Lavezzi beats Ronaldo, Messi to become highest paid player
NEW DELHI, May 12 (The Hindustan Times): The transfer of Argentine footballer Ezequiel Lavezzi from Paris Saint Germain (PSG) to Chinese Super League Hebei China Fortune in 2016 was not something that gathered a lot of media attention. The 32-year-old forward was struggling to keep his place in the PSG squad and although he was offered big money, it wasn't anything new for the Chinese clubs who are known for their lavish spending.

However, according to the book 'Football Leaks: The Dirty Business of Football', Lavezzi's actual wage is £798,000 per week and that makes him the costliest footballer in the world. He surpassed his compatriot Carlos Tevez by a huge margin and his income is almost double of what Cristiano Ronaldo earns at Real Madrid.

The former Manchester United and Manchester City striker became the highest paid footballer in the world when he signed for Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua at the start of the 2017 season. Tevez has played for teams from all around the world and with a weekly wage of £634,615 per week, he became the gold standard as far as wages are considered in the footballing world. The Real Madrid superstar is considered to be one of the best footballers in the world and in 2016, he achieved the rare distinction of winning the European Championships and the Champions League in the same year. Ronaldo currently earns £424,615 per week and thanks to his exorbitant wage, he is currently the highest paid footballer outside the Chinese League.
