Cristiano Ronaldo Set to Become Highest Paid Athlete in the World Ahead of Multi Million Saudi Move. Cristiano Ronaldo is in line to become the world’s highest-paid athlete ahead of his proposed sensational transfer to Saudi.

The veteran striker is currently on international duty with Portugal in Qatar at the 2022 World Cup.

Ronaldo became a free agent this month after his contract at Manchester United was terminated prematurely with months left on it.

His deal with the Red Devils was set to expire at the end of the season, only for the club to cut ties with him abruptly after his explosive interview with Piers Morgan.

Ronaldo to become best-paid athlete

However, it seems the 37-year-old will not stay clubless for long, with the star forward linked with a stunning move to Saudi giants Al Nassr.

Reports suggest Al Nassr stand the best chance of signing the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who was initially projected to continue playing in Europe.

According to Marca, Ronaldo has already agreed a two-and-a-half-year deal worth £173million-a-year with the Saudi club.

The deal, The Sun reports, will see the former Real Madrid become the best-paid athlete in the world.

Kylian Mbappe is currently the world’s highest-paid sportsman, with the Frenchman taking home an estimated £106.7million a year after renewing his deal with Paris Saint-Germain.

Lionel Messi is placed second on the charts, with the Argentine earning £62.5million, while Neymar is third with £58.3million.
