Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the best two footballers in the world and unsurprisingly they also lead the world of football when it comes to yearly earnings.

It’s not going to be on any breaking news that footballers are well paid. Stories about Paul Pogba being offered £500k-a-week aren’t even that shocking to us anymore, even if we can still question if he’s earned it.

But wages are just the start of it with bonuses and endorsements also stretching into the millions. Forbes have released their rich list of football’s top earning players and there’s some eye watering amounts of money being made.

To break it down Messi earns $92 million in salary and bonuses every year, nice work if you can get it, and another $35 million in endorsements.

Ronaldo’s $44 million endorsements are the highest in that area but he doesn’t earn as much as his rivals when it comes to wages at their clubs.
