$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.

However, according to information delivered by SunSport, Ronaldo would have declined this proposal because he still wants to play in the Champions League. He would have spit on this mountain of cash!

Ronaldo has also revealed his refusal to join a team in Saudi Arabia, which offered him 3 million pounds per week, last summer. We can therefore certify that there is not only money that motivates the 37-year-old star.

No matter. For now, Cristiano Ronaldo’s priority was to attend the FIFA World Cup in Qatar with Portugal.
