WTF Did Cristiano Ronaldo Just Give His Agent For A Wedding Present!???
An island. In Greece. Estimated to have potentially cost upwards of $55 million! Of course if Cristiano Ronaldo is the best man man at your wedding, you’re getting a fucking island in Greece to do whatever it is that you want to do with an entire island in Greece! If we’re talking about me, well, I’d immeadiately do something like this…
Yahoo Sports reports on the Real Madrid star’s gratitude:
Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t bother leafing through the Argos catalogue when he wanted to buy a wedding present for his agent Jorge Mendes.
Instead, the Real Madrid star – who is best man at his long-time friend and confidant’s marriage today – decided to stepover the pyrex dishes, mug trees, fondue sets and towel (not Gareth) bales, and splash out a bit more than most of the 400 guests who are expected to attend.
But the 30-year-old will not be wrapping up his gift as it is a Greek island.
Greece has decided to sell off some of its islands in a bid to help clear up its crippling financial problems and according to Portuguese publication Move Noticias, Ronaldo splashed out anything from €3m to €50m for the non-disclosed land.
The exact location of the island has not yet been revealed and neither was the price paid for it, presumably because it is rude to know how much you have spent on a gift – and to make sure the media give Mendes some peace and quiet if and when he goes there.
I guess when a guy lands you a contract in excess of $205 million (the picture above is from the day Cristiano Ronaldo signed that deal) he totally deserves an island. Just makes sense.
Hey Cristiano, want to be my best man someday? I can totally put the Barcelona fandom aside for a Greek isle, but nothing less than that. Maybe.
