Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has failed to set Serie A alight this season, but his staggering annual salary has raised plenty of eyebrows.
The 33-year-old forward has failed to find the net since his £105million move from Real Madrid in the summer.
Ronaldo’s goal woes are unusual for the superstar who was consistently rampant during his nine years in La Liga.
But one thing that has risen since his major switch is his wage packet, estimated to be over £500,000 per week in Italy.
Ronaldo was reportedly raking in around £365,000-a-week while in Madrid, the same terms as Lionel Messi’s wage at Barcelona.
However, his blockbuster transfer has landed him a massive pay day with his annual earnings amounting to three times the next top paid player in Serie A.
The list of top 10 highest earning stars from the Italian league is dominated by Juventus, with five of Ronaldo’s team-mates joining him.
That quintet of stars combined still don’t earn as much as Ronaldo, demonstrating how much of a game-changer his transfer could be.
AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain ranks highly on the list after being ousted from Juventus to make room for Ronaldo.
The former Napoli hero will be hoping to fire the San Siro side back into the Champions League places after a four year absence from the competition.
Inter and Napoli are also represented among the top earners in Serie A, but none come close to matching Ronaldo.
