It has emerged that Barca striker, Lionel Messi, earns nearly £600k per week - more than any other player in the world.
Last year, Messi earned £30 (€33.5) Million alone from his wages, which included a bonus for winning La Liga and the Champions League. He is the world's highest paid player, with £570,000 (€635,000) per week from the Spanish giants.
David Beckham is the second highest paid player, with £27 Million for last year. While Cristiano Ronaldo, Ricardo Kaka and Thierry Henry follow suite. Surprisingly Carlos Tevez also makes it into the rich list, in 7th place
José Mourinho is the highest paid manger, with Roberto Mancini close behind. Both earn around £11 Million per year!
