PORTO - Real Madrid and Portugal football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly presented Jorge Mendes, a phenomenal gift for the football agent's wedding on Sunday - A Greek island.

Mendes, 49, wed his partner Sandra in Porto. Known as a super agent, the wheeler dealer represents the sport's biggest names like Jose Mourinho, Angel Di Maria, Radamel Falcao, James Rodriguez and Ronaldo, who was his best man at the wedding.

Ronaldo, who is fiercely loyal to Mendes, bought an island in Greece for his long-time confidant, according to Portuguese media source Move Noticias.

Greece has a number of its islands up for sale as a result of its crippling debts and Move Noticias said the reigning Ballon d'Or holder took advantage, with the likely price of the purchase ranging from €3 million (S$4.5 million) to €50 million. 

About 400 guests will attend the Mendes wedding - including the likes of Real Madrid stars Fabio Coentrao and Pepe.
