Cristiano Ronaldo's agent says the superstar rejected an offer from a Chinese Super League club that would have paid him over 100 million euros (105,581,500 dollars) per year.
Jorge Mendes confirmed to Sky Sports Italia in an interview released that the unnamed club were willing to pay Real Madrid a transfer fee of 300 million euros ($316,744,500).
"From China, they've offered 300m euros to Real Madrid and more than 100m euros per year to the player," Mendes said. "But money is not everything; the Spanish club is his life."
The 300m euros transfer fee would have nearly tripled the record 105m euros price that Manchester United paid Juventus for Paul Pogba in the summer.
Last year, Mendes told the BBC that "someone will pay" 300m pounds (then 396m euros) for Ronaldo should Real Madrid put him up for sale, but Mendes also claimed the Portuguese1
star had a 1 billion pounds (1.32bn euros) release clause.
Ronaldo, who won his fourth Ballon d'Or recently, signed a new contract at Madrid in November, extending his commitment to the club until 2021.
"The Chinese market is a new market," Mendes said. "They can buy a lot of players, but then again it is impossible to go for Ronaldo. Cristiano is the best player in the world and best ever. It is normal to have some offers."
