The woes of Cristiano Ronaldo continues to drag on as he still seeks a move away from Manchester United. The 5 times Ballon D’or star according to report is willing to forgo 30% of his salary and that is an amount that transcends to a little over 150,000 pounds of his weekly wage.
Reports have claimed he’s been offered to Chelsea and Bayern Munich, who have both snubbed the chance, while Ronaldo isn’t willing to take advantage of a very lucrative offer from Saudi Arabia.
He’s also been offered to Atletico Madrid, but despite reports of manager Diego Simeone being seduced by the idea of adding Ronaldo to his ranks, CBS Sports reporter Ben Jacobs now claims the La Liga side see the signing of Ronaldo as ‘problematic’ and they are ‘simply not in a financial position to move’.
Jorge Mendes is making it clear to clubs put off by his wages that Cristiano Ronaldo is willing to take a significant pay cut, potentially as high as 30%.

There are also reports that Real Madrid aren’t interested in him as well. One unnamed Saudi Arabian club is said to have offered him a whooping 2 million pounds per week contract but obviously the offer has been rejected by Ronaldo and his agent. Champions league football is his target.
Let hope and see how things will evolve with time as there are still plenty of days on the transfer window.
