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.
