Top 5 highest paid footballers in 2023

4. Neymar (PSG – $87m/£78m) 

Following his record €222 million transfer to PSG, Neymar has remained one of the best-paid footballers in the world consistently. His recent extension offers him £78 million after taxes, making him the highest earning Brazilian in the world. 

3. Lionel Messi (PSG – $120m/£108m) 

Messi might have won The Best Men’s Player Award for 2022, but he isn’t quite the best paid player at PSG. Regardless, he earns a massive amount through sponsorships and endorsements which take the value up to £108 million. 

2. Kylian Mbappe (PSG — $128m/£115m) 

PSG scrambled to offer Mbappe a massive financial deal this past summer to extend his contract. As a result, he was the highest paid footballer in Europe before one of his idols overtook him by exiting the continental football picture.
