MARCA Compile List Of Top 10 Highest Paid Players In The World

By Chris Wright

Just to compound Cristiano Ronaldo’s narcissistic woes, here’s MARCA’s little infographic of the highest paid players (salary-wise) in world football as is…

You’ve got to sympathise with Ron. How’s a chap supposed to survive on a measly €10 million a year? Just have a butchers at your old pal Rooney up in third spot. Clear advert for the power of the temper tantrum right there.

By the way, struggling with No. 8 on that list? Can’t place the name? This way please.

    Somehow the …notion that no matter what you seem to compile either from transfers or statistics… Ibrahimovich pops up.

    Just makes me smile!

    Top 10 Combined Transfer Fee – Check.

    Top 10 Annual Wage – Check

    Top 10 3rd person anecdotal mentions about himself – check.

    Top 10 hit’n’runs against sports journalists – check.

    He’s always there.
    I wonder how we’ll look at him come 10 20 years time.

  2. Wesley says:

    I thought Anelka made a similar big wage as Drogba..

  3. The Doc says:

    Is it possible to get an idea of the top 10 with endorsements?

  4. Chris says:

    Conca For your information –

    Looks like he now plays in China for Guangzhou Evergrande as that is the badge next to the name and would perhaps explain the salary ! Think Lippi is their manager these days.

  5. Eddie says:

    Yea but Ronaldo and Messi are better than all the other players combined on that list. Based on their skill Ronaldo should atleast get 30 million while Messi gets 35 million.

    @ The Doc
    Cristiano Ronaldo is ahead of all other footballers when endorsements are included, followed by Messi. And when the tax rates of the respective countries are included, Ronaldo and Messi take home much more than Rooney, Torres (and other top Premier League players) do, even in salary alone. Anyway if you check out this list, Ronaldo is doing just fine (unless he is unhappy he doesn’t get as much money as Floyd Mayweather):

    Pretty sure City announced that Carlito was the Highest payed player in the club

  8. Street says:

    I thought Tevez had a clause in his contract that ensured he is City’s highest player. I think Marca may have used a bit of artistic license.

  9. The Doc says:
