''MANCHESTER UNITED IS IN THE PAST'' RONALDO KILLS HOPE OF RETURNING TO FORMER CLUB AS HE SIGNS A STAGGERING NEW 5 YEAR DEAL WITH REAL MADRID
Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo has signed a staggering five-year deal with the Spanish giants which is worth almost twice as much as Gareth Bale will be earning in Spain.
Ronaldo is expected to earn a remarkable £15million a year after tax and before bonuses, or £288,000 a week, dwarfing Bale’s annual £8.3million in a new agreement
which will most definitely scuppers any immediate hope Manchester United have of persuading their former player to return
And he said Manchester United is in his past. Now that's a blow to the hierarchy at the Old trafford
And it is a further blow to David Moyes’s ambitions at United, with rumours throughout the summer that an attempt would be made to persuade Ronaldo to return to Old Trafford.
Only last year the player talked of being ‘sad’ at Madrid, and Bale’s arrival, breaking Ronaldo’s record transfer fee from United, was thought to have further damaged his ego.
However, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has gone to tremendous lengths to show Ronaldo that he is still the club’s priority player, and the pair appeared at a press conference on Sunday to announce the record deal.
Ronaldo is now believed to be the highest paid footballer in the world and his contract is worth £850,000 more annually than Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s deal with Paris Saint- Germain
Ronaldo was elated and expressed readiness to win more trophies for the Galaticos side
‘I’m really happy here. I just want to win trophies for this club. Manchester is in the past — I’ll be here five more years.
The contract is a clear indication that Ronaldo remains the main man at the Bernabeu despite Bale’s world-record £86m move from Tottenham Hotspur.
