The eleven-year wait came to an end, Manchester United have secured Cristiano Ronaldo's return aiming to get back to glory days in the 2021-2022 season. It seems like the Portuguese star was eager for his second spell in England as well, as he took a significant pay cut from his Juventus salary.
Ronaldo, who left Old Trafford in 2009 to join Real Madrid, arrives in Manchester with much more experience under his belt and is full of ambition to keep on chasing titles.
At 36, Cristiano might be facing the last steps of his career. That explains why his transfer fee this time wasn't as high as it was eleven years ago, when he left to the La Liga giants for a record-breaking deal. He will receive, however, a mind-blowing wage.
Cristiano Ronaldo's contract with Manchester United
The Premier League doesn't lack in renowned players at all, but Cristiano is arguably the biggest name the English top-flight has right now. Therefore, he will reportedly become the league's top earner.
According to Goal, Cristiano Ronaldo would make around $27 million per season in a two-year deal with Manchester United. That would be $7 million less than what he earned at Juventus.
How much does Cristiano Ronaldo make a week?
Considering Cristiano's $27 million annual salary, he would earn $2,25 million per month. That would make it nearly $560,000 per week, or $80,000 if we are talking on a daily basis.
Ronaldo, who will be the Premier League's highest-paid player according to the Daily Mail, would make $3,333 per hour, or $55,55 a minute. Even at 36 years of age, Cristiano Ronaldo remains one of the most dominating players in the game.
Therefore, he deserves every single penny he receives in his lucrative deal. Cristiano was willing to earn less than what he made at Juve as long as he returned to his former club, hoping to get back to successful times.
