Juventus has been one of the teams in Europe to take pay cuts due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
The cuts have prompted a chunk of teams to follow suit to fight the pandemic but how much does one of their own start players in Cristiano Ronaldo earn after the pay cut?
According to Tuttosport, Ronaldo takes home an annual salary at Juventus of £28million, which would relate to approximately £280,000 every week. The wage cut will now see the Portugal captain cut his wages to by £3.4m (€3.8m).
Juventus players and coaching staff have agreed to take pay cuts for the next four months with the agreement said to be worth about £80.7million (€90m) of the club's wage bill.
A statement from Juventus in the weak noted: "Juventus Football Club S.p.A. announces that due to the current global health emergency is preventing the performance of the sporting activity, it has reached an understanding with the players and the coach of the First Team regarding their compensation for the residual portion of the current sport season.”
Earlier this month, the 35-year-old Ronaldo shared an important message with his 209m Instagram followers concerning the coronavirus pandemic saying: “If you ever dreamed of playing for millions around the world, now is your chance. Play inside, play for the world."
The outbreak of COVID-19 has disrupted the football calendar, with Serie A one of many European leagues being suspended.
