Cristiano Ronaldo would be paid €20m per year as the face of Ferrari, as Juventus prepare to fly out for their final €100m presentation to Real Madrid.
Multiple sources are now confident the deal will go through for €100m and Sky Sport Italia claim director general Beppe Marotta is currently in the Milan offices of Juventus waiting for a call from agent Jorge Mendes.
If the €100m gentlemen’s agreement fee instituted in January is confirmed, then the Bianconeri chief will fly out this evening with a private jet to complete the swoop with Florentino Perez in Madrid.
They are hoping to have the Portugal international in Turin on Saturday for his medical.
Meanwhile, more details are emerging about how Juve are going to pay for the €30m per year net salary that CR7 is demanding (€60m gross) over four seasons.
According to Il Sole 24 Ore newspaper, this includes making the Ballon d’Or winner into a global representative of Ferrari.
The Agnelli family and their FCA group own Juventus, Fiat and Ferrari, among other massive companies, and are planning to create more synergy between the various sectors of their empire.
Cristiano Ronaldo is not just being signed as a player, but also as a brand and marketing boon.
