Ronaldo’s Agent Teases Manchester United: CR7 Will Cost 1 Billion Euros

Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes has revealed that it will take close to €1bn to sign him from Real Madrid.

“The price of his clause is €1,000m (€1bn). I’m sure he’s going to beat his personal record if there’s no physical problem.

“Nothing is impossible for Cristiano and he will continue to evolve and improve until he retires. Note that Cristiano is a winger, not a striker, and his numbers are outrageous. He plays very far from goal and has to make a great effort to reach the penalty area.

“So everything he has achieved has more merit. Everyone can see what he’s like; phenomenal.”

Mendes’ words comes a day after he had said that his client will stay in Madrid for the remainder of his career after certain reports linked the 29-year old with a return to his former club Manchester United. So, it’s more like saying, “Stay away from my client, you can’t afford him.”

Manchester United fans even tried to woo back their former star with a “Come home Ronaldo- United Reel” banner a few weeks ago. The Portuguese international represented Manchester United 290 times and scored 117 goals after joining from Sporting Lisbon in 2003. He lifted the Ballon d’Or award in 2008 and moved to the Bernabeu for a record fee in 2009. Since then, he has appeared in 257 games for the galacticos, and has scored an amazing 269 goals. Last season, he lifted the Ballon d’Or award for the second time in his career and in the process, he broke Lionel Messi’s 4-year domination over the prestigious award.

He signed a new 5-year bumper contract last season which that will keep him at the club until 2018, his annual income is close to €17 m.

Ronaldo has been in terrific form off-late after scoring an astonishing three hat tricks in his last four La Liga games! However, a fee of €1bn is definitely exaggerated, even by Ronaldo’s standards. He is at the peak of his powers at present and it will be next to impossible for any club to sign him, even more so when he is playing for a football powerhouse like Real Madrid.
