Portuguese captain, Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly tipped staff of his post World Cup holiday resort at Costa Navarino in Greece a whopping sum of €20,000 (8.4 Million Naira) as gratitude for good services before leaving to sign for Juventus in Turin.
The 33-year-old football star had travelled with his family, including his model girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez to the Coasta Navarino resort in Peloponnese peninsula of Greece after Portugal crashed out of the World Cup at the round of 16.
Obviously impressed by the quality of service at the hotel, Ronaldo wrote a cheque of €20,000 to the hotel management, telling them to split the amount equal to the ten staff that was assigned to him during his stay at the Greek resort.
The 5-time Ballon d’Or winner left Real Madrid after three successive Champions League triumph to sign for the Turin Giants, Juventus on Monday.
Juventus had coughed out a club record €100 million for the signature of the former Real Madrid man who signed a 4-year deal and will reportedly earn around €520,000 per week.
Ronaldo is presently away on his #CR7 global brand tour of China and will miss Juventus’ pre-season games against Bayern Munich, Benfica and Real Madrid in the United States.
The Greek luxury resort at Costa Navarino had served as both holiday and negotiating base for the star as Juventus President, Andrea Agnelli visited Ronaldo at the resort to complete their final negotiations before the official announcement.
Ronaldo at Real Madrid botched Juventus’ Champions League hope in twice (quarter-final and final), netting five goals in his last three meetings against his new employers.
The Italian Champions will be putting their hope on the 5-time Champions League winner to finally help them clinch Europe’s elite trophy that has eluded the club since 1996.
