Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly earns three times more than the second best-paid players in Serie A, but who all features in the top 10 list?
Click through the gallery above to see the highest-paid players in Italy’s top division, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Ronaldo has scored loads of goals at the Bianconeri since his arrival from Real Madrid in 2018, perhaps justifying his enormous yearly salary.
The 35-year-old is believed to earn around £28 million (R580 million) annually in Italy, which is more than three times more than the second man in the list, Matthijs de Ligt, who plays alongside Ronaldo in Turin.
The Dutch international reportedly gets paid £7.2 million (R149 million) every season at the Old Lady, and is followed in the ranking by former Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, who is said to earn around £6.8 million (R141 million) every year.
The Belgian’s Inter Milan colleague Christian Eriksen is believed to be on the same wages, though his time at the Italian giants could soon be coming to an end just a year after he arrived from Tottenham Hotspur.
Eriksen has failed to secure a place in Antonio Conte’s strongest XI since his transfer, with the club reportedly preparing to sell him or loan him out in this January transfer window.
Roma striker Edin Dzeko features in the top 10 list, as does three more Juventus players, as well as Inter’s Alexis Sanchez.
