The agent of Cristiano Ronaldo, Jorge Mendes, has revealed to Sky Sports Italia that Real Madrid have received an offer from an unnamed Chinese football club of €300m.
"From China they’ve offered €300 million to Real Madrid and more than €100m per year to the player [Ronaldo],” Mendes said on Thurdsay. “But money is not everything; the Spanish club is his life."
€100m per year contract
The revelation comes after former Manchester United and Manchester City striker Carlos Tévez signed for Shanghai Shenhua in the latest big-money Chinese deal, reportedly making him the world's best-paid footballer.
The €100m salary reportedly offered to Ronaldo would dwarf the €42m per year fee that Tevez will earn at Shanghai, while if Real Madrid decided to accept the offer from China, the €300m transfer would smash the world-record set by Man United's €105m signing of Paul Pogba in the summer.
