Raul on peanuts compared to Real Madrid signing Ronaldo

Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo will become the world's best paid player when he completes his move to Real Madrid. Ronaldo's agent, Jorge Mendes, is still finalising terms over image rights, however Marca says in wages alone the Portuguese star will become the game's highest paid in history.

The winger will earn a stunning €13 million-a-season - which surpasses the €12 million salary Zlatan Ibrahimovic enjoys at Inter Milan.

How the staggering figure will go down inside the Real dressing room is up for debate, with Ronaldo now earning MORE THAN DOUBLE that of senior players Raul and Iker Casillas.
