Cristiano Ronaldo earns an eye-watering amount from his Nike contract – the details of which have now been revealed.
According to a leaked report published by Der Spiegel, Cristiano Ronaldo will earn a staggering €162million over a 10-year-period from Nike as per the terms of his deal with the global apparel giant.
The Portuguese superstar was reportedly a subject of tug of war between Adidas and Nike, before the latter succeeded in securing his services for a 10-year period starting 2016.
As per the leaked report, Ronaldo is the highest-paid athlete currently on Nike’s books, with the global sportswear brand paying the Portuguese a remarkable €16.2million per annum.
However, that is just the rate which Nike would have to pay the Portuguese come what may – as thanks to bonuses, the Portuguese was paid €4 million above and beyond his base pay in 2016 and 2017.
