Ronaldo is likely to be only the second highest earner at Real behind Kaka, the former Milan forward who completed his move to the Bernabeu earlier this week for £56m. While Ronaldo's reported £80m fee outstrips Kaka, it is understood he will earn a salary of around €8m net (£6.8m), which when Spain's non-domicile tax rate of 25% is factored in is close to €211,000 (£180,000) a week before add ons.
