Just last week, the rumor spreading over has just been confirmed officially true; the Portuguese professional footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has just accepted the offer of joining the Saudi club Al Nassr for a period of two and a half years at a whopping amount of 500 million Euro.
The agreement, according to reports, covers all financial perks associated with his image being used in team advertisements as well as a signing bonus.
By a wide margin, Cristiano is now the highest-paid athlete in the world according to the deal, which is worth $535 million in US dollars.
An estimated amount of $210 million per season will be allocated to Cristiano Ronaldo which will eventually kickstart from the dawn of the new year.
Largest Sports Contracts Of All Time
Ronaldo’s contract signed happens to be the second-largest in the history of sports in terms of total value.
But still Lionel Messi still remains the soccer player who has the highest amount of contract deals dates back to 2017 to 2021 where he perated under a 4-year, for a $674 million deal.
Ronaldo’s contract did break the record for the highest average annual salary at $210 million. Lionel Messi received an average annual wage of $168.5 million as part of the four-year, $674 million Barcelona contract.
Also, as a result of a 10-years $503 million deal Patrick Mahomes’ at $41.9 million signed with the Kansas City Chiefs, he happens to be the next-largest soccer player with such earnings per season.
Surprisingly, Cristiano Ronaldo’s new contract is slightly better than had been previously rumored. The per-season average was allegedly $207 million last week when we reported on this hypothetical deal.
Saudi Professional League participant Al Nassr. During a season, teams play 30 games. Cristiano will essentially receive $7 million FOR EVERY GAME.
Some other way to put the scale of this deal into perspective is as follows:
Cristiano Ronaldo will surpass Michael Jordan’s total NBA career earnings in a little more than 5 and a half months if his valuation of $210 million is accurate.
- He’ll make $17.5 million per month at $210 million.
- When valued at $210 million, he will make $575,000 every day.
The contract should eventually push Cristiano’s net worth past Messi’s, as we foresaw in our earlier coverage, which is maybe of utmost importance. Messi has a net worth of $600 million, compared to Cristiano Ronaldo’s $500 million, according to our current estimates.
Oddly enough, Lionel Messi just completed a record-breaking new contract in a different method. With Miami FC, Messi recently inked the highest-paying MLS contract in league history.
