Piers Morgan one of just 57 people Cristiano Ronaldo follows on Twitter.. so who else is on Man Utd legend’s list?

PIERS MORGAN is one of just 57 people Cristiano Ronaldo follows on Twitter.

The legendary Portuguese has just completed a £12.8million transfer from Juventus to Manchester United and the TV presenter said he is more expensive than the superstar.

Superstar Jennifer Lopez is also one of the exclusive club.

Ex-Good Morning Britain host Morgan, 56, often discusses his relationship with the iconic 36-year-old.

The pair most famously linked up when Ronaldo sat down for an interview with Morgan in 2019.

Ronnie famously cried after being shown a video of his ‘alcoholic’ father Dinis who died, aged 52, when the ex-Real Madrid man was 20.

And the pair appear to have maintained contact with Morgan recently claiming Ronnie texted him after he became the highest Euros scorer ever this summer.

Back in December Morgan’s then-GMB co-host Susanna Reid claimed Ronaldo ‘ghosted’ him.

But while the level of contact they have remains unclear, the former Juve man still follows Morgan on Twitter and Instagram.

Pop sensation Justin Bieber is one of the 57 names

As is Barbadian icon Rihanna


While some Ronaldo fans may find the relationship baffling, the Portuguese – who has 93.9million Twitter followers – also follows some globally famous folk.

Pop sensations Jennifer Lopez, Justin Bieber and Rihanna make the list.

Rapper Lil Wayne and retro Spanish music star Enrique Iglesias also feature.

And Lady Gaga – who has 83.7m followers – completes the list of global music phenomenons.

As one of the finest sportsmen of all time, Ronnie of course follows several fellow athletes.

Iron Mike Tyson, ex-NFL receiver Chad Ochocinco Johnson, former basketball star Dwyane Wade and snowboarder Shaun White are some of the American contingent.


Lamar Odom, Mark Sanchez, Floyd Mayweather and Odell Beckham Jr also got the nod.

And as well as several companies with whom Ronnie is likely linked, there are former team-mates and some well-known European stars.

Ex-Man Utd buddy Rio Ferdinand is in.

The pundit recently backed Ronaldo to take penalties off Bruno Fernandes at United.

Portuguese centre-back Pepe features – who Ronaldo played with for Los Blancos and the national team.

And Wolves ace Joao Moutinho, Everton outcast James Rodriguez, Radamel Falcao and Fabio Coentrao also make the cut.
