Cristiano Ronaldo is ready to slash his eye-watering £480,000-per-week paycheck to join a Champions League contender.
Ronaldo has reportedly made it clear to Manchester United that if an offer comes in for him, he wants to leave this summer. And that could come at the cost of the Portuguese megastar having to take a pay cut – which he would accept.
According to The Independent, Ronaldo's desire to win the Champions League one more time is driving his push for the exit door. And he is 'willing to make significant compromises' for potential suitors if it means he can play in Europe's premier competition.

Ronaldo missed the Red Devils' first pre-season session on Monday for ‘family reasons’.
