To continue having the superstar Cristiano Ronaldo playing for Madrid, it is looking like they will have to shell out £400,000 ($645,000) weekly. Do you think keeping him on Real Madrid is worth the price or should they let him try to get bought out by another team?


Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo wants to become the first footballer to earn £400,000 a week, according to an ESPN source.

Because of Spain’s punitive tax laws, Ronaldo would need to break through the £400,000-a-week barrier for a big pay rise to take effect.

As Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain look on with interest, negotiations to secure Ronaldo’s future at the Bernabeu have got under way.
