Report reveals how much Ronaldo weighs on Juve’s balance sheet

June 29, 2021 - 4:30 pm

Since Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival in the summer of 2018, Juve’s budget hadn’t looked the same. Whilst the management adopted a mostly cautious approach in the Giuseppe Marotta days, this transfer signaled the beginning of a more adventurous era.

Whilst the success or failure of this transfer strategy from a financial perspective remains a topic of debate, the Portuguese’s 100 million euros move from Real Madrid remains the Bianconeri’s record transfer.

Besides the hefty transfer fee, CR7 earns astronomical wages. The star receives 31 million euros as net wages, but when we add the taxes paid, this figure becomes much larger.

According to ilBianconero, Ronaldo costs Juventus 87 millions per season, between wages and transfer payments.

Whilst the management was perhaps happy to pay these figures following his landing in Turin, the financial difficulties caused by the Covid-19 pandemic made it a huge burden on the club’s balance sheet.

Ronaldo has only year left in his contract, and it remains to be seen whether he’ll stay with the Old Lady until its expiry in 2022, or opt for an earlier divorce this summer.

On the pitch, the former Manchester United star often delivered the goals, and he became the first player in the club’s history to reach his 100th goal as early as his third season with the club.

However, a section of the fans has been unhappy with his performances – especially after the Champions League elimination at the hands of Porto – believing that his presence affected the team’s playing style in a negative manner.

    1 million per goal was bad enough. he will milk us dry for a final season, no one wants to pay him. we have been worse since he came, our fanbase is infiltrated with fanboys, and no financial space to improve the aging squad with quality while he`s here apart from Chiesa and hopefully Locatelli. out! everyone will be happy

    remember he failed to score against benevento, and ducked in a defensive wall letting in vital goals. ducked. he should go to France, establish himself as undisputed goat of his generation, then retire to Sporting.

      How about you talk about all the errors the midfielders and defenders have made. Ronaldo has been nothing but a scapegoat this season to justify the teams’ poor performances. An inexperienced manager like Pirlo can only do so much. He was literally the only scorer in UCL KO stages until Chiesa starred.
      People like you are the ones who turn against players like Morata if they perform badly.
      Stop the agenda. If the fans don’t support someone from our own team, then who will?
