Bernabeu side to hand Portuguese international £330k a week deal.
The world’s most expensive player ever Cristiano Ronaldo [Manchester United to Real Madrid for £80million], with only two years remaining on his current contract, has been offered a whole range of clubs to spend the 2013/14 season with.
First, Real Madrid are set to offer the Portuguese star £330,000-a-week to make him the highest paid footballer in the world as they pursue efforts to keep their best player at the Bernabeu this year according to the Independent. The European giants are also looking to bring one of the brightest prospects in the Premier League right now, Gareth Bale, to the Spanish capital.
“Ronaldo wants to retire at Real Madrid, and we want him to retire here, just like Zidane and so many other great players did,” Club president Florentino Perez told reporters.
“You can be absolutely certain that Cristiano will retire at Real Madrid.”
His second option, Ligue 1 newcomers, AS Monaco.The French big spenders have recently spent £110million on Falcao, Rodriguez and Moutinho in a desperate attempt to fight for the Ligue 1 crown next season. Monaco now look poised to offer Real Madrid an astounding £85million for the former Ballon D’or winner, funded by Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev.
If Cristiano opts to move to France then he will earn a staggering €20million per year, equal to the offer tabled by his current club. They hope this deal will be enough for the forward who feels under-appreciated at Madrid,after fans booed the star in a previous El Clásico.
The third alledged offer for the global super star is from Manchester City who look to rekindle a title push under new manager Manuel Pellgrini. It is unlikely that the indemand winger will accept this option due to various reasons: one being that he played for bitter rivals Manchester United previously, the other being that the money offer by the Premier League club is not up to the previous two offers.
If he makes his return to the Premier League to move to the Etihad Stadium then he will earn £300,000-a-week, before tax. Bonuses are likely to be larger in Spain than with the Sky Blues too, almost ruling out the option immediately – from a financial perspective.
The fourth, and final, reported offer for the 28 year-old is from previous owners Manchester United who hope to bring the attacker back with an £80million bid. Although the wages may be lowered with the Red Devils, it is very clear that Cristiano has a lot of love for the Manchester club after his six year spell at the club, under Sir Alex Ferguson.
His future is unclear, but what we do know is wherever he decides to go, he will remain in the top two best players in the world.
