Cristiano Ronaldo is on the verge of agreeing a new contract at Real Madrid and will get a whopping €15million-a-year to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu for the next five years.

According to Punto Pelota, the former Manchester United man will put pen to paper on the deal when he returns from the international break with Portugal next week. The agreement would come despite the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo's future at Madrid has been questioned more than ever this summer.

A number of reports earlier in the year suggested Manchester United were trying to put together a deal to take him back to Old Trafford and another claiming the 29-year-old was keen on it happening at some point.

However, this latest report suggests the new contract for Ronaldo has been ready to sign for a little while and that it will take his salary up to an incredible €15million a year.

Ronaldo has two years left on his current deal, so Real Madrid's bargaining position, should he decide he wants to leave, would be severely weakened next summer with only a year remaining.

Punto Pelota claim the deal will boost his salary and put a three-year extension on his current contract, effectively making it a new five-year deal.
