Cristiano Ronaldo had been long speculated with a move away from Real Madrid, and his departure was finally confirmed yesterday. Juventus announced the signing of Portuguese winger in a massive €112m deal.
The five-time Balon d’Or winner will earn a whooping €30m every year, which amounts to €120m over the course of his four-year contract.
With his salary at €30m a year, Ronaldo will make a massive €2.5m a month.
If we break it down further to weeks and days, the figures become even more astonishing.
Cristiano Ronaldo will be making €625,000 in wages per week. If this doesn’t put the salary in perspective, consider this – The Portuguese forward is set to pocket €89,285 a day, €3,720 an hour, €62 every minute, and €1.03 per second.
With such massive numbers, Cristiano Ronaldo has ensured he remains one of the highest-paid athletes in the game.
Ronaldo won four Champions League titles, two La Liga titles and various other domestic, continental and inter-continental honours with Real Madrid. As his departure was announced, his Real Madrid teammates, fans, and footballing legends alike took to social media to pay tribute to the Portuguese winger.
Cristiano Ronaldo joined Real Madrid in 2009 from Manchester United in the-then world record transfer deal. He was pinned to return to Old Trafford after he seemingly hinted at his transfer after the Champions League victory in May this year. However, some reports suggest that the Premier League turned down the offer to sign him.
