Monaco Set to Make World Record £85m Bid For Cristiano Ronaldo: Nightly Soccer Report

Expect the majority of headlines and Sky Sports News tomorrow to report on the news that Monaco are set to make a world record £85million bid to try to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid. The explosive story is in tonight’s edition of The Independent newspaper.

According to the article by Jack Pitt-Brooke:

“The Ligue 1 club, funded by Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev, have already spent over £110m this summer on Radamel Falcao of Atletico Madrid and James Rodriguez and Joao Moutinho of Porto. They are now prepared to make their boldest move yet, taking advantage of the Portuguese forward’s frustration at Madrid, and failure to sign a new deal, to tempt him to join with a world record salary offer of €20m (£17m) per year.

“Monaco are closely monitoring Ronaldo’s negotiations with Real Madrid over a contract extension, and if no deal is done by late July or August they will make their move. There have been talks between Monaco and Ronaldo’s camp over the last 18 months and the two parties met earlier this year.”
