Cristiano Ronaldo Rumors: Real Madrid Offered Contract of Over $38M a Year


There have been rumors mulling since last year that soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo could be on his way out from Real Madrid. However, the club reportedly has offered the 33-year-old a new contract where his earnings rise to over $38 million a year.

From Bleacher Report:
Ronaldo wants an increase on the wages in his deal so his pay is closer to that of rivals Lionel Messi and Neymar. Journalist Manolo Lama told Cadena Cope's El Partidazo programme that a new offer has been made (h/t AS).

The new deal is said to comprise a basic annual wage of €25 million (£21.9 million), plus a further €7.5 million (£6.5 million) in add-ons.

AS showed how the deal would break down: "€2 million for winning the Champions League, €1.5 million for La Liga, €1 million for the Copa del Rey, €1 million each for the Ballon d'Or and Fifa's The Best Player prize and €500,000 for the Trofeo Pichichi, with another €500,000 tied into an appearances target."
Ronaldo has shown unhappiness with Real Madrid, with reports circulating that he is already leaving. There are several reports of clubs he has in mind of playing for, as well updates about his relationship with Real Madrid.




Ronaldo currently has three years remaining on his current contract. He could be convinced on staying with the club if they manage to bring Neymar to team up with him.
