Bernabeu forward not so unhappy now.
Cristiano Ronaldo has settled terms with Real Madrid over a new contract.
Terra says negotiations have reached a positive conclusion which will see Ronaldo extend his deal from 2015 to 2017 and see his wages jump from €10 million-a-year to €15 million-a-year.
So that should put a smile back on the Bernabeu star’s face. The Real Madrid attacker had apparently been unhappy for some weeks and some had debated as to the reasons behind his demeanour and if those concerns were financially based, an issue that has arisen following the change in tax policy in Spain, then this pay hike should well appease the 27 year old.
This deal represents a move from £153k a week to £230k a week so is a fairly huge jump but clearly one the Spanish giants felt they had to entertain in order to keep their prized asset happy, especially as there was a great deal of speculated interest in the Portuguese international from the likes of PSG and Man City.
