Real Madrid Offer World- Record €155m Deal To Keep Cristiano Ronaldo

:14 pm The Portuguese superstar
is in advanced negotiations
over a five-year contract
that will be the most
lucrative in the history of
football c_r....real9937820 Cristiano Ronaldo is close to
agreeing a new contract with
Real Madrid which will make him
the world’s highest-earning
footballer, this is according the
Goal.com. Madrid are in advanced talks
with Ronaldo’s representatives
over a deal totalling around
€155 million over five years, with
the Portuguese forward set to
earn €15m annually after tax in what will be the most lucrative
contract in the history of the
game. Ronaldo, who has scored 201
goals in just 199 games in his
four seasons at the Santiago
Bernabeu, raised alarm bells on
Thursday when he posted a
cryptic message on Twitter which read simply: “All the news about
my renewal with Real Madrid are
false.” Days earlier, however, he
revealed his intention to remain
at the Spanish side beyond his
current contract, which expires in 2015. After Portugal’s 1-0 win over
Russia in a World Cup qualifier
last week, Ronaldo said: “I
haven’t spoken to anyone yet,
[but] I know we will reach an
agreement on a new contract. The most important thing now is
the national team.” And he also
claimed his future has nothing to
do with the departure of coach
Jose Mourinho. “I am not worried
by what Mourinho does; I am concerned with Real Madrid and
my future,” he said in May. The pair’s relationship, once
excellent, deteriorated in recent
months following an angry
dispute over a tactical correction
made by Mourinho in a game
against Valencia in January. Ronaldo’s posture has changed
after his well-documented
‘sadness’ at the beginning of
last season, when he was
frustrated at what he perceived
to be a lack of public support from the club in the race for the
Ballon d’Or, a fall-out with
team-mate Marcelo and the
club’s apparent unwillingness to
discuss a new deal. Madrid signed Ronaldo from
Manchester United in a world-
record €94 million deal back in
the summer of 2009, following
Florentino Perez’s return to the
presidency at the capital club. He currently earns around €10m
annually after tax. When Ronaldo arrived, however,
the so-called ‘Beckham Law’,
which allowed foreigners who had
lived in Spain for less than 10
years and who earned above
€120,000 per annum to pay a lower tax rate of around 23 per
cent and not the usual 45%, was
still in force. David Beckham was
one of the first to take
advantage of the law after his
move from Manchester United in 2003. However, the Spanish
government has since scrapped
that initiative and a new deal
would see Ronaldo required to
pay 52% of his salary to the
taxman. Hence, Madrid will be faced with an annual outlay close
to €31m in order to pay the
Portuguese the net €15m he has
asked for. Madrid, however, are aware of
the importance of keeping
Cristiano. The capital club missed
out on Neymar recently, while
they look to be frustrated in
their pursuit of Dortmund duo Ilkay Gundogan and Robert
Lewandowski. Other previous
transfer targets, such as Sergio
Aguero and Radamel Falcao, will
not be arriving either, while
Gareth Bale is expensive and unwilling to force a move and
Edinson Cavani is considered
overpriced by the Madrid board.
Ronaldo’s renewal, therefore,
assumes even greater
importance. President Perez has already
revealed Real’s intention to
make the Portuguese the
cornerstone of the club’s next
sporting project. “I want to build
Real Madrid around Cristiano Ronaldo,” he said late last
month. “And I want Cristiano to
be the best-paid player in the
world.” Madrid are ready to meet
Ronaldo’s wage demands and
make the Portuguese a higher
earner than Lionel Messi, who
takes home around €13m before
bonuses at Barcelona, and Falcao, who will bring in €14m
annually at Monaco. Samuel
Eto’o earns €20m per year at
Anzhi Makhachkala, although the
Cameroonian is on just a three-
year deal and his total package will be surpassed by Ronaldo’s
Real contract. The one sticking point currently
is the player’s image rights.
Cristiano currently has a 60 per
cent share (of which he pays a
third to Jorge Mendes’ company
Gestifute), while the club keep 40%. The Portuguese is keen to
improve that ratio and his
recent tweet, as well as news
stories leaked to press over a
stalemate in negotiations, are
thought to be two tactics used in conjunction with Mendes in
order to apply pressure on the
club. However, both parties are
confident an agreement will be
reached in the coming weeks.
