Myprotein looked examined every Premier League player's Instagram account at the time of writing and determined how much money each of them might cost for a single sponsored post.

Isn't that fascinating? That's especially true when you consider Ronaldo's enormous fee, so make sure to check out the top 10, as well as the whole graphic, down below:

Marcus Rashford (Manchester United) is ranked 10th with a salary of £50,740 per post.

9. N'Golo Kante (Chelsea) — £51,170 per post 

8. Roberto Firmino (Liverpool) – £55,900 per post

7. Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City) – £64,070 per post

6. Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City) – £66,220 per post

5. Raphaël Varane (Manchester United) – £73,530 per post

4. Thiago Silva (Chelsea) – £77,400 per post

3. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) – £189,200 per post

2. Paul Pogba (Manchester United) – £208,120 per post

1. Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo – £1,505,000 per post

Among mortals, he is regarded as a legend.

Wowsers. Imagine becoming a billionaire from a single Instagram post and then having £505,000 to play with.

With reports claiming that Ronaldo earns between £350,000 and £550,000 a week at Old Trafford, the Portuguese star could theoretically earn more from Instagram sponsorship deals.

Furthermore, according to Myprotein's research, if Ronaldo posted a single sponsored post every month, he would earn an incredible £18,060,000 every year.

However, the huge pay disparity between Ronaldo and the rest of the Premier League players sticks out, with Ronaldo making £1,296,880 more per post than Pogba.

Sure, the GOAT discussion and Ronaldo's place in it are debatable, but there's no doubting that he's the king of the celebrity game. Cristiano, you've done a fantastic job.
