world, according to Forbes.
