Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo is now the most followed personality on Instagram, having clocked over 144.4 million followers on the image-sharing platform.
That’s sure to make him some more money whenever he’s up for it.
The Portuguese international takes over from American music star and actress Selena Gomez who currently has 144.3 million followers, in the image-sharing community which is largely dominated by entertainment figures like Ariana Grande, Kim Kardashian, Beyonce and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
Ronaldo who joined Juventus from Real Madrid in July for a €100 million, the highest transfer fee for any player above 30 years, has scored 7 goals in 10 matches for the Turin side who are currently on top of the Italian league.
On the other hand, his former club Real Madrid who have managed only four wins out of 10 are languishing in 9th position in the Spanish Primera Liga. Their last defeat was a heavy 5 – 1 mauling in the El Classico during the weekend, at the hands of their arch-rivals Barcelona.
The absence of Ronaldo is being felt in Madrid. His presence for the time being, is being felt in Italy; and as the figures show, a little more on Instagram too.
