Cristiano Ronaldo probably doesn’t need another €20million but he’s just made it in the easiest way possible.
By doing literally nothing.
The Real Madrid star was due to be given a small role in Martin Scorsese’s new film The Manipulator.
Yes, really. But only because his penthouse apartment in New York is due to be used by the movie’s producers during shooting.
And as part of the deal he was offered a cameo in the film but that’s now been scuppered after the man who the flick is based on vetoed Ronaldo’s involvement .
And as compensation CR7 is about to earn €20million for literally doing nothing. Apart from tidying up a bit and hoovering his new flat before everyone comes round.
“Ronaldo is a great player, but that doesn’t mean he is the king of the world,” said Alessandro Proto, an Italian millionaire who the book 50 Shades of Grey is supposedly based on.
“I don’t want him in a film about my life. Martin Scorsese is in agreement with me.Cristiano Ronaldo is not going to be in the film .
“I am sorry if he doesn’t feel valued, but in life you win some and you lose some. If I really have to give him €20million, I will give it to him with my own hands.”
Blimey, clearly this guy is a Lionel Messi fan!
