According to Goal.com, Real Madrid are set to offer Cristiano Ronaldo a world-record £132 million deal to persuade the winger to snub a move to former team Manchester United and stay at the Bernabeu.
Madrid are set to offer Ronaldo a £132 million, resulting in the Portuguese ace pocketing £12.8 million annually on a five-year deal. The quick-footed attacker’s current deal at the club, which is worth £8.5 million-a-year, expires in 2015 but if he agreed a new deal it would likely keep him in Spain until he retires.
The winger has been linked with a move away from the Madrid and after putting his Spanish villa up for sale as well as tweeting he hadn’t signed a new deal at the club, all the signs were pointing to a possible departure from Spain for pastures new.
Real Madrid President Florentino Perez has denied reports Ronaldo is leaving and has even gone as far as saying he wants give Ronaldo a world-breaking deal:
“I want to build Real Madrid around Cristiano Ronaldo. And I want Cristiano to be the best-paid player in the world.”
Ronaldo has scored 201 goals in 199 games since joining from Manchester United four years ago and despite costing the club £80 million, Ronaldo has won just one league title and no European trophies.
Ronaldo won several league titles at his time at Old Trafford as well as picking up The Player’s player of the Year, The Young Player of The Year award and the Ballon d’Or. The news that Ronaldo is set be offered a new contract with such impressive figures will be a huge blow to the likes Manchester United and big spenders AS Monaco.
