•After £500,000 a week Real deal CRISTIANO RONAL DO has agreed a new lifetime contract with sports giant Nike that will earn him an astonishing £1billion. Only a day after putting pen to paper on a new contract with Real Madrid until 2021 that will see him pocket £500,000 a week after tax, Nike have moved swiftly to get their man. A spokesperson for Nike said: “The successful partnership between Nike and Cristiano Ronaldo will continue well into the future with a new, long-term contract. “Ronaldo is having yet another incredible year, for both club and country, and is unquestionably an icon of the game. He transcends football and is the most popular athlete on social media and the most famous athlete in the world.” Although the corporation has refused to confirm the £1billion figure, website TMZ reports that it follows similar negotiations to LeBron James’ lifetime contract, worth in excess of £1billion. The Portuguese star’s new deal at the Bernabeu will take him to 2021, when he will be 36. He is expected to pocket £225m for the duration. It’s no surprise Forbes listed him as the highest grossing athlete for 2016 as he collected in £71million.
