12 Of The Strangest Contract Requests In Football History

After some outrageous contract requests by Kylian Mbappe and his representatives were revealed recently, here are some other strange demands made by some of football's biggest stars, including Cristiano Ronaldo and Ronaldinho.

Click through the gallery to see some of the weirdest contract requests in football history, according to Marca.

Mbappe's demands were brought to light by Football Leaks and Der Spiegel last week, with the teenage sensation reportedly asking for a private jet to be available to him for 50 hours a year, and to automatically become Paris Saint-Germain's highest-paid player if he wins the Ballon d'Or, among other special requests.

However, the France superstar is not the only player who has made crazy demands. Ronaldinho, for example, is believed to have asked Mexican side Queretaro for a house with a swimming pool, a beach football pitch, a seven-a-side pitch and four butlers, as reported by Marca.

Ivorian attacker Gervinho reportedly asked Chinese side Hebei China Fortune for a mansion for his family, a helicopter and a private beach, while Juventus youngster Moise Kean's father was more interested in agriculture and requested a tractor and agricultural equipment.

Juventus superstar Ronaldo may not have had such crazy demands on his own contract with clubs, but reportedly insists on a confidentiality clause in his own staff's deals. It is believed they are forbidden from saying anything about his private life for "up to 70 years after the death of Cristiano Ronaldo or the last of his relatives", according to Football Leaks.

Thomas Vermaelen reportedly included a clause in his contract that sees him receiving €100 000 (R1.6 million) if he is played out of position, while Hugo Lloris receives a bonus of £3 500 (R64 000) if his side draw or lose with him on the pitch.
