Cristiano Ronaldo is a Portuguese national men’s football team captain and former Manchester United legend who recently signed for Al-Nassr football club of Saudi Arabia in a deal that has come to being the most expensive contract for a football player in the world.
In this article, Nyscinfo breaks down Ronaldo’s weekly wages at Al-Nassr per seconds, minutes, hour and day, to enable football fans around the world know how much their ‘GOAT’ currently earns.
Rejoining Manchester United From Juventus
Ronaldo joined Manchester United in the summer of 2021 from Italian Serie A side Juventus in a deal thought to be worth £12.86million pounds, having left Manchester United to sign for Real Madrid in 2008.
After playing less under current manager Erik Ten Haag, Ronaldo stunned the United fan base in an explosive interview with journalist Piers Morgan, revealing damaging information that the club wouldn’t want in the ears of the public. Following this interview, multiple reports claimed that the English club was ready to terminate Ronaldo’s contract, with the official announcement of the end to his contractual relationship with the club coming in December of 2022 while the five times Balon d’Or winner was playing for Portugal at the Qatar World Cup.
How Much Is Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr Salary?
Al-Nassr would reportedly pay Ronaldo a staggering £172 million year, according to Saudi Arabia’s state-owned TV Al Ekhbariya. Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, who asserts that the footballer’s income is near to €200m (£177m) per year, or the equivalent of £3.3m per week, supports this estimate.
Ronaldo will receive a salary of $75 million (£62 million), according to CBS Sports, for his work with Al-Nassr. The remainder will be covered by image rights and business arrangements, and the former Real Madrid player is expected to be involved in the nation’s 2030 World Cup campaign.
Al-Nassr has not officially confirmed the duration of Ronaldo’s contract, although it is assumed that he has signed a two and a half year deal. According to rumors, he has a contract that lasts until June 2025, meaning he will play for the Saudi team until he turns 40. In February, the seasoned forward turns 38.
Despite the possibility that Ronaldo’s playing days are over at that time, his relationship with Saudi Arabia may endure for many years to come, especially given his involvement in the country’s bid to host the 2030 World Cup. Ironically, Portugal will be Saudi Arabia’s toughest competition at that competition.
With Egypt and Greece, the Saudis are anticipated to submit an inter-confederation bid to co-host the World Cup. The tournament’s candidacy from UEFA will be led by Portugal, Spain, and Ukraine, with the 2026 edition taking place in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
Thanks to his enormous contract with Al-Nassr, Ronaldo is now regarded as the highest-paid football player in history.
His former Old Trafford contract at £500,000 per week made him the highest-paid player in the Premier League, putting the transfer into perspective.
