Football ace, Lionel Messi has been named as the richest player in world football ahead of his arch rival, Cristiano Ronaldo.
France Football have compiled a list of the top 10 best-paid players in 2019, which predictably saw two of the game’s greatest-ever players sit first and second.
Messi made a staggering £120million last year, £11m more than Ronaldo who enjoyed his first full campaign at Juventus.
The duo are the only players to surpass the £100m mark on the list which was made up from their wages, bonuses, endorsements, commercial revenue, and other streams.
PSG forward, Neymar pocketed £87m last year while Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale received £35.45m.
