Cristiano Ronaldo would easily be the top earner in the Liga MX if he joins Monterrey CF.

Cristiano Ronaldo's current salary at Al Nassr is $215 million a year in the Saudi Pro League, which automatically means he would be the top earner in Liga MX if he joins Monterrey CF. Ronaldo would need to take a huge pay cut, but it will still make him the most-paid player in the Mexican league. The top earner in the Liga MX is Monterrey CF's Sergio Canales, who earns $5 million a year. Ronaldo's last contract before Saudi Arabia was reportedly around $31 million yearly at Manchester United. His salary in Mexico could range between $10 million to $25 million yearly.

Other names on the list of the top earners in Liga MX are Andre-Pierre Gignac from Tigres UANL and Ronaldo's former teammate at Real Madrid, Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez. Chicharito currently plays at Chivas de Guadalajara and earns $4 million a year, while Gignac earns $4.6 million yearly. Ronaldo's transfer to Monterrey CF will be really expensive for Monterrey since it is currently $3.8 million a week, near the full salaries of Chicharito and Gignac.

Cristiano Ronaldo could expect full stadiums in Mexico, both home and away games. The Estadio BBVA was full when Lionel Messi and Inter Miami traveled to Mexico to play against Monterrey. Football stars like Ronaldinho have played in the Liga MX in the past when the Brazilian star played for Queretaro. The signing assured packed stadiums across Mexico, including the Estadio Azteca. The same could be expected if Ronaldo joins the Mexican league.
