Los Blancos skipper Sergio Ramos, who has been a regular fixture in the dream team, is said to be on £200 000 (R3.6 million) a week in the Spanish capital, while his defensive teammate Marcelo reportedly earns £100 000 (R1.8 million) a week.

The third midfield maestro, Andres Iniesta, is reportedly on £165 000 (R2.9 million) a week at Barca, according to totalSPORTEK.

The front three consisted of the three finalists for the FIFA Best Men's award, a prize that Cristiano Ronaldo won for the fifth time in his career. The Portuguese reportedly earns £365 000 (R6.6 million) every week at Real, while Selecao talisman Neymar is said to be on £446 000 (R8.1 million) a week in France.
