Cristiano Ronald overtakes Lionel Messi to become world's highest-paid footballer: Forbes

| @indiablooms | 22 Sep 2021, 11:51 pm

Soccer sensation Cristiano Ronaldo has overtaken Lionel Messi as the highest-paid footballer in the world, according to the latest rankings released by Forbes.

This happened with Ronaldo's much-hyped return to the Manchester United football club.

Ronaldo is set to earn $125 million before taxes in the 2021-22 season, with $70 million coming from salary and bonus for his return to United.

The 36-year-old is set to earn an estimated $55m from commercial deals, said reports.

Apart from him, three other active athletes make more commercially including Roger Federer, LeBron James and Tiger Woods.

Ronaldo left Juventus in a stunning move back to United, where he had played from 2003 to 2009.

The Portugal star earlier broke the world record for most international goals this year.
