How Champions League clubs rejected Ronaldo for as little as £80k-per-week

It has now emerged that some European top clubs turned down the opportunity to sign Cristiano Ronaldo for as low as £80,000 per week, Newspremises has gathered.

Super agent Jorge Mendes reportedly offered the former Manchester United forward to various clubs playing in the UEFA Champions League.

Ronaldo was said to be willing to slash his weekly wages to £80,000 per week but yet could not find a suitable club.


The Athletic reports that the Portugal goal machine was desperate to stay in Europe and play in the UEFA Champions League.

The Portugal superstar joined Al Nassr in December 2022 after failing to secure a move to a Champions League team.

The former Real Madrid and Juventus superstar, who is now the highest paid sports person alive in Saudi Arabia, felt he was disrespected by new manager Erik ten Hag at Manchester United.

But Ronaldo, after the completion of his transfer to Arab, claimed he had multiple offers on his table from Champions League clubs but chose to join Al Nassr.
