On September 15 of 2013, Cristiano Ronaldo signed a new contract with Real Madrid, which will link him with the club until 2018. The deal extended his previous 2009 contract for 3 more years, since it was set to expire on 2015. Under this new contract, Cristiano Ronaldo new salary was set at 17 million euros (net) per season/year and instantly made of Ronaldo the highest paid footballer in Spain (Lionel Messi most recent contract allows him to earn 16 million euros and he's currently number 2 on that list).

After having signed with Real Madrid in 2009, Cristiano Ronaldo became one of the highest paid soccer players in the World, with a transfer buyout clause of 1 billion euros (release clause). We researched on several publications regarding football players wages and overall earnings (including sponsorships deals). The data is unequivocal as Cristiano Ronaldo is clearly one of the richest football players in the World.

According to a Portuguese source named "Futebol Finance", who publishes a list of the highest paid football players every year, Cristiano Ronaldo was ranked #1 in 2011, with a monthly salary of 1 million euros (1.000.000 euros ~ 1.430.000 US dollars ~ 882.000 British pounds). In terms of monthly salaries, the Portuguese player is followed by Barcelona's Lionel Messi ("La Pulga") who earns a monthly salary of 875.000 euros (~ 1.251.000 US dollars ~ 772.000 British pounds) and Chelsea's Fernando Torres ("El Niño") who gets a monthly salary of 833.000 euros (~ 1.191.000 US dollars ~ 735.000 British pounds). Another Real Madrid player who makes it to the top 10 list is Kaká, FIFA Player of The Year in 2007, who is currently ranked 6th, with a monthly salary close to 750.000 euros (~ 1.073.000 US dollars ~ 662.000 British pounds).
* Exchange rates used for conversion: EUR/USD = 1.430 ; EUR/GBP = 0.882

As you may see below, Barcelona is the only club in the World which puts 5 players in the top 20 highest paid football players list. If we sum those 5 players wages (Lionel Messi, Xavi, Andres Iniesta, David Villa and Daniel Alves), we notice that Barcelona is spending around 3.250.000 euros monthly (3 million and 250 million euros ~ 4.647.500 US Dollars ~ 2.867.000 British pounds), in wages for those 5 key players. That's an interesting curiosity as there seems to be a myth that the big spenders are always Real Madrid, Chelsea or Manchester City, but it turns out to be that Barcelona is actually leading in the aggregated analysis, when considering exclusively the top 20 list.

However, even though the above report is still recent (April 2011), there's some data which is already innacurate, as for example Samuel Eto'o, who recently signed for the Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala and will reportedly receive a monthly salary of 1.708.333 euros (~ 2.442.916 US dollars ~ 1.506.750 British pounds), which makes it around an anual salary of 20,5 million euros (20.500.000 euros ~ 29.315.000 US dollars ~ 18.080.000 British pounds), according to latest reports from Forbes. As a benchmark note, that would almost double Cristiano Ronaldo's current salary in Real Madrid as you may confirm on the table above. To complete this note, this summer transfers and new signings are still missing from the list on this table, since the new Manchester City player, as Sergio Aguero should already appear in the top 10. Nonetheless, it seems to be a fact that Samuel Eto'o will become the highest paid football player in fooball history, in the 2011-12 season, earning more than 20 million euros anually, just accounting salary wages.

Taking a step forward, by looking at this salary data as well as bonuses, endorsements and sponsorships deals made by this sports athletes, we come up with a slightly different list, headed by L.A. Galaxy's David Beckham, who jumps from the 67th position to become the leader of this table (by accounting only for club's wages, Beckham's annual salary was around 4.500.000 euros ~ 6.292.000 US dollars ~ 3.880.800 British Pounds), being followed closely by Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo.

As a curiosity and by making a benchmark analysis to other sports athletes salaries wages, it's still surprising to notice how football players fall behind other sports top performers. If we consider exclusively salary wages (first table shown on this page), the Spanish Fernando Alonso from F1 and Ferrari, earns around 40 Million US dollars per year, more than doubling Cristiano Ronaldo annual salary (17.600.000 Million US Dollars). The only football player who could actually compete with Fernando Alonso, would be Samuel Eto'o and his expected new salary wage of 29.315.000 US dollars (annual values) in FC Anzhi, but still a bit far from the Spanish racer.

Looking at the aggregated values (salaries, bonuses, endorsements, sponsorships), the American golfer Tiger Woods remains untouched, with a total earnings revenues of 75 Million US dollars, according to the latest data gathered from Forbes. This happens despite all the troubles that Tiger Woods got into from his affair scandals related to adultery, which led him to a loss of around 50 Million US Dollars in annual income, over the last 2 years, and which resulted on him losing several valuable sponsorhips. Still far from Tiger Woods are David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo, with 40 and 38 Million US Dollars made annually, respectivelly. The second sports athlete on Forbes Highest Paid Athletes in the World, is Kobe Bryant, from the L.A. Lakers. The American basketball player has a total annual revenue income of 53 Million Dollars.
