Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has overtaken Lionel Messi to become the highest earner in world football.

Ronaldo’s transfer to Man United has made him the highest-paid footballer in the world, overtaking arch-rival Lionel Messi, according to Forbes.

The Portugal captain will earn almost €107 million gross, including a salary of close to €60 million and more than €40 million in earnings from sponsorships and partnerships with brands including Nike, Herbalife and his CR7 brand, which includes perfumes, clothing ranges, hotels and gyms this season

Argentine superstar, Lionel Messi is sponsored by brands including Adidas, Pepsi and Budweiser.
