Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who is the present Ballon d’or winner after he got the award earlier this month, could have made a £257m transfer to an unnamed Chinese club according to his agent Jorge Mendes after the said club approached Real Madrid.

He further stated that the 31-year-old Portugal captain had no interest in the deal, which included an £85m annual salary (around £1.6m per week).

Speaking on his client Ronaldo, who revealed that he could play for another 10 years in November after signing a new deal with Madrid until June 2021, in a chat with Sky Italia. Mendes said: “The Chinese market is a new market. They can buy a lot of players, but it is impossible to go for Ronaldo.”

“Cristiano is the best player in the world and best ever. It is normal to have some offers.

“From China, they’ve offered 300m euros (£257m) to Real Madrid and more than 100m euros per year to the player.
“But money is not everything. The Spanish club [Real] is his life.” he concluded.
