Juventus would have to pay €120m for Cristiano Ronaldo, as €100m goes to Real Madrid and €20-25m to agent Jorge Mendes, it’s reported.
According to Sport Mediaset, Mendes has agreed to ensure Real Madrid stand by the gentlemen’s agreement signed in January to let CR7 go to a non-rival club for €100m.
In return, the representative would receive €20-25m in various commissions.
It’s certainly not the first time that Juve have been made to pay massive commissions for players signed at relatively cheap prices.
Mino Raiola got a huge cut when Paul Pogba went from free agent to €105m sale to Manchester United, while this summer Emre Can cost around €16m in commission fees even when his contract with Liverpool had expired.
If these figures are correct, Cristiano Ronaldo would cost at least €120m, perhaps up to €150m, not to mention the €30m per year net salary he wants over a four-year contract.
