Ronaldo will become the highest-earner in sport

4 December, 2022

Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly sensationally agreed a bumper £173 million-a-year contract with Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia, which would make him the highest earner in sport.

The 37-year-old had his Manchester United contract terminated earlier this month, following a tumultuous relationship with club chiefs that only worsened when he made a number of controversial statements in a TV interview with Piers Morgan.

And now Ronaldo is said to have agreed a two-and-a-half year deal with Al Nassr - worth an eye-watering £173m-per-year - that will see him play until the age of 40, according to Spanish newspaper outlet Marca.

If he does complete the move, Ronaldo’s eye-watering salary would make him the highest-earning person in sport, according to Forbes.
