Cristiano Ronaldo will receive a salary of 200 million euros/year when he officially joins Saudi Arabia’s Al Nassr club.
An exclusive source from Marca said that Ronaldo had agreed to an offer of 200 million euros per year that Al Nassr sent.
It is expected that after the end of the 2022 World Cup, the Portuguese striker will fly to Saudi Arabia to sign a contract with a term of 2 and a half years.
Ronaldo’s salary of 200 million euros/year includes salary, bonuses and advertising deals.
If the contract is officially signed, Cristiano Ronaldo will become the highest-paid player in the history of world football.
CR7 is currently a free agent after being terminated by MU last week.
In the second period with the Red Devils, Ronaldo was quite disappointed because the team’s performance went down. This season, he lost his official position in attack due to a decline in form.
Before the day to focus on the national team, the 37-year-old striker created a scandal with an interview criticizing MU, the leadership team as well as head coach Erik ten Hag.
The incident led to the decision of MU to “purge” Ronaldo before the contract term. Both sides agreed not to sue, as well as demand compensation.
Al Nassr is a club rich in tradition in the Saudi Arabia league. The team is currently ranked 2nd in the table and is led by coach Rudi Garcia (French).
In the current Al Nassr composition, there are two famous members who have played at a high level in Europe, goalkeeper David Ospina (Colombia) and midfielder Alvaro Gonzalez (Spain).
