$300M per year for Cristiano Ronaldo!

After his recent departure from Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo received a monstrous offer of 173 million pounds (279M$ Canadian) per year from the Saudi club Al Nassr.

This proposal offers the new free agent the possibility of becoming the highest paid sportsman in the history of sport.
