If the departure of the Portuguese remains to be confirmed, Goal looks at the amount of this potential transaction to his courtiers…
It is a title that has shocked the whole of Spain. The daily sports Portuguese A Bola was launched on Friday morning that Cristiano Ronaldo wanted to leave the Spanish league after the charges of tax evasion of which he is the object. A decision is “irreversible” according to the media, little customary information wacky. CR7 can he really leave Spain ? And most importantly, how much is it worth today ?
RUMOR – Cristiano Ronaldo has asked to leave Real Madrid
After a brilliant season and concluded by a fourth rite personnel in the champions League – the third one with Real Madrid – Cristiano Ronaldo has justified his status as a Golden Ball. He has also won the prestigious award last December, after having started the season smoothly. And on the last few months, its important purposes in the great battles of the champions League have remained in the minds. The beginning of the summer break comes to break the good dynamics of the Portuguese. The parquet of Madrid has filed a complaint accusing the superstar of the Real, to have concealed an amount of 14.7 million euros.
The clause of the departure of Ronaldo is now set at one billion euros after the contract extension of Portuguese in November last year. This agreement was supposed to allow the Real to maintain its star until 2021, although the player has said it was not his last contract. This figure represents nearly 10 times more than the amount paid by Manchester United to Juventus to offer Paul Pogba last summer, while French was becoming the most expensive transfer in football history. Ronaldo has 32 years old, and its real value remains to be determined depending on the offers that will come, but it is obviously much lower than what it could still represent a few years ago, despite performance still stratospheric (10 goals from the quarter-finals of the champions League this season). And despite the marketing potential that it represents.
A Bola had indicated a week ago that a club had offered 180 million euros for Ronaldo. This is a more realistic figure, even if Florentino Perez will demand a higher sum for the best striker in the history of Real Madrid. Manchester United is part of the clubs that have the financial muscle to recruit Ronaldo, as the Portuguese keeps one feeling particular to the club that exploded on the european scene, but his relationship with Jose Mourinho are cool.
The Real, for its part, remains quiet for the moment. In Europe or elsewhere (from China have already proposed a bridge of gold), Cristiano Ronaldo will anyway find an agreement with its leaders to see the door open…
