Jorge Mendes and his Portugal-based agency Gestifute represent the world's "most recognisable athlete" in Ronaldo.
However, it is Bale's agent, Jonathan Barnett, who has become the most powerful agent, not just in football but in all sports too, according to Forbes.
He has overtaken well-known baseball agent Scott Boras, who topped the ranking for the previous six years in a row, as well as last year's runner-up Mendes.
Barnett has negotiated more than $1.28 billion (R18.8 billion) in active player contracts and transfer fees, with his maximum possible commissions exceeding $128 million (R1.9 billion), according to Forbes.
Mendes and his agency, meanwhile, have negotiated $1.18 billion (R17.3 billion) in active contracts and received a $118 million (R1.7 billion) in maximum commissions.
The third highest-ranked agent in football on the Forbes Rich List is Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic's controversial representative Mino Raiola. The Italian-born Dutchman is in fifth position on the overall ranking after making $70.3 million (R1 billion) in commissions and receiving $703 million (R10 billion) in active contracts.
FIFA allows football agents to receive 10% in commission, whereas other sports only allow lower percentages between 3% and 5%, which has resulted in three top football agents among the world's five most powerful agents.
