New Book Reveals Just How Much Cristiano Ronaldo Charges For Half A Day's Work

New Book Reveals Just How Much Cristiano Ronaldo Charges For Half A Day's Work

Have you ever wondered how much it would cost to hire Cristiano Ronaldo? Well, now you don't have to.

That's because the latest bit of information from German Book, Football Leaks: The Dirty Business of Football, provides insight into how much his services cost.

The book was written by Der Spiegel journalists Rafael Buschmann and Michael Wulzinger, who are working alongside with the Football Leaks website.

Real Madrid's record goalscorer is of course contracted to Los Blancos so unfortunately you can't pay out your pocket money to have him turn up and play for your Sunday League team.

But the global phenomenon is available for half a days work, and as a Saudi telecoms firm found out in 2013, Ronaldo will cost an eye-watering amount to hire.

The book reveals that Mobily struck a deal with Ronaldo's Irish image rights company, Multisports & Image Management, whereby they would get four-and-a-half hours of his time.

The service consisted of a photo-shoot, five signed shirts and two plugs across his social media channels, where CR7 has an enormous following, reports the Mail.

Moreover, the firm were allowed to use images of the former Real Madrid that were taken on the day, but the advertising was limited to the Middle East and north Africa area.

For all of the above, Ronaldo and his representatives charged the company a monumental £920,000.

So if you want the Real Madrid star to do some work for you, you better cough up some big bucks.

News of what a company must fork out for Ronaldo's time is the latest reveal in a series of leaks.

In the book, figures of Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Manchester United wages have emerged - with the player picking up a tasty £367,640-a-week.

Interestingly, the former AC Milan striker managed to bag enough goals for United this season to earn himself a £2.86 million goal bonus but was four Premier League starts short of earning himself a contract extension to next season.

The leaked figures also suggest that Paul Pogba earns a weekly wage of 'only' £165,588-a-week, though from next year Pogba will get a loyalty bonus of £3.4 million a year on top of earning an extra £36k-a-week if United are successful in winning the Europa League this season.

The book also states that Mino Raiola, the super agent involved in bringing Pogba to the Premier League, is set to make a whopping £41 million from the transfer.
