2. Cristiano Ronaldo
Joining Juventus in 2018 meant that Cristiano Ronaldo had to take a big pay cut in his salary.
While he may not have his Real Madrid wages anymore, however, the Portgual captain still bags a sweet $65 M.
Ronaldo is also the highest-earner in sponsorship deals, with the likes of Nike and EA paying him handsomely. So his pay-cut at Juventus is nothing more than a small dip in the ocean.
Pay: $109 M
Salary: $65 M
Endorsements: $44 M
