Before joining Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia, Ronaldo earned $31 million a year at Manchester United two years ago, and this would be the salary he could earn at Leverkusen. No team in Europe could afford to pay Ronaldo his current salary at Al Nassr, as it triples the amount the whole team earns in the Bundesliga.

Bayer Leverkusen's yearly team salary is worth $68.1 million, according to As Grimaldo tops the list for the top earner, Patrik Schick earns $6.4 million as well, and it doesn't seem that any player could earn over $10 million except for Ronaldo. The Portuguese striker would take a huge pay cut, but his hunger for more greatness in Europe, including winning another Champions League, could lead to him joining, regardless of the money.
