CR7 Blocks Popular Website Over Low Transfer Value

Having once held the record of being the most valuable player in the world, Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo's worth has suffered a natural decline in recent years, and he's reportedly not happy about that fact being made public.

During his time at Real Madrid, Ronaldo's market value peaked at a remarkable figure of €120 million (R2 billion) across various periods with the club, according to popular football website Transfermarkt

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner recently turned 35, however, and his value has suffered a natural decline as he nears what is perceived to be the back-end of his professional career in football, with it currently standing at €65 million (R1.1 million).

That figure ranks Ronaldo as the 45th most-valuable player in the world - a fact that the Portugal international has reportedly not taken kindly to - and he allegedly blocked the website on the grounds that he was unhappy with his market value.

In a 'Starting XI' post of super-agent Jorgen Mendes' most-valuable clients, among whom Ronaldo is included, Transfermarkt's official Instagram account confirmed that they had in fact been blocked by the global superstar.

It is unlikely, however, that Ronaldo himself was responsible for blocking the website, as the former Sporting Lisbon and Manchester United forward is believed to have a team of social media experts who run his various social media accounts.
