Portuguese winger demands huge wages or he will leave for Manchester United.
Cristiano Ronaldo has shocked the Real Madrid board by demanding a massive £32m a year wage deal to stay at the La Liga club, otherwise he will leave for Manchester United.
The 28-year old recently rejected a new contract extension from Florentino Perez, and The Sun have reported that if this demand is not met, then he will ask to leave the club for former side Manchester United.
The Sun also breaks down the pay scale of this mammoth deal, which would include £450k a week wages, plus 100 percent of his image rights, which could amount to £15m a year, making him the highest paid footballer in the world.
Unless his demands are met, the Portugal international will seek a move away from Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, and he is well aware that he will have his pick of clubs able to afford his astronomical fee – with the side he left Real Madrid for, Manchester United, amongst those likely to be interested.
Ronaldo still has another two years left on his current £200,000 per week deal with the los Meringues.
The fact that he has scored 201 goals in 199 appearances for Real Madrid is likely a major aid for Ronaldo in his negotiations, whether with Real Madrid or otherwise.
