Cristiano Ronaldo’s Eyewatering Contract with the Saudi Giants
Cristiano Ronaldo has agreed to a historic deal worth an astonishing €200 million per year, including commercial deals. This is the biggest salary ever in football and will run until 2025. This deal solidifies Ronaldo’s status as one of the topmost earning athletes in the world and is a testament to his incredible talent and marketability.
The commercial deals included in the contract are also a significant factor in the overall value of the contract. Ronaldo has a massive global following and is one of the most recognizable athletes in the world. His endorsement deals and partnerships with major brands are a testament to his marketability and the impact he has on consumer behavior.
The former Juve man’s salary dwarfs that of any other footballer, with the next highest earning player Kylian Mbappe, earning less than half of what Ronaldo will be earning per year. The 38-year-old has decided to join Al Nassr after a shock interview with British Journalist Piers Morgan resulted in his contract with Manchester United being terminated mutually during the World Cup.
While major sources believed that the superstar would not leave Europe, the number of teams that could support his wages were negligible. This resulted in his move to Saudi, a league famous for offering huge contracts to Europian stars in the twilight of their careers. Ronaldo subsequently broke his long-standing contract with super agent Jorge Mendes in the wake of the interview debacle.
