Cristiano Ronaldo has made history after inking a deal with the Saudi Arabian Pro League club Al-Nassr, making him the highest-paid soccer player of all time. According to reports, the new contract will give him an annual paycheck of roughly $200 million.
After leaving Manchester United, the superstar joined Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, and will be adding a massive amount of money to his already impressive wealth which he has earned from his triumphs both on and off the field. Ronaldo has already earned an astounding $400,000 per week while with Manchester United, but his new contract will see him make a whopping $1 million per week.
ESPN reported that Cristiano Ronaldo made history in 2020 by becoming the first soccer player ever to reach $1 billion in career earnings. The Portuguese decided to return to Manchester United in 2021 but had to leave the club before the FIFA World Cup 2022 following a disagreement with the club’s administration.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s salary in Al-Nassr
Cristiano Ronaldo agreed to a groundbreaking agreement of a staggering $223.8 million per year, the most noteworthy of its kind in the realm of soccer. When it is broken down, this implies he will be paid $13.94 million each month, $3.2 million every week, $633,333 every day, $26,389 per hour, $439 per minute, and $7.3 per second.
To put this into point of view, when he played for Manchester United, his compensation was $24.7 million every year, equating to roughly $473,000 every week. Subsequently, in one day, he earns more than he used to in one week at Old Trafford.
Ronaldo’s ties to Manchester United were cut off following some controversial remarks he made on a television show prior to the start of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Not only did he talk about issues with United’s coach Erik ten Hag, but he also publicly disparaged the team in an interview with British talk show presenter Piers Morgan, resulting in the termination of his agreement in England.
