It’s not “65.7 billion” Messi or “146.1 billion” Neymar…Who’s the world’s highest paid top 1?
Who is the world’s highest-paid soccer player.
Al-Hilal officially announced Neymar’s transfer through the club’s official SNS on the 16th (Korea Standard Time). Al-Hilal posted a video of about 1 minute and 10 seconds, releasing Neymar’s official video.
After Neymar’s transfer to Al Hilal was officially announced, Romano said, “Neymar will receive a record annual salary of $300 million (about 4006 billion won) for two years. There is no contract extension. Neymar’s annual salary could potentially rise to $400 million (about 534.2 billion won) by 2025, depending on bonus clauses and commercial transactions. His father, Neymar Pi, and his super agent, Finny Zahavi, have struck a deal,” the report said.
Since PSG was considering releasing Neymar, the sale process proceeded in an instantaneously. When Neymar sent a green light to Al Hilal, PSG also allowed the transfer. Fabriz Hawkins, a reporter for France’s “RMC Sports” who is fluent in PSG internal information, also said on the 14th, “Neymar agreed to move to Al Hilal.” The transfer fee is 90 million euros (about 131.5 billion won) and a bonus. I signed a two-year contract. Neymar’s six-year career at PSG ended,” he said.
Neymar’s move to Al Hilal has changed the world’s highest-paid ranking again. France’s “Le Parisien” shed light on the 10 highest-paid players in the world with 15 eggs. Real Madrid legends Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo tied for first place. The salary of the two players who chose to go to the Saudi League in 2023 was 200 million euros (about 292.2 billion won).
Ngolo Kante and Neymar tied for third. Neymar is paid more than Kante, including the bonus clause, but the base salary seems to be the same as Kante. Their annual salary was 100 million euros (about 146.1 billion won). Fifth place was Kylian Mbappe. Mbappe received 70 million euros (about 102.2 billion won) from PSG. 스포츠토토
There was not much difference between 6th and 10th places. Messi, who plays for Inter Miami, ranked sixth with 45 million euros (about 65.7 billion won). Liverpool legends Sadio Mane and Jordan Henderson came in seventh with 40 million euros (about 58.4 billion won). Riyad Mahrez, who moved from Manchester City, ranked 10th with 35 million euros (about 51.1 billion won) and Kalidou Koulibaly, who joined from Chelsea, with 30 million euros (about 43.8 billion won).
As many as eight out of the 10 highest-paid players belonged to the Saudi Arabian League. It was a statistic that showed how much capital Saudi Arabia had and how much investment it had.
