Who are the highest-paid footballers in 2019? Know it here

Football is the most popular sport in the world.

Owing to its immense popularity and a loyal fan base, it is also one of the most financially rewarding sports for the players.

As a result, footballers who are genuine match winners, go on to become the top-paid players in the world.

In the same light, we take a look at top-paid footballers of 2019.

Andres Iniesta

A €27 million worth Spanish veteran

While he may no longer be associated with European football, but Spanish veteran and sensation Andres Iniesta is among the top five.

He rose to fame with Barcelona, as he continues to enjoy a good run at Japanese club Vissel Kobe, where he is the highest-paid player.

Having done wonders for both Barca and Spain, his pay of €27 million is justified.

Alexis Sanchez

A debatable number four

Alexis Sanchez was a sensation for Arsenal, scoring 80 goals in 166 matches, across four seasons.

As a result, he was offered a whopping contract with a big pay of €28.8 million by Manchester United.

However, he has failed to make an impact at Old Trafford ever since, scoring five goals in 45 matches.

Nonetheless, he finds himself on fourth spot in this list.

Cristiano Ronaldo

CR7 earns €31 million these days

CR7 earns €31 million these days

As we enter the superstar zone, it starts with a no-brainer in the form of Portuguese sensation Cristiano Ronaldo.

It must be remembered that CR7 took a pay cut post his move to Juventus from Real Madrid, thus finding himself on the third spot.

However, he still earns enough with Turin-based club, with his annual pay being €31 million.

Neymar

PSG to pay €36.8 million to Neymar

It's an irony that the second-most top-paid footballer in the world is not the happiest one.

While it could be due to his personal reasons, Neymar's performance at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) too has not been worth the money.

Although he has 51 goals in 58 matches, he remains injury-prone.

Further, he has also failed to deliver in the Champions League.

Lionel Messi

€40 million for the Little Magician

€40 million for the Little Magician

Who is more deserving than the Little Magician?

While he faced a competition from Ronaldo a couple of years back, but Lionel Messi is now back at the top.

Being Barcelona's guardian angel, the Argentine has so far shown no signs of slowing down.

Currently being paid €40 million, Barca would keep scaling it high to keep him at Camp Nou until his retirement.
