Cristiano Ronaldo Receives £10,000 For A Children’s Charity Following A Goal Milestone. Ronaldo scored against Arsenal in April to bring his total number of Premier League goals to 100.
After joining their 100 goals club, the Premier League reportedly gave Cristiano Ronaldo £10,000 for a charitable gesture.
According to Sportsmail, Ronaldo graciously matched a five-figure payment made in his honor by the English first division league, bringing the total donated to £20,000.
The Portuguese international scored in the Red Devils’ 3-1 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in April, bringing his total of Premier League goals scored to 100.

Sportsmail adds that Ronaldo surpassing the 100-goal threshold was judged worthy of distinction, even though it is believed that the Premier League made similar gestures to players to honor extraordinary feats in the past – and intended to keep them private.
Only 32 players have scored 100 goals in the Premier League era, including the former Real Madrid player, who has 102 goals to his name. In his 226 Premier League games, Ronaldo has also contributed 37 assists.
According to reports, Ronaldo has been offered to Paris Saint-Germain as rumors about his future continue to swirl.
Those hoping for a Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo attacking tandem may be disappointed, though, since PSG is rumored to have rejected the offer.
