Cristiano Ronaldo Makes More Money Than FOUR Serie A Teams As Juventus Superstar’s Wages Are Revealed
Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo's astonishing £28m-a-year wages are worth more or equal to the entire squad bill for four Serie A teams, according to stunning reports.
Ronaldo's net worth has allowed him to reap the benefits of his off-field business and endorsements, but the Juventus forward's wages put him miles ahead of any other earner in Serie A.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that the former Manchester United star earns four times more than the second highest-earning player in the Italian league.
The Italian newspaper claims Ronaldo's teammate Matthijs de Ligt is the second-highest earner on a £7.2m-a-year salary, with the former Ajax star pocketing £138k-a-week in Turin.
Following behind Ronaldo and De Ligt in Juventus' highest earners are Paulo Dybala (£6.6m salary), Adrien Rabiot (£6.3m) and Aaron Ramsey (£6.3m).
