The Mail on Sunday says Ronaldo's agent, Jorge Mendes, stands to earn an astonishing £10million if he can engineer the Portugal winger's world record £70m move from Manchester United to Real Madrid.

Despite the player's declaration of his desire to leave Old Trafford, United boss Sir Alex Ferguson will refuse to be forced into showdown talks with his star player.

Mendes, known as 'The Octopus' because of the number of moves he has a hand in, can expect the huge commission if he clinches Ronaldo's exit from Old Trafford.

It would be the most lucrative deal of a summer in which he has already brokered Chelsea's recruitment of Luiz Felipe Scolari as manager and which promises to bring further fees for his involvement in potential deals involving Deco and Ricardo Carvalho.
