Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick earned him £850k bonus

Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly got a £850k bonus for scoring his 60th career hat-trick in Saturday's 3-2 Premier League victory over Norwich City.

The Portugal international was in the right position at the right time to open the score following a Canary's defensive blunder, before heading home to double his tally in the first half.

Norwich rallied via Kieran Dowell and Teemu Pukki, but Ronaldo rescued the day in the second half with a wonderfully placed free-kick that boosted United's top-four aspirations.

According to The Sun, Ronaldo got a £750k bonus for scoring 20 goals in all competitions this season, and an additional £100k for scoring his season's 21st goal.

According to the source, the 37-year-old will earn an additional six figures for each goal he scores after reaching the 20-goal milestone, and will earn a £1 million bonus if he finishes the season as the club's top scorer.

Ronaldo now has a total of 139 goals in 326 games for Manchester United, who have climbed to fifth in the standings following their victory against Norwich.
