Cristiano Ronaldo Becomes Highest Paid Player After Joining Saudi Arabian Club (See top 10)


Cristiano Ronaldo is now the highest paid player in the world.


This comes after he signed a mouth-watering deal with Saudi Arabian league side Al Nassr on Friday.


He will pocket over $200 million in two years.


Ronaldo was a free agent for just over a month after his contract with Man United was terminated in November.


Once ad revenue is included, the former Real Madrid, Juventus and Sporting Lisbon striker is now the best-paid athlete on the planet.


CBS Sports reports that the entire volume of Ronaldo’s contract with Al Nassr would earn the Portuguese €216m a year.


This by far cannot be measured with the €75m per season of Paris Saint-Germain stars, Lionel Messi and Neymar’s €70m.


Here is list of top ten highest earners after Ronaldo’s contract:


10 Kevin De Bruyne (Man City) – $29m


9 Andres Iniesta (Vissel Kobe) – $30m
