Real Madrid star Ronaldo to add world record £40M Nike deal to massive contract

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is in line for a bumper new boot deal with Nike. The Daily Star Sunday says he is set to cash in again with a world-record boot deal worth £40million.

The Real Madrid superstar has just become the highest-paid footballer in history with a five-year deal which earns him £285,000 a week AFTER tax.

Now, he is expected to agree a new boot deal with Nike in the next few months.

His current agreement with the American ­sportswear company, worth £5m a year, expires in 2014.

Industry sources believe it will be replaced with a new deal worth £8m a year over five years.
