Ronaldo estimates he will spend $60 million, to purchase a brand-new Gulfstream 650 plane for his family to travel on.
Ronaldo used the G650 for several months before purchasing it outright.
Ronaldo sold the Gulfstream 200 after traveling to Saudi Arabia to play football because he felt it was too tiny and couldn’t accommodate his family of seven’s travel requirements.
He has frequently used a private plane to meet his own needs over the previous few months, although this player frequently contracts with private airlines.
He decided to purchase a jet only now.
According to Spanish media, the 38-year-old has frequently rented a Gulfstream 650 for several months and is extremely pleased with it.
With a carrying capacity of 18 passengers and about 3 tons of cargo, this supҽrsonic aircraft can transport many amenities.
With a takeoff range of just 1.7 km and two rear-mounted Rolls-Royce BR725 engines with 16,900 lbs of torque each, the G650 is capable of short takeoff runs.
The G650 has a 13,000 mile range and can travel nonstop from Saudi Arabia to any airport in Europe. The G650 made headlines in 2013 when it flew around the globe in under 41 hours, 7 minutes, shattering speed records in the process.
The whole inside of the airplane’s seats is covered with handcrafted leather.
All divans and single chairs can be made into beds.
Internet access, four 42-inch flat-screen TVs, conveniences, and roomy accommodations are all included in the cabin.
Just behind the G650ER and G700 variants, the G650 is one of Gulfstream’s three priciest aircraft.
It is also among the most costly private aircraft on the planet, falling short of “supҽr products” like the Airbus ACJ, Boeing Business Jet, and Bombardier Global 7000 ($73 million, 75 million, and 75 million, respectively) (100).
Messi beats Ronaldo’s previous record
Lionel Messi surpassed Cristiano Ronaldo in terms of goals scored at the club level in Europe on April 8 thanks to France’s goal in PSG’s 2-0 victory against Nice in Ligue 1.
After the goal he scored in the 26th minute of the win over Nice, Messi now has 702 goals in 846 games for European clubs, including PSG and Barcelona.
Cristiano Ronaldo previously held the record, scoring 701 goals in 949 games for Sporting Lisbon, Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Juventus.
Despite playing fewer than 105 games, Messi surpassed Ronaldo’s record.
In the game against Nice, Messi helped Sergio Ramos secure a 2-0 victory and reached the 1000 club goal milestone in Europe.
Messi has 702 goals and 298 assists in this category, per FOX and ESPN Stats.
Ronaldo has a two-year contract with the Asian club Al Nassr, making it nearly difficult for him to overtake Messi in the above scoring record.
Although playing well for PSG, Messi says that he won’t stop at 702 goals for European clubs.
After 34 games this season, the Argentine supҽrstar has 19 goals and 18 assists for the French squad.
Messi has 14 goals and 14 assists this season in Ligue 1 alone, after contributing one goal and one assist against Nice.
Twitter user @Desmund Oris challenged the notion that Lionel Messi was underwhelming at PSG by contrasting Messi’s stats with those of Marcus Rashford of Manchester United.
Rashford, who is regarded as the finest player in the Premier League, scored 15 goals and provided four assists.
Messi is not given the recognition he deserves, in @Desmund Oris’ opinion, since he is a victim of his own success.
Messi has scored 58 goals for PSG and the Argentina team in 45 starts since the start of Ligue 1 in 2022–2023.
His most recent performance enabled PSG to end Nice’s 14-match winning streak and clinch first place in Ligue 1 with six points ahead of Lens.
