Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo turns down €300m transfer deal to Chinese football club
thinkSPAIN , Friday, December 30, 2016

AN UNDISCLOSED Chinese football club is said to have offered €300 million for Balon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo, but the Portuguese star player says he does not want to leave Real Madrid.

Speaking to Sky Italy during the Globe Soccer Awards in Dubai, CR7's manager said the Portuguese national team captain would have earned around €100m a year if he had taken up the offer.

But money is not everything – Real Madrid is his life,” the spokesman for the player explained.

Cristiano is happy at Real Madrid and it's impossible for him to go to China.

The Chinese market is an emerging one, in football. They have the capacity to buy numerous top players, but it would not be possible for Ronaldo to go.”

Earlier this week, Argentina's Carlos Tévez joined Shanghai Shenhua FC, a Chinese Super League team, leaving Boca Juniors for a transfer fee of €84m.

And last week, Brazil's Oscar left Chelsea for Shanghai SIPG for a reported €60m.
