World football superstars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are real money machines. One of the sources of fabulous sums for the players of Barcelona and Juventus is the social network "Instagram". Recently, Ronaldo became the man who receives the most for each of his sponsored publications, and for each such post, the Portuguese receives at least $ 1.6 million.
He is the official face of several global brands that promote their products through Ronaldo's profile, which has over 310 million followers, making him the most followed person on Instagram in the world. His posts there usually have an average of 9 million likes.
His big rival Lionel Messi earns a little less. The Argentine receives $ 1.1 million from each paid Instagram post, ranking seventh in the list of the most followed people there.
