Cristiano Ronaldo signed a mega new deal at Real Madrid, earning a reported 15 million Pounds per year after tax. And what did Ronaldo do with the extra cash? He bought himself a pair of spectacles!
Days after being usurped as the world's most expensive footballer by teammate Gareth Bale, Ronaldo got his own back. He earns double what the Welshman earns and is reportedly the highest-earning footballer in the world.
Rather than the money, the focus of the contract signing was on the 'geeky' look portrayed by CR7. As the shutterbugs clicked away, Ronaldo was one to oblige with a thumbs-up and his million-dollar smile.
In a blow to Manchester United's ambitions to resign him, Ronaldo said he was extremely happy at Real Madrid. Seen here sharing a laugh with Madrid president Florentino Perez, the 28-year-old admitted that he would like to 'see out his career' with the nine-time European champions.
After what seemed like hours of contract signing and interviews, Ronaldo finally took off the glasses. He was left with a little itch above his eye, but nothing too serious we hope...
