Rumours are that his £500k per week is net which translates into circa £850k gross which = £44m so not far off. Why do pretty much all players have their wages quoted as gross yet Fake Ronnie appears to have his as net. Rags PR machine and secretive deals strikes again. The media love to quote wages about our players yet strangely quiet about this. The first player ever to be paid more than £500k per week.

I've said it before - desperate people do desperate things.
The rags are desperate with a capital D.

This is why I think the rags will be in big for Haaland they will just offer obscene wages/agent fee’s.

Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has reclaimed top spot in the list of the world's highest-paid soccer players from Lionel Messi, according to Forbes.

Ronaldo, 36, rejoined United from Juventus in August after 12 years away, while Messi has swapped boyhood club Barcelona to join Paris St Germain.

Forbes said Ronaldo, among the world's most popular athletes with over 500 million followers across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, is set to make $125 million before taxes in the 2021-22 season, with $70 million coming from salary and bonuses at United.

The rest will come from endorsements and partnerships with brands including Nike, Herbalife, Clear and his CR7 brand.

Messi, who topped last year's list, will be paid a salary of $75 million with an additional $35 million from endorsements for total expected earnings of $110 million.

The Argentine's strike partner at PSG Neymar, who in May signed a new contract until 2025, is third on the list with total earnings of $95 million.

Another PSG player, Kylian Mbappe ($43 million), is fourth on the Forbes list while Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah ($41 million) is fifth.

Top 10 highest earners in soccer:

Cristiano Ronaldo - $125 million

Lionel Messi - $110 million

Neymar - $95 million

Kylian Mbappe - $43 million

Mohamed Salah - $41 million

Robert Lewandowski - $35 million

Andres Iniesta - $35 million

Paul Pogba - $34 million

Gareth Bale - $32 million

Eden Hazard - $29 million
