Manchester United striker, Cristiano Ronaldo who has been awol from his club’s pre season friendlies has been offered an eye watering £250 million to quit Old Trafford by an unnamed Saudi Arabian club.
United on Friday followed up their impressive 4-0 win over Premier League rivals Liverpool on Monday in their first pre season friendly with a 4-1 win against Australian side Melbourne Victory both without Ronaldo.
Ronaldo’s reason for not joining up with his teammates has been said to be personal as he battles family issues albeit the idea of a paycut the players were sold is said to sadden the five-time FIFA Player of the Year winner.
CNN Portugal reports on Friday that an unnamed Middle East club has offered the 37-year-old an eye-watering amount of cash to join them. The club is said to be Saudi Arabian.
The club would not only pay United a transfer fee of around £25m to sign Ronaldo but they would offer him a salary in the region of £105m-per-season over two years.
The lucrative package also includes £20m for Ronaldo’s representative Jorge Mendes.
United paid Juventus an initial £12.85m to bring Ronaldo back to Old Trafford last summer, with the player signing a two-year contract with the option of a third.
The Saudi offer arrives after Ronaldo requested United listen to offers for him last month.
