Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo for most of the season and they are preparing a mammoth offer for him with the hope of hijacking his move to back to Manchester United.
According to ‘L’Equipe’, PSG will offer Real Madrid €100m for the striker and that the French Champions will offer a salary that would make him the second best paid footballer in the world, only behind Samuel Et’oo.
Reportedly, PSG are offering Ronaldo 18 million euros after tax per season. That is net. With Frances’s top tex rate at 75%, that means PSG are willing to pay Ronaldo around €68m A YEAR.
If Ronaldo did move to PSG, and he signed a five-year deal with the French side, that would mean that PSG would be investing €440m over five-years in Ronaldo. A staggeringly amount of money.
An offe this outlandish shows what the top clubs in Europe think of Uefa’s Financial Fair Play Rules. No club can afford to spend an average of €88m per year, for five years, on one player and still be profitable.
