Engadget revealed that Facebook is in talks with Los Angeles-based Creative Artists Agency for an original documentary TV show on Ronaldo that will follow the football star's life on and off the field.

The soccer superstar is in talks with Facebook over creating and starring in a docu-series about his life, Variety's Todd Spangler and Andrew Wallenstein reported Thursday, citing multiple sources.

Matador Content, Dirty Robber and Religion of Sports, the company of which Brady is a co-founder, would produce Ronaldo's Facebook series, earning the New England Patriots quarterback another credit in the entertainment world. According to Variety, his salary for the 13-episode Facebook series could reach $10 million.

Trump vowed that he'll be prepared for the July 16 summit in Finland, saying "I've been preparing for this stuff my whole life". Trump said Kennedy had made a decision to leave the High Court because he knew the president would pick a stellar replacement.

Ronaldo was already working on a scripted drama for Facebook Watch about an all-girls soccer team in upstate NY earlier this year.

Facebook declined to comment. He has just returned from the World Cup, where he starred for Portugal, and there is speculation that he could leave Real Madrid for Italian side Juventus.

Ronaldo, who is now Facebook's most popular athlete with more than 120 million followers, is already working with the social network on another project.
