The president of Corinthians has revealed the stale competition they faced when they tried to sign Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo for the same salary the player earned with the Red Devils.


What did Alves say about Cristiano Ronaldo?

Cristiano Ronaldo was reportedly earning nearly £400,000 a week at Old Trafford, with Corinthians’ sporting director saying he tried to take him on to continue that paycheck. However, Duilio Monteiro Alves said that Al-Nassr’s successful bid to sign the Portuguese had blown past everything the Brazilian side could afford.

The sporting director of Corinthians said they made an offer to Cristiano Ronaldo. A salary equal to what Ronaldo earned at Man Utd, a two-year deal with the help of sponsors, Alves said. Alves knows that Cristiano Ronaldo had offers from Europe, but the offer from Saudi Arabia was 20 times higher.

Along with the European offers, Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano reported that Cristiano Ronaldo turned down an offer from Sporting Kansas City, where the striker would dwarf even NFL megastar Patrick Mahomes in the city. Cristiano has signed a two-year contract with Saudi Arabia worth 200 million euros per year, as well as a contract with the Saudi Ambassador for the 2030 World Cup.

Duilio Monteiro Alves added that he spoke six, seven times with agent Jorge Mendez and in the end they sent the offer through another person. According to him, he made an offer and even hoped not to accept it. Jokingly, they already had many partners, forewarned. Alves thinks they should try.
