Cristiano Ronaldo to miss out on$6.5 million worth of bonuses because of a trophyless season at Manchester United.

Cris­tiano Ronal­do will kiss au revoir to$6.5 mil­lion because of Man­ches­ter United’s sea­son from hell.
Ronal­do returned to Old Traf­ford last sum­mer on a heav­i­ly perk- relat­ed con­tract to can­cel a hefty drop in his$-a-week pay­ment at Juventus.

But Unit­ed will fin­ish with­out a tro­phy for a fith con­sec­u­tive sea­son — blow­ing down utmost of those impulses.

The hefti­est was the Cham­pi­ons League last-16 defeat to Atleti­co Madrid, which would have earned Ronal­do about$ 4m had they reached the final in Paris in May.

Win­ning a first Prem title since 2013 was also worth up to$ 2m.

Fail­ure in both domes­tic cup com­pe­ti­tions was anoth­er kick in the hand­bag for the five- time Bal­lon d’Or win­ner.
Miss­ing Com­ing season’s Cham­pi­ons League would also be a huge blow to Ronal­do, whose begin­ning pay is around half the quan­ti­ty he earned in Italy.

Ronal­do, 37, will still spark a size­able bonus if he’s United’s top scor­er and only fel­low Por­tu­gal star Bruno Fer­nan­des is in touch­ing distance.

Yet it’s still a big cut on what Unit­ed hoped to pay when they piped neigh­bours Man­ches­ter City to his signature.

The Por­tu­gal play­er has amassed a aggre­gate of 18 goals and three assists in 33 match­es this season.
