The world’s most popular sport is, without a doubt, football. Over 3.5 billion fans are anticipated to hear about it. With 2.5 billion, only cricket is even remotely competitive. Being well-liked entails earning well. The numbers have reached unbelievable heights, and the trend isn’t slowing down. Let’s discuss the athletes who eat the sweetest pie. Athletes’ club contracts, sponsor agreements, and additional income from social media advertising should all be considered when analyzing the world’s highest-paid athletes.
By agreeing to an enormous new contract with PSG, Kylian Mbappe has surpassed all other footballers in terms of salary. Despite regularly expressing a passion for playing in La Liga, Mbappe decided against doing so and dedicated his career to Paris instead, signing a contract that reportedly gives him authority over player and coach hire. The probable bottling of the champions league next season should be less painful.
The player many believe to be the best in gaming history will take second place. Many people still regard Lionel Messi as the GOAT, even at 35. In the summer of 2021, the Argentine superstar unexpectedly decided to part ways with Barcelona, becoming a free agent. Shortly after leaving Camp Nou, Messi signed with PSG. Leo received an astounding $41 million net compensation from the French heavyweights. A two-year deal with a third-year extension clause was inked.
The next player is Messi’s teammate Neymar, who will begin a new contract with PSG in the summer of 2021. The Brazilian superstar will remain committed to the Parisian team through the summer of 2025 and will be paid $36.5 million annually. The past ten years have seen Neymar consistently ranked in the world’s top five or ten players. If PSG wins the premier continental competition, Neymar will receive a sizable incentive under his contract. He has won countless awards in France; therefore he would undoubtedly exchange many domestic championships for the coveted UEFA Champions League trophy.
