Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo set to make a cool £20million for doing nothing

Ronaldo Celebrates

Cristiano Ronaldo is so good he can earn a load of money without actually having to do anything!

We can think of a few people who can do with a cool $20million more than ex-Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo, but he's managed to make it without doing anything.

And when we say without doing anything we really do mean without doing anything! 

So how on earth did he managed to earn that much?! Well, Ronaldo was set to feature in a small role in Martin Scorsese's new film The Manipulator.

Obviously not be cause his acting talents are amazing, but because Scorsese was going to film some of the film in Ronaldo's $18.4m penthouse apartment in New York.

However, that isn't happening now after the films influence Alessandro Proto vetoed the Portuguese superstar's involvement in the shooting and is now paying him  $20million for his 'troubles' – what those troubles actually were we have no idea. 

There had been an initial agreement for $10million, but Ronaldo's crack team of lawyers claim he feels aggravated and now wants $20m

Speaking to, Proto revealed that he will give Ronaldo the money in person if needs must: "Ronaldo is a great player, but that doesn't mean he is the king of the world.

"I don't want him in a film about my life. Martin Scorsese is in agreement with me. Cristiano Ronaldo is not going to be in the film.

"I am sorry if he doesn't feel valued, but in life you win some and you lose some. If I really have to give him 20 million euros, I will give it to him with my own hands."

Very clever of Ronaldo to get Proto and Scorsese to pay for his apartment...
