Just days after signing a contract extension with Real Madrid, superstar Cristiano Ronaldo now appears to have signed another major contract -- this time with his sponsor Nike. Ronaldo took part in the unveiling of his new signature cleats over the weekend where he described it as the "best contract of my career." He also suggested that his new deal with the sportswear company is "for life."

According to TMZ, the deal could be worth over $1 billion.

That's right. That's a ton of cash.

Ronaldo has been a member of the swoosh family since 2003 and along with Brazilian star Neymar, he's one of the faces of the company. The report also suggests exactly what Ronaldo stated on the video above -- that the duration of the deal is similar to NBA superstar LeBron James' lifetime pact.

It's been quite a week for CR7. On Monday, he signed a new contract extension with Real Madrid, and per Forbes, he's the highest paid athlete in the world.

Now that he struck new deal with Nike, this might help him solidify his name atop that list, eh?
