“Cristiano Ronaldo has been clear with Real Madrid, he expects – as the best player in the world, in his opinion – to be paid the best wages in the world.
“I.E: He wants to have his salary increased above the level Neymar is on at PSG and Lionel Messi is on at Barcelona after his renewal.”
Ronaldo had a sensational 2017, helping the Los Blancos to win a second Champions League title in a row as well as claiming top spot in LaLiga.
The Portuguese international has also claimed his fifth Ballon D’or, drawing level with arch-rival, Messi.
Ronaldo signed a new deal of his own in 2016 but it’s since been blown out of the water by Messi and the pay packet Neymar gets at Paris St-Germain following his £198m move last summer.
Messi signed a huge new contract with the spanish club late last year which took his earnings past Ronaldo.
