FOOTBALL FINANCE | CRISTIANO RONALDO EARNS MORE THAN MESSI & NEYMAR

The prestigious American Financial magazine "Forbes" has printed their list of the "Highest Paid Sportsmen in the World". The Nº1 earner is American golf player Tigers Woods with 59,5 M€ followed by Tennis ace Roger Federer with 54,4 M€. In the Top 10 appears Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Drew Brees etc., as one would expect. But what about Football - Soccer - players ? 

World Soccer

The first & highest Football player on the list is now retired, that is David Beckham with 35, 9M€. However technically speaking it is not at all 100% accurate & Beckham now enters more into the "Sportsman" category. The highest money earning Footballer - Soccer player - currently active is Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo with 33, 5M€ & he is followed by FC Barcelona forward Lionel Messi with 31,4M€. 

Newly signed to FC Barcelona Brazilian youngster Neymar is in Nº 68 spot with earnings of 15,6M€. Although I have a feeling this will be changing soon & the player will make a big jump up the list in coming months.
