SPORTS – EPL; Ronaldo earns $850,000 following his hat trick against Norwich

Manchester United will pay Cristiano Ronaldo a bonus of £850,000 following his hat-trick in their 3-2 win against Norwich.

According to The Sun, Ronaldo triggered a bonus-related clause in his contract after hitting 21 goals for the season.


The deal the 37-year-old signed last year on his return to Old Trafford, includes a £750,000 bonus for reaching 20 goals plus a further £100,000 for his hat-trick strike.


Ronaldo will now receive £100,000 for each further goal he scores for the remainder of this season.


United will also pay their top scorer this season £1million and the Portugal captain seems almost certain to be the beneficiary, as he is 12 goals ahead of his closest challenger Bruno Fernandes.


Also, Ronaldo would receive around £2.75million in total payments if he manages to reach 30 goals this season.
