Who earns the most? You can find it all out here!

The amount of money involved in the world of football right now is at its pinnacle. The marketing aspect of the game has gone up in a hyperbolic fashion and, as a result, the players have also benefited.

These days, footballers make so much money that they can easily feed at least two generations of their own offspring without them having to break a sweat. So, without further ado, let’s have a look at the top 30 highest-paid players in the world!

Note: All the amounts mentioned are waged per-week and before tax.

#30 Marquinhos – £229,583

The PSG defender is number 30 in this list. It is not really shocking given that he is perhaps the best defender in his team as he has surpassed the greatness of Thiago Silva.

#29 Sergio Aguero - £230,137

Sergio Aguero is one of the most consistent strikers in the game right now and it is actually bit surprising that he is at 29 here since someone as consistent could be earning more.

#28 Kevin De Bruyne – £230,137

Meanwhile, his Manchester City team-mate Kevin De Bruyne earns as much as the Argentine, which is what he is deserving of. The Belgian is the connector of the dots between the midfield and attack.

#27 Ivan Rakitic – £230,456

The Barcelona midfielder is the engine at the centre of the park for the Catalans and is almost irreplaceable for the Blaugrana. It must be said that he has been a great replacement for the legendary Xavi Hernandez.

#26 Thomas Muller – £258,074

Thomas Muller might not be the most technically gifted footballer in the world but there is perhaps no one better than him in finding spaces with his off-the-ball movements. He is so good that he would find spaces even in Dhaka’s terrible traffic.

#25 Sergio Busquets – £258,074

At one point in time, Sergio Busquets was the best holding midfielder in the world. While he might not be at the peak of his powers right now, he is still a very good player and his wages are a reflection of that.
