Cristiano Ronaldo Survives Mega-Wages Slashed By Juventus

Ronaldo Mega-Wages Slashed Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo’s enormous £522,000-a-week wages will not be cut, despite Juventus becoming the first club to impose a salary cap.

The Serie A champions are hoping to cut costs and one of these measures is to ensure that from next season, they will only hand out contracts worth a maximum of £151,000-a-week.

According to Corriere di Torino, this is to protect the “financial solidity” of the club.

This will see a radical shift in their transfer policy.

The likes of Paulo Dybala, Aaron Ramsey, Gonzalo Higuain and Adrien Rabiot all earn more than the new cap – but will not see the salaries of their existing deals slashed.

There is also talk that the new restrictions will not apply to exceptional case Ronaldo – who has two years remaining on his eye-watering contract.

Juve’s first-team stars agreed to a four-month wage deferral back in March, which will save the club around £80million up to the end of August.

This amount will be paid back to the players in future years, however.
