Real Madrid insures Ronaldo’s legs for $150 million


Real Madrid purchasing Cristiano Ronaldo for a record $108 million is old news now. The latest news on this highly-priced player is that Real Madrid has insured his legs for a whopping £90 million ($150 million)! Fearing the worst after the star player has recently picked up a knock, the Spanish giants want to protect their money if he picks up a long-term injury. It was definitely a cause of worry for boss Florentino Perez when he heard that Ronaldo had already been fouled 34 times in three pre-season games. The tackles will definitely come harder once the Spanish league begins.
