Real Madrid's new contract offer to Cristiano Ronaldo will better the deal Lionel Messi enjoys at Barcelona.

Among the frustrations of Ronaldo at Real is that he's seen Messi outdo him financially during his time in Spain.

But Punto Pelota says Real's new offer of €14 million-a-year through to 2018 will leave Messi's €12.8 million-a-year in its dust.

However, image rights will also be contentious for Ronaldo, with the Portuguese pushing for a greater share than his current 50-50 split with the club. Messi enjoys 100 per cent of personal advertising revenue generated with Barca.
