CRISTIANO RONALDO INKS BILLION DOLLAR LIFE-TIME DEAL WITH NIKE
It hasn't been a bad week for Cristiano Ronaldo, or perhaps more specifically, Cristiano Ronaldo's bank balance. After locking down basketball Legend Lebron in a billion dollar life-time deal Nike set their sites on Cristiano Ronaldo.
Just 24 hours after signing a new five-year deal with Real Madrid that will see him pocket a cool £365,000 (R6, 155, 474) a week after tax, Nike have announced their own new long-term endorsement deal with the Portuguese that sees him tied to the brand 'for life'.
It is sure to see Ronaldo earn an increase on the £14.1million (R237, 780, 240) a year he banked previously with the sportswear giant, with reports in America suggesting the contract is similar to the $1billion lifetime agreement in place with NBA star LeBron James.
