Cristiano Ronaldo has won Marca’s Alfredo di Stefano award for the best player in La Liga for the 2015-16 season. This is coming just hours after signing a new multi-million pound deal with Real Madrid.

Ronaldo netted 35 goals and provided 11 assists for Madrid in the La liga last season, netted 16 times in the Champions League which Madrid won, while also won the Euros with Portugal.

‘The 2015-16 season was filled with many emotions with the Champions League and the European Championship,’ Ronaldo told the audience upon being presented the award at the Florida Retiro in Madrid. Today has also been a very special day with my contract renewal and a prize from MARCA. What else I can ask for? I’m very happy. This motivates me to keep working and get better in the next few years.’

Meanwhile,  RONALDO has agreed a new lifetime contract with sports giant Nike that will earn him an astonishing £1billion.

Only a day after putting pen to paper on a new contract with Real Madrid until 2021 that will see him pocket £500,000 a week after tax, Nike have moved swiftly to get their man. It’s little surprise the footballer was listed by Forbes as the highest earning athlete of 2016, pocketing £71million
