Real Madrid offer Cristiano Ronaldo £28.5m contract… but it's not enough

Real Madrid offer Cristiano Ronaldo £28.5m contract… but it's not enough
Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid are at a stand-off over his new contract
REAL MADRID have offered Cristiano Ronaldo a staggering £28.5m annual contract to snub Manchester United.
Ronaldo wants to leave Real Madrid over frustrations regarding tax fraud allegations in Spain, which he denies.
The striker is reportedly unhappy with how Real have failed to give him financial assurances over the issue.
Manchester United and PSG are said to be the two clubs capable of matching Ronaldo's enormous wage demands.
It was reported earlier this week that the Portugal international had asked for a £64m-a-season, five-year deal to remain in Madrid.


But Real have offered him a deal much lower than those demands - even though the figures are still eye-watering.
That is according to Spanish radio stations Cadena COPE.
They claim Real have lodged a £28.5m-a-year contract with Ronaldo's representatives.

That includes a fixed £22m per season, with the remaining £6.5m reserved for bonuses.
Ronaldo will be incentivised to continue his glittering career. the breakdown of those bonuses are as follows:
- £1.75m for winning the Champions League again
- £1.32m for a La Liga title win
- £880,000 for a Copa del Rey win
- £880,000 apiece for being named the Best FIFA men's player of the year
- £880,000 for winning the Ballon d'Or
- £423,000 for winning the la Liga golden boot
Real's proposal would likely be accepted by another other footballer on the planet.
But it may not be enough to keep Ronaldo.
That's because the deal still falls short of Lionel Messi's £1.76m-a-week contract at Barcelona.
Ronaldo is determined to be paid more than Messi - a desire that is fuelling his drive to quit the Bernabeu.
Real Madrid recently saw his ally Zinedine Zidane leave his post as Real manager - an act that reportedly hasn't gone down well with the player.

As for United, they are understood to have monitored Ronaldo's situation ever since he left Old Trafford for Real back in 2009.
Jose Mourinho would supposedly prefer to sign Gareth Bale this summer.
But if Ronaldo demands an exit then Real may have to hold on to the Welsh wizard, despite his poor injury record in Spain.
