“Instead of that let’s check out the brand value of Cristiano Ronaldo in the world”
For beinghe ,The world word personality is similar to potentiality. To understand the potentiality, we prefer to look at the backgroud life of personality and how he/she becomes a brand.
Born in February 5, 1985, the youngest of four children – two girls and two boys has started his career from Andorinha to Nacional and then to the mainland with Sporting CP where young cristiano finally signed as a 12-year-old after battling his way through a three-day trial that would have halted boys of lesser character. In 2003 he became contracted senior football player with Manchester United. Rest we know the history or you can Google.
But his journey with business the world started when he signed his endorsement with Global Nutrition company, Herbalife, first partnered with Ronaldo in 2013, when it launched a co-branded sports drink, ‘Herbalife24 CR7 Drive’.

“We try to dig something”
There are a lot of unconfirmed reports on the internet from lead PR networks and media organizations but none of them ever presented concrete evidence.
However, we are trying to mention few of them.
