former sponsors cancel is contract with them, has not stopped him from

This Diego Maradona’s son in-law, who could not inspire Argentina at
this year’s COPA America, was tipped to return to Spain with Real
Madrid, but it appeared that it was mere speculation.

8. Radamel Falcao (Chelsea FC)

His flop with Manchester United, where he was on loan from Monaco,
did not affect his rating as one of the richest football players on
earth.

Falcao, who has since moved to Chelsea, is worth a whooping
$25.9million, nets $21.9million in salaries and has an endorsement of $4
million as well.

his growing profile and he presently pockets a huge $31million and has
$14million in salaries. But his love for flamboyance and apparent
marketability, have ensured that he makes more money in endorsements,
$17million, than his salary.

Gareth Bale, is the most expensive player in world football, after Real
Madrid paid a mouth watering £85million to secure his services from
Tottenham Hotspurs.
