The Portuguese player earns money, even when he is asleep
After his shock departure from Manchester United, the football world was shaken by the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldoat Al-Nassr, but beyond the reputation of the Saudi Arabian club, it was the exorbitant salary the player was offered that caught the eye.
The Asian side, who have won the Saudi Pro League nine times, spared no expense in securing the services of one of the greatest players in history.
Ronaldo has won five Ballon d’Ors, five UEFA Champions League titles, and has tasted glory on the international stage too, lifting one European Championship and one UEFA Nations League with Portugal.
The 38-year-old striker is currently the top scorer in the history of football.
Since his debut with Sporting Lisbon and his time at several of the world’s top clubs, including Real Madrid, Manchester United and Juventus, not to mention his time with the national team, he has accumulated more than 800 goals.
According to estimates, the Portuguese’s contract with Al-Nassr, which was made public at the end of December 2022, was for an estimated 200 million dollars a year for two seasons.
If this figure is broken down by day, CR7 will earn 548,000 dollars every 24 hours and more than 22,000 dollars every 60 minutes.
This confirms him as the highest paid player in the world, despite being ever closer to retirement and far below the level of Kylian Mbappe.
If we compare his salary with the Portuguese player’s estimated value of 20 million, according to the Transfermarkt portal, CR7 will be paid 10 times his estimated value per year.
So far, the player has performed well for Al-Nassr, with 8 goals and 2 assists in 6 games. Those numbers earned him the player of the month in the Arab country.
