Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, will earn over £10m personally from the star’s big move to Juventus, as reported by the ‘Daily Mail’.
According to the ‘Daily Mail’, Mendes himself was the architect of the mega move. The super-agent represents many high-profile clients, such as Ronaldo, Jose Mourinho, David de Gea and James Rodriguez.
However, although the total value of the move is £100m, Sporting Lisbon and Manchester United will reportedly share £4.4m from sell-on clauses within this fee.
Furthermore, Mendes will earn himself a £10.6m payday through agents’ fees. Ronaldo himself will earn £26.6m per year at his new club, and the total cost of the move for Juve will be £310m over four years.
Ronaldo’s wages, which are estimated to be worth around £500,000 per week, will be paid in-part by Fiat, the club’s sponsors.
