If Cristiano Ronaldo joins the Saudi club of Al-Nassr, he would take first place in the ranking of the highest paid sportsmen in the world, of which here is the provisional Top 10.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s adventure at Manchester United has come to an end for the second time. The return of the five-time Portuguese Ballon d’Or won’t last long on the side of Old Trafford, who terminated his contract with the Red Devils only a year and a half after his comeback. Looking for a new club CR7 would be about to leave the very high level to go earn the millions on the side of the Saudi championship.
In Saudi Arabia, the Al Nassr club dreams of offering the Lusitanian’s services and would be ready to pay a high price for it. Very, very strong even since many media now indicate that a monstrous contract of 200 million per year awaits him. Enough to break all the records at this level and easily pass the top of the highest paid athletes in the world.
Football and basketball in front
With such a salary, Cristiano Ronaldo would therefore take first place in the rankings and leave Lionel Messi, for the moment in the lead, far behind him. Behind the two footballers, LeBron James tumbles into third position to represent basketball. He is not the only one since he is followed respectively by Steph Curry and Kevin Durant who completes this Top 5 of great sporting as well as monetary value.
