TMZ cameras caught Ronaldo and his 13-man entourage leaving club MyHouse last night -- hours after his current squad, Manchester United, accepted a world-record sized deal to sell him to Real Madrid.

It's unclear exactly how much Ronaldo will pocket from the deal -- but it's sure to buy a helluva lot of Ed Hardy.

this could be a time of great change for man.utd. ,I suspect sir alex is gong to say bye-bye- as well. Real Madrid is going to be a powerhouse. Kaka is the real deal.

TMZ seems to forget that's nothing after taxes. And since when does this fall into the 30 mile zone?

Good riddance Ronaldo!!! Man U is better off without him. He cares more about himself than he does his team. He is always diving, crying and generally acting like a baby. I'd rather keep Tevez anyway. Let Real Madrid deal with his drama. Go Red Devils!!!!

WEN you are the smartest person on this post... Teves is not as great an individual player as Ronaldo but he is by far a better team player... He is an amazing scorer and a team first guy. Plus not to mention all that loot will help Man U reload big time. Sir Alex ain't going any where... He is one of the best coaches ever... Ronaldo is a self absorbed, money hungry, selfish player. Good luck Real.. you still suck lol.... You can deal with Terrell Owens oops I mean Cristiano Ronaldo!!!

Thanks Goolsbinin. I truly believe United are better without him. We've got Rooney, Berbatov and hopefully Tevez....Cristiano who???

as was mentioned, TMZ is an idiot again.. Real Madrid PAID ManU that money for the RIGHT to sign him..

He doesn't get any of that. What RealMad will do is sign him to a new contract.

Think of this as an NBA trade.. Instead of say, Memphis trading Gausol to the Lakers for some scrubs, the Lakers would have sent 131Million to Memphis and got Gausol in return.

he will at least make as much as kaka who signed for 9.1 million euros a season
my guess is he makes 10 million euro a year... working out to about 16 million a season
that doesnt include his 50/50 image rights with real meaning he will earn 50% of the profits to shirt sales, merchandise etc

he willl make over 25 million a year
