Portuguese football star Cristiano Ronaldo has been reportedly exempted from taking salary pay-cut at Italian giants Juventus which means his £522,000-a-week take home is still intact.
Coronavirus has brought serious financial effect on the global economy in which many firms are struggling to cope as a result of the virus.
And for this reason, Juventus who are the reigning champions are preparing to cut the wages of their players since the League is currently on suspension.
Also, the club will not be signing any player whose weekly income will be more than £151,000-a-week as from next season.
According to the report by Corriere di Torino, the Old Lady chiefs have made this decision so as for them to protect their financial solidity.
Cristiano Ronaldo however don’t need to worry about the club’s plan to slash salary of players as his own income will not be touched by the club’s directors.
Gonzalo Higuain, Andrien Rabiot, Aaron Ramsey and Paulo Dybala are the other players whose money will not be affected by the changes coming.
Juventus’ recent cap is now expected to affect their desire to re-sign Frenchman Paul Pogba from Manchester United as he earns £290,000 a week at Old Trafford.
This will now give Real Madrid the chance to go for the World Cup winner since Juventus will not be able to pay Pogba his weekly salary.
Manchester United on the other hand are trying their best to convince Paul Pogba to stay at Old Trafford and fight for his place.
The 35-year-old is currently observing the 14 days mandatory self-quarantine instruction given by the Italian government for all foreign players returning to their club.
And the former Manchester United and Real Madrid forward is taking advantage of the moment to train his first son while they bond in their garden. Both were filmed throwing the ball at each other while they jab it back with both legs in one of the routines they did.
The Portuguese star is expected to join his colleagues once he completed his 2 weeks mandatory isolation exercise to ensure he did not import COVID-19 from his country.
Meanwhile, the forward will be hoping to continue from where he stopped before the league was put on hold and help Juventus reclaim the title.
