Cristiano Ronaldo may finally have his Manchester United escape route after reportedly being offered a gargantuanly lucrative deal to play in Saudi Arabia.
According CNN Portugal, the 37-year-old has been approached by an unnamed club in the gulf state who are prepared to hand him a £250million two-year contract, which would see him earning a staggering £2.4million every single week.
Not only would the deal make him the highest-paid footballer on the planet, it would also see him earning more than Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi and Neymar (currently the three highest-paid players in the world) combined!

Ronaldo rocked United after handing in a transfer request last month, expressing a desire to spend the last few years of his career playing in the Champions League.
Despite the fact that new Red Devils boss Erik ten Hag insisted that the five-time Ballon d'Or winner isn't for sale during his first pre-season press conference on Sunday, Ronaldo has been absent from the club's pre-season tour thus far and remains on indefinite leave due to 'personal reasons'.
"We are planning for Cristiano Ronaldo for the season and that's it and I'm looking forward to working with him," the Dutchman said.
"Cristiano is not for sale, he is in our plans and we want success together. I spoke with him before this issue came up, I had a conversation with him and I had a good talk."
