When it comes to salaries, Athletes are among the highest-paid. The top five highest-paid footballers in the world have been revealed.

New details show that the Barcelona forward Lionel Messi is the highest-paid footballer in Europe. Leaked details further indicate that the Argentine international has the biggest deal in the history of the sport.

Reports by L’Equipe indicate Messi earns a weekly wage of £2.1 million, which can be easily translated to an eye-watering £108.2 million per year.

Top five highest-paid footballers in Europe.

Juventus and Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo earns £900,000 in his weekly wage packet from Juventus. This translates to £46.7 million per year. Surprisingly, his salary is less than half of what Messi earns.


PSG and Brazilian Neymar ranks third. The most expensive player in football history earns £606,000 per week (£31.5 million per year)

Fourth is Atletico Madrid star  Luis Suarez who earns around £575,000 per week. Joint is Barcelona star  Antoine Griezmann who earns something similar wich is just under £30 million per year.

Kylian Mbappe will apparently get a salary increase to €30 million per season if he signs a new PSG contract.

But that still only works out as about £25.7 million per year for the 22-year-old. So not quite enough to crack the incredibly high earners at the top of this list.
