The annual list released by Goal which lists the richest footballers in the game has named Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo, as the richest player in 2015.
Cristiano topped the list in 2014 by €2 million. But the Real Madrid star has bolstered and cemented his position as richest, leading second place Lionel Messi by €10 million to register a net worth of €210 million.
Ronaldo has his triumphs with Madrid to thank, leading them to the Champions League and Club World Cup crowns and cashing in their bonuses. He also received a sizable sum for winning the 2014 Ballon d’or.
Messi came in second with his teammate, Neymar, following closely at third place. PSG’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic is fourth, with England and Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney finishing fifth on the list.
