Lack of football activities due to Coronavirus outbreak will make the Juve tallisman Cristiano Ronaldo stand to lose out on €9 million with Juventus set to be given the green light to cut player wages by up to 30 per cent.
Reports in Spain claim Serie A sides are on the bring of slashing player wages by between 20 and 30 per cent due to the coronavirus pandemic. Should that happen, Ronaldo would lose around €9m in future wages, say Mundo Deportivo.
The Portuguese star, 35, boasts a net worth of around €390m, according to Forbes.That tally is in no small part down to his monster €30m-a-year wages at Juventus – around €550,000 per week.
On top of that, Ronaldo has an €835million lifetime deal with Nike. Ronaldo is comfortably the world’s most marketable player, earning more in endorsement deals than both Lionel Messi and Neymar.
But even still, the pay-cut will hit Ronaldo hard – as well as players across Italy.
Ever since Italy went into lockdown due to Covid-19, Ronaldo has sought refuge on his home island of Madeira.
