Highest-Paid Players In The Champions League In 2021/22

With the UEFA Champions League returning on Tuesday night, here are the 10 highest-paid players in the tournament this season, including Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who are both representing new teams!

Click through the gallery above to see the best-paid players in this season's Champions League, according to Radio Times.

Europe's biggest club competition returns this week, with some big fixtures set to take place over the course of the next two nights.

While Barcelona host Bayern Munich in a Group E fixture at the Camp Nou and Manchester United take on Young Boys in Switzerland on Tuesday, Paris Saint-Germain are away at Club Brugge on Wednesday.

As a build-up to the exciting events, we have taken a look at who the highest-earning players in the Champions League this season are, and the list is filled with the biggest names the sport has to offer.

New Red Devils signing Ronaldo ranks at seventh, with the 36-year-old Portugal captain being paid about £382 000 (R7.5 million) a week before tax by the 20-time English champions, per Radio Times.

This figure sees the former Real Madrid and Juventus forward feature higher than Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski, who became the third-greatest goalscorer in the history of the tournament last season when he scored his 73rd strike in the competition.

Ronaldo Reacts To Record-Breaking Man Utd Return

Kylian Mbappe, Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez are all said to earn more than Ronaldo, as are Antoine Griezmann, Neymar and Messi, whose salaries before deductions can be seen in the gallery above.
