List of top 20 highest paid footballers in the world, you will be shocked

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi remains the best-paid star in the game this year.

Although he has not won the Ballon d’Or since 2015, Messi earns more than Cristiano Ronaldo, who won it in 2016 and 2017, while 2018 champion Luka Modric fails to make the top 20.

In fact, the Croatia midfielder’s Real Madrid team-mates Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos and Sergio Ramos all beat him on to the list.
