The 35-year-old is one of football's richest players and recently became a billionaire from his salaries and endorsement deals.

However, he has now snubbed a multi-million offer to become the face of Saudi Arabian tourism, according to The Telegraph.

The deal amounted to 6 million (R110 million) per year, which equates to about €16 350 (just over R300 000) per day, and would have included Ronaldo visiting Saudi Arabia several times and also allowing the Arab nation to use his images on promotional material.

Check here where Ronaldo sat among the richest footballers in 2020:

His longstanding rival Lionel Messi was reportedly also approached by Saudi Arabia's tourism authority, but the Argentine's view on the proposal is unknown at this stage.

Ronaldo and Messi's representatives did not want to comment on the sponsorship offer when contacted by the abovementioned English publication.
