After the Italian newspaper ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’ has published on Tuesday the net salaries of all the players who play in Serie A, a player who stands at the top of the list stands out by much difference.
This football player is none other than Cristiano Ronaldo, who pockets 31 million euros each season from Juventus in Turin. In other words, Portuguese crack earns more money than five complete templates (Verona, Brescia, Udinese, SPAL and Parma) of Serie A and almost triple the money of the second highest paid player in the Italian league, than the Dutch Matthijs de Ligt that perceives eight million fixed plus another four in variables.
It should be noted that only Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan), with a salary between fixed and variable of nine ‘kilos’ per year, is the only player outside Juventus who is in the top-10 of the highest paid in Serie A.
Cristiano Ronaldo, 34, still has a contract with Juventus in Turin until 2022, so the Portuguese will continue to expand his checking account at a good pace during the next three campaigns. At that time, multimillion dollar deals will not be lacking either.
