In today’s world, the amount of money football players get is quite a large amount. The clubs have very wealthy owners who invest a large sum of money to see their club get all the success.
In order to make their club successful, they bring in all the top players of the game. The top players come with a hefty price tag and along with that a large salary.
The players not only earn from the salaries given by their clubs but also command a very large sum of money from the advertisements and bonuses.
France Football has released the top 10 football players who earn the highest amount of money. Let’s have a look:
10. Kylian Mbappe – €27m
The 2018 World Cup winner is the youngest player to be on this list. He is just 21-years-old but has won everything in France’s domestic football and most importantly the World Cup. There’s a long way to go for this young French international and probably he will rule the football world after Ronaldo and Messi.
9. Robert Lewandowski – €29m
The Bayern Munich stalwart is one of the best No. 9 of the game. He is deadly in the opponent’s penalty box. He is the only player from the Bundesliga on this list.
8. Raheem Sterling – €33m
Sterling is one of the main attacking players for Manchester City. City had great success in the last couple of seasons and Sterling is one of the reasons for their success. The Englishman is the only player from the Premier League on this list.
7. Andres Iniesta – €34m
The 2010 World Cup winner, who scored the solitary goal in the final is still the seventh highest-paid player in the world. The 35-year-old former Barcelona man currently plays in Japan for Vissel Kobe.
6. Eden Hazard – €38m
Hazard moved to Real Madrid this season to bring the old Galactico status back in Madrid. Following the departure of Ronaldo, he is expected to lead the Real Madrid attack but his injuries haven’t allowed him to do so till now.
5. Antoine Griezmann – €38m
Barcelona bought Griezmann to partner Messi and Suarez in the attack. He had a huge pay-rise following the move. But he hasn’t quite found his feet in the Camp Nou yet.
4. Gareth Bale – €38m
Bale has gone way below Zidane’s pecking order in Real Madrid but still, he is the highest earner in Real Madrid. The fourth highest-paid player in the world has scored only 3 goals in 18 matches for Real Madrid this season.
3. Neymar – €95m
The PSG superstar hasn’t yet delivered them the Champions League but he commands a massive salary. There’s a massive €57m gap from Bale in 4th position to Neymar in 3rd.
2. Cristiano Ronaldo – €118m
One of the best players of this generation definitely deserves a top 3 place on this list. The 5 time Ballon d’Or winner has moved to Juventus in 2018 after 9 very successful seasons in Real Madrid. Even at the age of 35 Ronaldo earns over €100m per-year. So, you can guess what an invaluable talent he is!
1. Lionel Messi – €131m
Everyone could have guessed who’s the No. 1 on this list. The little magician has won everything for Barcelona. The 6 time Ballon d’Or winner is regarded as the best by many. So, the best player also deserves the highest salary.
