Cristiano Ronaldo buys every Real Madrid player a £6,500 watch

Published 2 Comments

Cristiano Ronaldo may be one of the greatest players in the world, but he knows football is a team game.

The Real Madrid superstar has thanked his teammates by buying each of them a watch at £6,500 a piece - with more than 20 players in the first-team squad that's more than £120,000!

Ronaldo has scooped up countless individual awards since joining the Bernabeu giants, and he's the favourite to take the Ballon d'Or again in January next year.

But all of those accolades and the remarkable goals record would not be possible without the support of his colleagues in the white of Real Madrid.

As reported by AS in Spain and the Daily Mail in England, the Bvlgari watches have been engraved with 'La Decima' to celebrate Real Madrid's 10th Champions League triumph last season, 'CR7' just in case you forget who bought you the watch and the teammates name.

Alvaro Arbeloa wasted little time posting his gift up on his Instagram account.

The watches were presented to Ronaldo's teammates before Real Madrid's game against Almeria on Friday night, a match they comfortably won 4-1 - and of course Ronaldo was on the scoresheet twice.

He's currently on pace to score 66 La Liga goals this season, while the win over Almeria was Real Madrid's 20th in a row.
