What do you buy football’s number one football agent for his wedding?
Super-agent Jorge Mendes is today getting married to his long-term partner, Sandra Barbosa, in Portugal.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Mendes’ premier client, will be the best man at the event, and according to the word on street, the Real Madrid superstar has bought his personal power-broker a Greek island as a wedding present.
We knew Greece were in financial dire straits, but they are selling off land?! That’s crazy.
The news of Ronaldo’s gift was originally reported by Portuguese website Move Noticias.
According to the report, Ronaldo has spent an eye-watering 50 million euros on buying the island for his agent.
Mendes is one of the richest men in Portugal, with a fortune believed to be in excess of €100 million.
Ronaldo won’t be the only footballer in attendance at the wedding, as he’ll be joined by James Rodriguez, Pepe and Radamel Falcao.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is also set to be at the event, along with Sporting CP coach Jorge Jesus.
Other leading football personalities invited include Florentino Perez, Roman Abramovich, Peter Lim and Joan Laporta.
