While veteran players generally drop down to value of a few million dollars at 36-year-old, Ronaldo is an anomaly. Still pretty much at the top of his game chipping in with goals, Ronaldo is valued at a whooping 45 million.

This certainly speaks volumes about the Portuguese and his commitment to the beautiful game. While the United side last season was solid defensively, one thing they lacked last season was goals.
