Footballing superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo is set to lose around £5million following Manchester United's poor performance this season, with the Mirror reporting that the club's struggles have cost the player in terms of money.

Ronaldo stood to earn £2.5m had United won the Champions League, while he also would have pocketed personal bonuses relating to the Premier League - from a title triumph to a top-four finish - which would have doubled that tally.

However, the 37-year-old is s still likely to earn add-ons from finishing as the club's top scorer this term given he has scored 18 goals so far, which is nine more than Bruno Fernandes who is placed second in the list, though the Portugal skipper stands to lose out on at least £5m in a dent to his net worth.

Ronaldo's future at Old Trafford has come under a doubt with reports emerging that he will look for a move away if United do not qualify for the Champions League and it is understood that the club will not stand in his way should he decide to move as they have realised that the strikers return has not worked out for them.

It will be interesting to see what the five-time Ballon d'Or award winner decides to do come the end of the season as not a lot of clubs would be able to afford his ,massive wages.
