Cristiano Ronaldo set to be the world's highest paid footballer

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Cristiano Ronaldo will not only fulfill his childhood dream of playing at Real Madrid next season, but also becomes the highest paid footballer in the world.

According to Marca, the current World Player of the Year will earn an annual salary of €13 million at the Bernabéu.

The deal will eclipse Zlatan Ibrahimović's €12 million contract at Inter Milan and relegate Kaká to second place in the list of highest paid players at Los Merengues.

Also, it is nearly double the pay packet taken home by Real captain Raúl.

In addition, the Portuguese star will also rake it in from image rights as his image rights will be shared with Real in a deal very similar to that given to David Beckham in 2003.
