There is a lot of money in football these days. Many will say football players are overpaid, but nobody can deny they possess exceptional knowledge of football.
Let’s take a look at some of the highest money-making footballers in the current season.
Cristiano Ronaldo – He’s not only on the top of the highest money-making footballers list but also one of the richest active sportsmen today. His football skills are great, but physical appearance also played a great part in this, as it enabled him a lot of money from commercials and other endorsements.
Lionel Messi – It’s an eternal debate on who is better, Ronaldo or Messi. We can discuss when it comes to football skills, but when it comes to total earnings, Barcelona player comes in second. He’s not far behind, however, and can be more than satisfied with the money he makes.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic – The third on the highest money-making footballers list is a guy that doesn’t play in the top three European leagues. However, Zlatan Ibrahimovic made himself a great deal when he signed with Paris Saint-Germain, whose new owners have so many millions they can’t even count them.
Gareth Bale – When he transferred to Real Madrid, he silently agreed to be the second violin when it comes to popularity, behind Cristiano Ronaldo. However, Gareth Vale is adored in his home country, and his club is aware of the contribution he is giving on the pitch, which enabled him a great contract.
Neymar – The Brazilian will probably come on top of the list by the end of his career. He is young enough to know time works for him, skilled enough to be among the best football players for years, and pretty enough for good endorsements. His popularity and the money he is making can only grow.
Asamoah Gyan – He’s the guy that knows what he wants, and he wants money. He played for Udinese, Rennes, and Sunderland before heading to the United Arab Emirates, to play for Al Ain. We all know how much money you can earn there, but that didn’t seem to be enough for Gyan, as he recently signed for Shanghai SIPG, in pursuit of further riches.
