Revealed: How Much It Would Cost To Sign Cristiano Ronaldo After He Reveals He Wants England Return

Published on:

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has put top Premier League clubs on red alert after revealing he wants to return to England.

The Portuguese has been linked with a move back to the Premier League

The Portugal skipper is currently caught up in a tax evasion case, and seems to have become unhappy with life in the Spanish capital.

He told the court: “In England, I never had these problems, that’s why I want to go back there. I always paid my taxes, always.”

“In England and in Spain. And I always paid. As you know, I cannot hide anything, it would be ridiculous on my part to do such a thing.”

Real Madrid are keen to keep hold of their star man

So how much would the former Manchester United forward cost if any Premier League club wants to bring back the four-time Ballon d’Or winner in England?

And the most obvious answer to this question would be – a stratospheric amount of money.

Earlier in 2015, Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes had insisted that a club would have to splurge £300million to secure the services of his client.

This is not the release clause in the Portugal skipper’s release clause, but the staggering transfer fee that Mendes suggests would convince the La Liga giants to sell their prized asset.

Ronaldo won the Champions League with Real Madrid last season

But super-agent Mendes would agree that this figure is different two years on – with an inflated transfer market this time around and also Ronaldo’s age being taken into consideration.

However, it is important to understand that Real Madrid might not agree to sell their superstar even if this astronomical figure is offered to them.

So, how much cash would guarantee a sale, or rather how much is Ronaldo’s release clause?

Neymar cost PSG a staggering £199million

Barcelona were helpless and had to sell Neymar, when PSG matched his staggering £199million release clause.

The Portuguese is contracted to Real Madrid until 2021

Ronaldo’s current contract at Real Madrid is set to expire in 2021, and it is believed that he will cost a lot more.

The Real Madrid forward is currently embroiled in a tax fraud case

The four time Ballon d’Or winner’s reported release clause is a whopping €1billion, which most of the English clubs would find impossible to fund. It seems that the Portuguese superstar might have to remain in Spain after all.
