Barcelona star, Lionel Messi has topped the list of world best-paid players ranking, as he bests his rival and Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo as the richest player in the world.
France Football have compiled a list of the top 10 best-paid players in 2019, which predictably saw two of the game’s greatest-ever players sit first and second.
Messi made a staggering £120million last year, £11m more than Ronaldo who enjoyed his first full campaign at Juventus.
The duo were also the only players to surpass the £100m mark.
The figures are made up of wages, bonuses, endorsements, commercial revenue and other streams.
Following on from the top two, the gap starts to widen for the best-paid players ranking.
PSG superstar Neymar collected £87m for his efforts last year while Real Madrid outcast Gareth Bale received £35.45m in what has been a dramatic fall from grace during his career at the Bernabeu.
Bale narrowly pips Antoine Griezmann to fourth, with the Frenchman earning £200,000 less than the former Tottenham winger.
Manchester City star Raheem Sterling was the only Premier League player and Englishman to make the list, raking in £30.96m during the calendar year.
A surprise inclusion on the list came in the form of Andres Iniesta.
Despite leaving the Nou Camp for Japanese side Vissel Kobe in 2018, Iniesta is still making bank having earned £31.14m in 2019.
Robert Lewandowski came in ninth with a haul of £26.56m.
Kylian Mbappe joins PSG team-mate Neymar on the list, having earned £24.73m last year to complete the top 10 list.
