Forbes this week released the list of the
top 100 earning Athletes of
2016 and seriously, football stars are not
the only ones that earn big
bucks.Out of the 100, only 12 were
Footballers, Basketballers, Tennis
stars, American football, among other
sports stars were also in the list.
Therefore we look at the top 10 footballers
that made the top 100 and
mind you, there is a big gap between the
top two global football stars
and the rest.Therefore, here are the top
10. Angel Di Maria : – $22.1m
After one disappointing season with
Manchester United , Angel Di Maria
joined Paris Saint-Germain on a four-year
deal in August 2015 at a
heavy loss to United, who had acquired
him for a hefty free from Real
Madrid . It was later leaked that the
Spanish club put an anti- Barcelona
trade clause in their sale of the winger to
prevent him from going to
their rival. In Ligue 1 Di Maria returned to
the form he showed in Spain,
scoring 15 goals and assisting 17 more
times to come in behind
teammate Ibrahimovic as league player of
the year.
9. Bastian Schweinsteinger ; – $22.4m
After 17 seasons (youth and senior), 500
appearances, eight Bundesliga
titles and one Champions League title with
Bayern Munich, midfielder
Bastian Schweinsteiger joined Manchester
United in August 2015 just
after his 31st birthday. New sponsor Beats
by Dre put out an emotive
commercial promoting the end of his era in
Germany and the start of a
new one proving himself outside of his
country. Schweinsteiger helped
lead Germany to the 2014 World Cup.
8. Luis Suarez : – $23.8m
Luis Suarez was overlooked as a top three
finalist for FIFA player of the
year after tallying 51 goals (three more
than winner and teammate Leo
Messi) and 22 assists (the same as Messi )
for Barcelona during 2015.
This season he at least will grab the Golden
Shoe award as Europe’s
top scorer having scored 40 league goals
for the La Liga champions
and a total of 59 goals in 52 appearances
for his club. Compared to his
peers, on a pay-per-goal production basis,
Suarez’ $17 million in salary
and bonus is the best bargain in the sport.
7. Sergio Aguero : – $24.3m
Man City’s top scorer netted his 100th
Premier League goal in April.
Aguero has said that after his contract is up
at the end of the 2018/19
campaign, he will finish his career at
former home Independiente after
paying for the Argentine club’s new
training ground. Puma made Kun,
as he is affectionately known, its highest-
paid footballer in a deal inked
in 2013 and features him heavily in its Euro
2016 campaign.
6. Wayne Rooney : – $26.1m
Wayne Rooney signed a $105 million, five-
year contract extension in
2014 with Manchester United that will keep
him playing at Old Trafford
until June 2019, just shy of his 34th
birthday. That failed to sway
Chinese Super League outfit Shanghai SIPG
from offering him a three-
year, nine-figure after tax deal in January
2016 . About as many were
surprised he rejected it as they were to see
the off-the-pitch wrestling
fan involved in a staged fight in a WWE
event at Manchester Arena in
November 2015. But the father of three
boys is earning a reputation as
a softie, and not just because of the
adorable family shots he
frequently posts on social media.
5. Gareth Bale : – $35.9m
While injuries limited the Welsh
international to just 21 La Liga starts in
the 2015/16 season, he managed to score
19 times, much to the
delight of Real Madrid , who paid a
whopping $118 million to acquire
him in 2013 and is rumored to want to sell
him. No matter where Bale
goes he’s poised to remain a standout
fixture for sponsor Adidas,
having inked a six-year contract in 2014
worth an estimated $35
4. Zlatan Ibrahimovic : – $37.4m
The Swedish striker ended his career with
Paris Saint-Germain in May
2016 as its all-time leading goalscorer and
with four straight Ligue 1
titles and three league player of the year
awards. Up next: a rumored
move, fueled by Zlatan and his agent, to
the Premier League before a
final stop in MLS or his hometown club
Malmo. After a season-long
negotiation with Nike, he returned to
wearing the swoosh under a deal
reported to pay an estimated $3 million
annually through 2019.
3. Neymar : – $37.5m
In April, Neymar won a Webby Award,
considered the Oscars of the
internet, in the sporting category for his
official Neymar Jr. website.
The combination of his prowess on the
pitch and innovation online have
helped him land a dozen endorsement
deals with brands like Nike, Red
Bull, Panasonic, Konami and Gillette. He is
currently the only active
soccer player earning more off the field
than on. Neymar’s playing
contract is worth $75 million over five
2. Lionel Messi : – $81.4m
The reigning Ballon d’Or winner has won
FIFA ’s player of the year
award five times. Messi holds records for
goals for Barcelona , goals in
a calendar year and hat tricks. He was the
first to reach 300 goals in
La Liga competitions. Messi ’s playing
contract is loaded with bonuses
for such feats, which help make him one of
the highest-paid on the
pitch. Main sponsor Adidas capitalize on
their superstar with its Messi –
icon line of shoes and apparel and launched
a “Backed By Messi”
campaign which sees the Argentine
endorse ten of the game’s brightest
1. Cristiano Ronaldo : – $88m
The three-time FIFA best player in the
world and four-time European
Golden Shoe award winner has broken the
50-goal mark six seasons in
a row for Real Madrid to rank as its all-time
leading scorer and is the
top goal scorer in the UEFA Champions
League . He scored the
clinching penalty kick during the 2016
Champions League final to lead
Real to its second title in three years.
Ronaldo ’s Real contract worth
over $50 million a year in salary and bonus
runs through 2018. Ronaldo
is the world’s most popular athlete with
over 200 million social media
followers, which help make him the
highest paid footballer off the pitch.
His head-to-toe sponsorships include Nike,
his signature line of
underwear, shirts, footwear and fragrance,
Tag Heuer, Sacoor Brothers
suits and Monster headphones.h
