Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most famous and successful soccer players in the world. He has an amazing story of overcoming adversity to achieve his goals. This book tells his complete story - from growing up poor in Portugal to becoming one of the richest and most famous athletes on the planet.
Cristiano Ronaldo was born on February 5, 1985, in the Portuguese island of Madeira. Growing up in a poor, single-parent home, Ronaldo developed a strong work ethic early on in life. When he was just eight years old, he began playing for a local youth team, and it quickly became apparent that he had exceptional talent. At age 12, Ronaldo was signed by Lisbon-based club Sporting CP, and he soon rose through the ranks to become one of their most promising young players. In 2003, at age 18, Ronaldo made his debut for Portugal's national team.
The following year, he caught the attention of global soccer powerhouse Real Madrid with a string of impressive performances at the UEFA European Championship. Madrid paid a then-record fee of 94 million to sign Ronaldo from Sporting CP in 2009. Since joining Real Madrid, Ronaldo has established himself as one of the greatest soccer players of all time. He has won five Ballon d'Or awards (an annual prize given to the world's best player), four European Golden Shoe awards (given to the top scorer in Europe), and numerous other honors. In 2018, he joined Italian club Juventus FC in a deal worth over 100 million.
