Serie A

Check out the highest paid footballer.

Presently, Lionel Messi has topped Forbes' list for the highest earning soccer players. The Argentine took home an eye watering $126 million, $92 million which was in salary and $34 million of which was in endorsements, after Messi resolved a weeks long contract drama to land the top spot with $126 million, nudging out Juventus’ Ronaldo, who comes in at number 2 with $117 million. 

In the past 16 years, Lionel Messi led the team to 34 trophy wins, a performance that has landed his name among the sport’s greats and earned him $1 billion in pretax career earnings. Messi has been sponsored by sportswear company Adidas since 2006 and has established himself as their leading brand endorser. Due to his exploits on the field, Messi is widely regarded as the greatest player ever to grace the game and LaLiga took to Twitter to put forward that message once more. They combined his body with the head of a goat.
