It might take a little time to get used to seeing Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in the Juventus stripes after 9 years of wearing the famous Real Madrid jersey. But it was probably easy for him to kame the move to Turin, considering the ridiculous numbers in his new contract with the Italian Champions. The figures behind his contract with Juve are as mind-boggling as you would expect.
In fact, it is rather hard to believe salaries go that high.
To put the deal he got into perspective the second best-paid player in Serie A is Higuain with a “measly” 9 million Euros per year, 3 times less than what CR7 is pocketing!
Ronaldo will be earning €576,923 per week – only.
Break that figure down and it becomes more clear just how astronomical it is.
Ron’s four-year deal equates to a total of €117,541,760.17.
That’s €31,000,000 a year
€2.448.725,88 a month.
€576,923 a week.
€82,417 a day.
€3,434 an hour.
€57.23 a minute.
€0.95 a second.
In other words, Ronaldo could take a two-hour nap and still earn €6.725,96.
No doubt he will be laughing all the way to the bank after signing on the dotted line but a new challenge faces the five-time Balon d’Or winner.
Prove he can be just as effective in Italy, and he might just overtake Messi in the greatest player of all time debate
