Cristiano Ronaldo in line for a record deal

Table of Contents
Manchester United are reportedly willing to offer Cristiano Ronaldo a whopping £200,000-a-week deal to keep him at Old Trafford until 2014.

Ronaldo's future has been the subject of intense scrutiny over the past year, with Real Madrid continuously linked with a move to take the Portuguese winger to the Bernabéu.

And according to the News of the World, United will offer the 23-year-old a £10.4 million-a-year contract in order to retain his services and prevent him from joining the Spanish giants.

Ronaldo still has three years left on his current £120,000-a-week deal but a FIFA ruling means he can buy himself out of that contract at the end of next season.

It is understood Old Trafford hierarchy plan to make him the Premier League's highest paid player on a basic weekly salary of £160,000 – plus an extra £40,000 for image rights and commercial activities.

It will also dwarf team-mate Wayne Rooney’s £115,000-a-week wages, England skipper John Terry’s £135,000 at Chelsea, Robinho’s £160,000 at Manchester City and Steven Gerrard’s £120,000 at Liverpool.

"Cristiano wants to clear his head of the Real Madrid move once and for all," said a source close to the player.

"When he agreed to stay at United last summer he thought it would be just for one more year.

"But now he seems to be setting his mind on the long term because he realises he can fulfil all his ambitions at Old Trafford."
