Cristiano Ronaldo’s private jet has cemented his status as 2023’s highest paid athlete being worth approximately $73 million.
His Gulfstream G650 jet reportedly made his move to Saudi Arabia a whole lot easier.
Ronaldo signed for Al Nassr in January, six weeks after his contract with United was terminated by mutual consent.
The Premier League termination followed a blow-up interview with Piers Morgan according to The Athletic.
The 38-year-old is reportedly earning more than $200 million per year at his new club.
And that’s on top of an already impressive nine-figure net worth.
In fact, Cristiano Ronaldo is on his way to becoming the first billionaire soccer player.
This explains why his jet is worth so much.
The jet that facilitated his international move can carry up to 18 passengers and has a range of up to 7,000 nautical miles (12,964 km).
The Gulfstream G650 comes with two Rolls-Royce engines.
It has a high-speed cruise of up to 956 km/h (594 mph) and a maximum speed of Mach 0.925 (1,142 km/h).
It’s advertised as one of the quietest airplanes in the industry and it can have up to four living areas, where you can work, relax, dine or sleep.
Perfect for when his young family are in tow.
Meanwhile, David Beckham’s Bombardier Challenger 350 is worth $21 million – less than a third of the worth of Ronaldo’s.
Beckham might have retired from soccer some time ago, but his net worth is still impressive.
The plane is small(er) but still mighty.
It can seat up to ten, allowing the retired athlete to have his entire family in tow.
A range of 3,682 miles allows him to travel all around Europe and even to Dubai without having to refuel.
