We are here, not to hold a debate about who’s the best football player because we can’t tell about it. But instead of that, we can mention who’s the best paid now; ¿Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo?
This is the second year consecutive with Cristiano Ronaldo in the 1st position of world best football players paid. This Football player in Real Madrid club is the best paid football and athlete in the entire world with 82 million dollars in the last twelve months.
This is a huge reward, but his rival the best player of the year according to FIFA only earned 77 million 51 million in salary and 26 millions from sponsor like EA Sports, Lays and Gatorade.
Messi fans may say that Ronaldo only exist to make the part of the villain in this story but the truth is; financially talking Cristiano Ronaldo is the best paid as opposed to Messi the numbers are pretty close but this two titans are more than numbers.
On the other hand we could talk about a third player Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The last year he earns 37 million dollars in a contract with París Saint-Germain. Then Messi and Ronaldo not only make more money than other football player, but the make more goals and assistances than other.
