In 2009 Real Madrid coughed up 80 million pounds to buy football legend, Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United. Today CR7 is laughing all the way to the bank as he has multiplied his value to one billion British pounds.
That’s right, the 29 year-old footballer has a one billion pound release clause in his contract. This coming from his agent, Jorge Mendes in a word to the BBC.
“Cristano Ronaldo? One billion. His buyout clause is one billion. If, for any reason, the club decide to sell him tomorrow for 300 million, someone will pay,” Jorge said.
He also acknowledged that Ronaldo had a soft spot for Manchester United fans, being with the club for six years. But continued to assert that the Madeiran footballer will finish off his career at Real Madrid.
