Jordan Lebron Ronaldo

Many times their skills have been compared despite one being gifted with his feet and the other  with his hands, We are talking of course, about Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid and Michael Jordan, icon and legend of the Chicago Bulls basketball team. Despite coming from different sports, the two men are symbolic in so many ways and they both have untold wealth in their respective bank accounts.
 
After extending his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu, Ronaldo has also renewed his sponsorship deal with sports giant Nike, a deal he has had in place since 2003. CR7 is now set to earn the same as what Jordan did when he wore the famous tick logo; a cool €480 million. There is someone else we have forgot to mention however, Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James who, like the two men already mentioned, has signed a contract with Nike for life. Here we have three sportsmen who have become part of another dimension when it comes to sports branding.
