Cristiano Ronaldo joined Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr on a mega rich deal at the end of last year.

And the Portuguese icon clearly remembered to pack to his shooting boots after leaving Manchester United in November 2022, scoring 14 times in the second half of the Saudi Pro League season.

Whilst Ronaldo will be confident of finishing top of the scoring pile in the league next season, he will be mindful of the competition from former teammate Karim Benzema who has joined rivals Al-Ittihad in his own blockbuster deal.

But exactly how much money is Ronaldo earning in the yellow and blue of Al-Nassr?

Read on to find out about the eye-watering sum of money.

According to Saudi Arabian state-owned media, Ronaldo is earning £173m a year at Al-Nassr.

Of this total salary, £62m is for playing football, whilst the remaining £111m is for commercial deals and image rights, according to CBS Sports.

The non-football fee will also see Ronaldo become an ambassador for the country’s bid to host the World Cup in 2030.

Ironically, Saudi Arabia’s bid to co-host the World Cup with Egypt and Greece will face stiff competition from Portugal, who themselves look set to submit a bid alongside Spain and Ukraine.

Ronaldo’s salary dwarfs that of career rival Lionel Messi, who was reportedly earning around £36m a year at French champions PSG.

  • Per year: £173m
  • Per month: £14.4m
  • Per week: £3.6m
  • Per day: £514k
  • Per hour: £21,400
  • Per minute: £357
  • Per second: £6

The deal which took Ronaldo to the Saudi Pro League will take him beyond his 40th birthday to the summer of 2025.

According to the Daily Mail, Ronaldo was earning £20m a year during his second spell at Old Trafford.

The 37-year-old had taken a pay cut to move to United in 2021, where he was thought to be on £26m per annum at previous club Juventus.
