How much money does Cristiano Ronaldo make per goal at Manchester United?

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo is a colossus of the modern game. A footballer that transcends boundaries across the sport, wowing the world with feats that can only be construed as a sight of mere fiction in the minds of mortals, breaking records as easily and as naturally as breathing. A true colossus of the sport, singlehandedly defying the notion of the sport. An icon, whose name will surely be entered in golden letters when all is said and done, right on the top echelons in the pantheon of greats. For an icon like Ronaldo, it is obvious that his services come at a price, and that price is not cheap.

The player who was linked with Manchester City in the summer transfer window finally made his way back home. The move happened after more than a decade of his exit from the club which made him a superstar. He had won it all during his time at Old Trafford under Sir Alex and moved on to win conquer other leagues and competitions.

Despite that, the return to his former team in England has been a mixed bag for the star striker. The player who came back to win more titles and trophies in the top flight of English football has seen his fair share of ups and downs at present. Things have not gone exactly how he would have liked them to, though the attacking player has had his moments since his return.

The current position of the Red Devils on the points table showcases exactly that and the fans have not been pleased with what they have seen so far this season. The departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not brought the team the success that they craved and new boss Ralf Ragnick hasn’t proved himself to be the right choice, as of now.

In fact, the arrival of the German boss has made things rather worse and the team seems to be out of the top four race. The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and co. are not firing at present and things have been a bit haywire in Manchester.

While this will be the first season where he will go trophyless in his long-decorated career, he still is the leading goal-scorer for his club with 18 goals this season, in spite of having his longest goal-drought in almost a decade. There have been instances where his goals have been the reason why Man United has gone across the line, with most of his goals being the difference between a win and a loss.

How much do Manchester United pay him per goal? 

If at all we go on to break down the financials involved with each goal scored divided by the money he earns this season, each goal scored costs Manchester United a very pretty penny, with his 18 goals coming at a price of almost around £1.5m per goal so far this season. That is some price for the goals he’s scored, and considering that those goals have their weight in gold, we think it’s money well-spent, even though it’s a mouth-watering sum.

With 7 games of the season yet to play, there is every chance that he can go ahead and add to his tally, because a man of his appetite will not just stop at 18 goals, and will definitely be running for more. And with Champions League qualification on the line, Man United will surely hope that Ronnie continues to score for them.
