Ronaldo turns down €300m move with €100m salary to China
Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent says the superstar rejected an offer from a Chinese Super League club that would have paid him €100 million per year.

Jorge Mendes confirmed to Sky Sports Italia in an interview released on Thursday night, that the unnamed club were willing to pay Real Madrid a transfer fee of €300 million.

“From China they’ve offered €300m to Real Madrid and more than €100m per year to the player,” Mendes said.

“But money is not everything; the Spanish club is his life.”

The €300m transfer fee would have nearly tripled the record €105m price that Manchester United paid Juventus for Paul Pogba in the summer.

Ronaldo’s proposed salary of €100m — or €1,923,077 per week — also would have blown away the €17,453,800 (€335,650 per week) he is reported to make at his current deal at Madrid.

Mendes was speaking in a taped segment from Dubai, where Ronaldo accepted the honour of best player at the Globe Soccer Awards.
