Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have been competing against each other for very long time and while the Portuguese no longer plies his business in Spain, the pair continues to lock horns on and off the pitch.
The pair’s ascent to the top of their field came with wages to match, allowing them access to the so many luxuries that many paupers can only dream of.
Proof of this comes in the form of their private jets, with a recent ranking by English publication ‘The Sun‘ of footballer’s private jets putting Messi’s in second place.
Messi’s Embraer Legacy
The Argentine star owns an Embraer Legacy that he makes use of to jet off on international duty and for family trips. The plane is valued at €28.3m.
As is to be expected, the aeroplane boasts all sorts of onboard luxuries, including a fully-equipped and spacious kitchen, a big bathroom and reclining leather seats. There are three different sections of the plane: a private area with two divan beds, an additional restroom and a meeting area. Between 12 and 14 people can travel on the jet at any one time.
Ronaldo’s Gulfstream G650
perhaps unsurprisingly Ronaldo’s aeroplane came in first in the rating, along with his Gulfstream G650 valued at €31.7m.
Ronaldo’s jet boasts more advanced technology than Messi’s, including the “Triplex Flight Management System”, a 3D meteorological radar, superior flight controls and an emergency landing move.
In line with Gulfstream, the plane “reduces fatigue because of the implementation of a system which replenishes 100 % fresh air every two minutes.” The aeroplane has a capacity of 18 people and can reach speeds of 981km/h
