It is reported that a club from Saudi Arabia is willing to offer Manchester United 30 million euros for the Portuguese superstar. They are trying to convince the 37-year-old player with a huge salary of 250 million euros, divided over two seasons. The remaining 20 million will be brokered by Ronaldo’s agent, Jorges Mendes.

At Manchester United, Ronaldo currently receives around 36 million euros a year. So if he accepts the outrageous offer from the Saudi Arabian Club, he will be the highest paid player in the world when he surpasses Paris Saint Germain’s Kylian Mbappe, who receives around 62 million euros a year. .
