Forbes has released their top 10 highest paid players of 2021. Without any surprise, the list features the biggest name not only in soccer but in sports.

This year, Cristiano Ronaldo has reclaimed top spot from Lionel Messi as the highest paid footballer. This is after both superstars completed transfers in the same window.

Ronaldo left Juventus after three relatively successful years in Serie A. The Portuguese superstar re-joined Manchester United in the Premier League.

Lionel Messi left Barcelona after a staggering 17 professional years in La Liga with the Catalans. He joined French giants PSG on a free transfer.

Naturally, both players took a pay cut because of their age. However, they still reign supreme as the highest paid players in football for over the last 10 years or so.

They are followed by PSG duo Kylian Mbappe and Neymar Jr. The attackers are also listed as the next best players after Messi and Ronaldo on FIFA 22.
