After Forbes’ release of the latest figures regarding the 100 best-paid athletes, we give you the 14 highest-paid footballers who made the list.

Making it as a top football player entails you to many lucrative gains. Aside from an annual income that normally reaches colossal figures, lucrative commercial deals can also come your way.

Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, however, athletes across the world have suffered losses. In fact, Forbes claims it’s the first time in four years that figures have dropped. This comes as no surprise, considering all the marquee sporting events cancelled over the last few months.

Even the biggest footballers around the world have taken pay cuts to ease the burden on their respective clubs. Compared to many of their peers, though, this was just a slight dip in the ocean.

So using Forbes’ latest figures, we give you the 14 highest-paid football players around the world in 2020.
