Cristiano Ronaldo will miss out on £5MILLION in bonuses after another trophyless Man Utd season

Bestinau got that-

CRISTIANO RONALDO will part with £5million due to Manchester United’s season from hell.

Ronaldo returned to Old Trafford last summer on a heavily bonus-related contract to offset a hefty drop in his £750,000-a-week salary at Juventus.

But United will end up without a trophy for a FIFTH straight season – wiping out most of those incentives.

The heaviest was the Champions League defeat to Atlético Madrid in the last 16, which would have earned Ronaldo around £2.5 million had they reached the final in Paris in May.

Winning a first Prem title since 2013 was also worth up to £1.5 million.

Failing in both domestic cup competitions was another shoe in the wallet for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.

Missing out next season’s Champions League would also be a huge blow to Ronaldo, whose base salary is roughly half the amount he earned in Italy.

Ronaldo, 37, will still earn a significant bonus if he is United’s top goalscorer and only compatriot Bruno Fernandes is within touching distance.

Still, it’s still a big cut from what United expected to pay when they signed neighbors Manchester City.

The Portugal international has racked up a total of 18 goals and three assists in 33 games this season.


The Real Madrid legend is now focused on leading his country to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Portugal will face North Macedonia on Tuesday in their play-off final in Dragao.
