After winning La Liga, Cristiano the superstar is still enjoying the same amount of attention as the rest of the players in the club.
He’s still the star, but now he’s also the face of the club and he’s still able to make money with the help of a lucrative endorsement deal.
Real Madrid is a big-time global brand and Ronaldo is the face, but his salary is far lower than he was in 2012.
In the summer of 2016, Real Madrid paid a whopping €50 million to bring Ronaldo back to the club, but he has since returned to his former club with no guarantees that he’ll be back.
He has now won five league titles, two Champions Leagues and two Copa del Rey titles, but that doesn’t mean that the money he earned from the deal was enough to pay off the huge debt he owed the club back in 2012, which was estimated at €80 million.
That debt had to be paid off at some point in the future, and Ronaldo was still owed a further €30 million for the last two years of his contract, making it impossible for him to pay it off.
But Ronaldo did manage to stay in Madrid with a contract that expires in 2019, and now that the deal has expired, it’s unclear if he will be able to remain with the club anymore.
In order to stay with Real Madrid, he’ll have to sign a new contract, which is what he wants to do, but with the way things are going with Real, he may have to accept a shorter one.
Cristiano is a star, and his salary was a big part of the reason why he won five titles, and he should have had a bigger salary.
It’s been a great career for the Spanish superstar and the fact that he’s been able to play for Real is the best thing that can happen to him.
